Fun With Children

Yesterday, I had a delightful morning at the Mall with Crista and Isabella. Crista needed to do some shopping, which she rarely (read: never) gets to do, and I was happy to occupy her cute little girl, who loves to go go go the second you put her on her feet, like a little roadrunner.

She seems to be quite a seasoned shopper (thanks Mom!), and seemed to gravitate towards anything pink or rainbow. It seemed that she wasn't looking to spend, but was happy to browse extensively:

The shopping was so exhausting, we had to go eat some apple wedges and Goldfish crackers out of Tupperware.

We had a lovely morning. And Crista was able to find a nice outfit for the show. So everybody had a good time.

Crista and Tarek deposited Isabella at the neighbor's house, and rented some kids for the night to form a lovely makeshift nuclear family:

(L.-R. Ally & Stormy). These girls were so adorable, and so completely out-of-their-minds excited about the show they could barely speak.

They screamed their way through the show from the front row, a perfect vantage point of yours truly...oh and some girl named Miley too.

I hear she's okay.

And to top it all off, as we were leaving we ran into the Jonas Brothers backstage, and the girls got a picture with them:

And then their brains fell out.

  1. I loved your "Fun With Kids" entry. The pic of you and Miley was an awesome shot. Isabella is adorable and what a cute little shopper. I know those girls enjoyed meeting the Jonas Brothers big time. This is like living your experiences with you and it's fun for me...thanks!

  2. I thought you weren't able to get anyone tickets LOL

    Anyways...yes, that very much reminds me of trying to shop w/ just doesn't happen...and then you let them lose and their owners LOVE that...not to mention me when you try to pick her up and reason with her. FORGET IT!!!


  3. Gail: Glad you're enjoying it. It was nice to be able to make those girls so happy.
