Visit to the Easter Bunny!

According to the calendar, it’s Spring. However, take one step outside and it is clear that Mother Nature hasn’t looked at the calendar. It’s cold, windy, cold, and we’re supposed to get some snow tonight! I’m not impressed.

Since outdoor activities aren’t real fun yet, I decided to take Adam to the Mall of America today to see the Easter Bunny for the ‘Toddler Tuesday’ activity. This was our first Toddler Tuesday. Adam has never been to MOA and it’s been a while since I’ve been there. I’m one of those dorks who thinks the Mall is pretty cool and fascinating, so I’m always looking for a reason to go there!

With my lack of experience traveling there, I managed to park on the wrong side of the Mall, so we had quite the walk in order to make it to the Best Buy Rotunda. Soon after we arrived, the Easter Bunny showed up. Adam was so excited!! We were a few rows back, but Adam was smiling, waving, and saying ‘Hi!’ I was hoping he would feel the same way when we finally got to the front of the line. He did, and here’s the cute pic!

After visiting the Easter Bunny, there were stations set up in Nickelodeon Universe where the kids could get treats. We wandered through and found the goodies, and Adam thought the place was pretty cool! We got pretty hungry from all the walking around so I decided it would be fun to take Adam to Rainforest Cafe for lunch. He thought all the animals and fish were so neat! We got seated right next to a fish tank and he couldn’t keep his eyes off the fish!

After our yummy lunch (Adam ate every bite!) we wandered back to the car and hit the road for home and nap time. We stopped for one last picture:

It’s days like this that make me even more thankful for my job. I am so lucky to be able to work but also spend wonderful days like this with my favorite little man!
