Birthday Weekend, Part Deux

After the big Wiggles concert we headed over to the big shopping mall to spend the afternoon exploring. In a large outdoor plaza a local radio station had some sort of amateur time. Local bands, seemingly comprised of area high schoolers, got a chance to play for 15-20 minutes on the stage. One of the bands we heard was actually quite good. The other needed to find a lead singer who could actually sing.

The area around the plaza had several sets of stairs that the boys ran up and down for a loooooong time. Seriously. I think we spent 30 minutes running up and down stairs and ramps.

Afterwards we steered the kids toward a children's art...something. I'm not sure exactly what to call it. It was like a children's museum, but filled with art tables, paper, templates, crayons, colors, scissors, glue, paints, simply TONS of things. Each child got a bag to fill with their creations when they walked in the door.

Brogan made a pair of goggles and a cape. He wore those out the door and around the mall. It was fun to watch other people's reactions to his superhero costume.

Here's Colson coloring his own pair of goggles.

For lunch we dined at the Crayola Cafe. A very cute and colorful place to dine. It was in the open part of the mall, so we got to do a lot of people watching. That's M. and the boys at the table under the sign.

I am thankful to have children who are not afraid to pose for my camera in public places.
