A while back we were supposed to go to the Multiple Joys family picnic, but it was called off due to rain. I know, right?! We live in PHOENIX! Anyway...we were disappointed, but we still wanted to do something fun as a family. We proposed the idea of going to McDonald's or Burger King, and the kids were SO excited because we hardly ever go there.
When we got out of the car at BK the kids were very excited that the windshield wipers stayed halfway up when we turned off the car, and loved the rainbow the rain made in the parking lot. Some people are easily entertained, I guess. Isn't it funny how excited kids can get about the little things in life that we just ignore?
They loved playing in the play area. I thought Jaime would appreciate this sign posted on the play structure. Yes, we did see something weird, in fact. THREE somethings. Very weird.
Next we went over to the mall. The kids were able to participate in Minnie's Masquerade Ball at the Disney Store. They decorated crowns, played a game, learned a dance, and had a little parade.
Then we went to the Lego store. Michael was proud of his 'Lego guys'. Notice, they are all wearing jet-packs. Very important, especially for the doctor. Emma liked the little lady she made.
We were lucky enough to happen upon a Lego build they were doing that day. Usually the Lego builds are once a month on a Tuesday night. (You should check that out if your kids are 6 or older. Free Legos?! Hecks Yeah! Anyway...) The kids were able to make a keep a Lego Bunny Rabbit.
After the mall we headed to a birthday party for a girl in Michael's class. The kids had a great time running around with their classmates.
So, although it started with a rain-out, it turned out to be a pretty good day!
