So I took the kids to the mall on Saturday thinking that we were going to see some guy doing some sort of dinosaur thing. Like juggling bones and such. But as we neared the area it would be in I realized I got my dates confused and that was going to be the next week. I thought oh well we would still get the kids signed up for the mall kids club. They get a free backpack, t-shirts, a different activity to go to once a month and get to spin the wheel of fun and get a prize every time we go to the mall. Not bad for a one time payment of 5 dollars.
So we did see there was something going on. It was this thing called stay cation. There were lots of places giving things away and the State Fairs mascot, the Aquariums mascot, and clowns!
The clowns did blow up balloon animals and face painting. Holly got a butterfly on her face and Josh got Elmo on his arm (he did NOT want anything on his face). All in all the kids had fun and that is all that mattered.
