Carousels and Thieves

Today Missa and I took Cade to the mall, because it's still too cold to take him outside, and he was desperate to get out of the house. He kept mournfully saying, "buh-bye, buh-bye," because he was so bored. So after a delish lunch at Subway, we rode the carousel, which he loved, he couldn't stop laughing the whole time, telling everyone around, "Hosies! Hosies!" He's just learning his animals now, and I was pleased he knew they were horses, because he usually calls any mammal on four legs bigger than a cat a cow. So here's a couple pics:


Afterward we did a bit of shopping, and this is a pic of the glasses he stole from Buckle. I swear, if I were a thief, my kid would be the best crime partner ever. He's stolen countless things that I've had to return, including these glasses today, which were so hot. I totally wanted them, but decided to choose the right, yo, and return them.

So I'd say it was quite the fun day. I got my nails filled. and spending time with my niece Marissa (Missa, as Cade says) is so much fun. Sometimes I think she feels obligated to be my friend because we're family, but I work hard to stay up on the "cool trends" the kids are doing these days so that I fit in. :) And I think I achieved that with the hat today, yes?

Brie, I so do not feel obligated to be your friend. You don't see me heading over to Amber or Misty's house to hang out (not that I don't love both of them, not that I wouldn't hang out with them). But my point is, you are a bestest friend of mine, and I love hanging out with you. The mall time was beautiful and I loved Cade's theivery skills.

What a fun day! Which mall has the carousel? That looks fun. South Towne has the dinosaur playground that Weston thinks is pretty awesome and its a good outing when its cold out. That's so hilarious that Cade is a little klepto and ps-i love the hat!

Shannon, the carousel is in the food court at Southtowne Mall. Cade and I go there at least once a week to play with the hosies and go to the dinosaur play land. Maybe you just missed it? It's right near the doors.

Love the hat, Brie! I could never pull off something that cute!! How old is Cade these days? He looks like he is growing up way too fast!!
