Continuing our mini spring break in Minneapolis...
We got up in the morning and ate breakfast at the hotel. The kids love helping make waffles or whatever they are serving. Of course we had to have another quick swim in the pool before heading to the Mall of America!
My little girl's first roller coaster, which I had to go on with her (under a certain height needs an adult to ride). I was pretty squished in those tiny little seats! Ha!
We saw the Easter Bunny! First year with no tears! She's growing up!
Andrew's face here cracks me up. He loved these bumper cars, and I couldn't believe he was old enough to go by himself!
It took him a few tries to figure out how to get it to move! But once he got it, he flew around and around!
They always love going on the Wonder Pets flyboat together.
This time was especially funny because Andrew's shoe fell off from the top! Ha! He was laughing so hard!
We loved our lunch overlooking Nickelodeon Universe!
After lunch I got to take my girl to the Barbie Dreamhouse! She was so excited after seeing it the night before when it was closing.
Inside you signed your name up and picked your character and a pet. Then everything was operated through your bracelet and you could scan it to make certain things happen.
Posing on Barbie's couch!
This place was pretty much a little girl's dream. Everything (and I mean everything!) was pink. Even the lighting was pink, which was not good for picture taking purposes, but it was so fun.
This is terrible quality but Kerigan said it was her favorite thing so I wanted to include it. It was a sleigh "ride" where you watch a screen and it is like you are riding a sled with Barbie.
Baking cupcakes in the oven and playing a game in Barbie's living room!
I mean they seriously had it all. Barbie's horse peeking out of a stable, and singing karoke on the piano!
These would have been amazing if it weren't for the pink lighting!
She was standing in a giant ring
This was her other favorite thing- Barbie's closet, of course! You stood here and looked in a mirror and if you put your arm up it changed outfits so when you looked in the mirror it was like she was wearing different clothes. She was mesmerized.
Out on the deck, overlooking the beach! Why wouldn't Barbie have any other view but the beach!?
This was a little ice cream cart on the deck/patio.
On Barbie's HUGE bed- you could scan your bracelet and see your name on the canopy. She was looking at her name.
A giant music box! When you turned the handle the ballerina twirled around. Again, she just loved this!
This was inside a phone booth!
A mini Eiffel Tower!
And a tea party with my girl.
Fixing Barbie's hair while waiting to get her makeover.
This was so much fun- they did her make up and she just thought it was the coolest thing ever.
This girl... does she look like she's in her element or what??
She pretty much could have stayed here all day.
They had a little runway and music was blaring and she came out and walked the runway! It was so precious! She was just eating it up!
Afterwards we met up with Daddy and Andrew and she ran to her daddy to show him her make up! He was less than thrilled about it I think- Ha! He keeps saying she's not going to date until she's 30! He's keeping her his little girl for as long as he can!
Of course, couldn't leave without a visit to the American Girl store.
One last ride on the balloons with my kids before heading home!
Oh how I love them! We always have so much fun together- they are just the best kids in the whole world! Our little family had the best time at the MOA! Until next time!
