Prison Break!

Enough already! I had been trapped in the house with the kids too long. Rod had a day off, so we went to the play area in our local mall with my sister Joanna and her two girls Alex (4yo) and Kate (21 mos.) My parents also came to play with the kiddos. It was nice for us to get out and good for the kids to spend some time with their cousins and have fun climbing and running. Julia loving the slide!

Daddy spent a lot of time playing Goalie at the entrance. It was his job to keep all kids in the play area!

But he got in some play time with Alex.

Lunch at the food court. Everyone was very good and ate well.

Will and Daddy took a ride on the carousel in the food court.

It is a big double decker carousel.
We did have a little bit of a scare after lunch. We were loading into the elevator to go back downstairs to our cars. When the elevator doors opened, Will and Kate stepped in and suddenly the doors closed. Joanna and I lunged for the doors. We were able to get the outer doors open, but the door to the elevator car was still closed. I turned to run for the stairs hoping to catch them at the bottom, but just then the doors opened. Will had pressed the "door open" button. What a smart boy! When I told him I was so proud that he thought to press that button, he asked, "Was I a hero?" Yeah, you were buddy.


  1. Glad you were able to break out! Glad the elevator incidnet worked out as well! I'm NEVER letting them out of a stroller! :)

  2. LOVE the picture of Julia on the slide. She just looks like she's floating in paradise. lol And wow, that was awesome of Will to think so quickly and open the door. He was a hero alright.
