So instead of pouting, cleaning and prepping on this Sunday, Lucy and I headed to the airconditioned chaos of Mall of America. We walked around. We saw a friend. We tried hard to find the giant shark giving out free ride tickets.
In the end I had to buy a pass so Lucy could go on some rides. I couldn't resist. She was disappointed when we didn't run into "free-ride shark man" in the mall but understood that our funds were limited and that we might not go on any rides. I mean, if she would have thrown a fit, or whined and cried, I might have saved our budget.
but really, to deny her this joy? for $9.00 (unlimited rides). I couldn't. Of course, I will be denying us that trip to the movie theater on Tuesday because of today's lack of denial. Oh well. We'll do something free and fun instead. I really wanted to support her good nature.
and i knew she loves the thrill of a good spinny ride!
I really loved that I could be a spectator while she loved the spinny rides.
and the hoppy/droppy rides
