MOA: Toddler Tueday

It was a very event filled few hours. We went to the Mall of America for Toddler Tuesday to see a sampling of Willy Wonka. Isabel enjoyed coloring the pictures they had out and did a really good job at trying to stay in the lines. We did a scavenger hunt within Nickelodeon Universe to find 10 stars (wasn't too easy, took a little while) and now we get entered into a drawing for a family trip to Orlando.

She got to meet Dora (who was a top priority to meet since she wasn't there on Isabel's birthday, and I made sure that she would be this time), Blue, Sponge Bob & Patrick.

I gave her a couple of options on other things to do here that cost money and what she really wanted to do was go to the Butterfly Garden. Works for me! Cost less than the other options. It was a good exercise in making decisions and knowing you don't get everything all the time. She didn't complain at all and was very happy with all the things she did get to do. You could end up spending quite a bit of money there.

Below is her coloring & her final project.

I love that Legoland is a free activity to do at the MOA. It was one of the top things she was requesting to do and I was happy to oblige. She was very proud of her project that she created.

I did let the kids go on one ride, it was just one of those dollar rides, so no big deal, But they were both happy. They actually changed the "cheap toddler" wristband and now it's only 5 (opposed to 10) rides and only one of them she is tall enough to do on her own. She is pretty close to the height for the others and may be tall enough very soon. Hopefully she will go through a growth spurt before we go again in August because I would like to let her go on some rides since some friends plan to join us that time.
