We started our adventure at the Fox Valley Mall in Appleton. We did our clothes shopping in Penney's where we found many good deals especially on little boys' clothes. It seems clothes for boys is significantly cheaper than clothes for girls. No wonder it was always so costly to clothe our girls. Tizita occupied herself with the hopscotch board while John checked out all of our purchases. Tiz walked away with a Hello Kitty purse, a dress, a cute sparkly shirt, pink leggings, a love heart shirt, a pair of red shoes, and a cute pair of pink boots. That along with some polos, pants, and a Packer shirt for Little "L" made for a successful shopping trip.
Of course, we had to stop at the candy dispensers to use up a few quarters.
I could not believe that these two had to sit down and rest this early in our trip, but they did.
We wanted Tizita to make a Build a Bear to commemorate her first day in four year old Kindergarten so she chose a cute pink teddy bear. Here she is stuffing the bear.
Tizita enjoyed fluffing up and brushing her bear.
Then it was time to register her bear and give it a name. Tizita named her bear, Pinky. She chose a little blue hippo for her little brother. I have a feeling he is going to like that little hippo very much.
Grandpa and Tizita heading to the food court for lunch. I am guessing they both need to rest their legs again.
Here are Pinky and Tizita enjoying a Subway salami sandwich for lunch.
After our mall adventure, we headed over to Monkey Joe's for some inflatable fun. It was our and Tizita's first visit to MJ's and it did not disappoint. For a mere $7.99, a child gets to play as long as they want on many fun inflatables.
Here is Monkey Joe himself with that cute little lady sitting between his legs. This was her favorite activity. Not just sitting there, but doing this particular obstacle course.
Here she is in the middle of that inflatable.
There were lots of big steps to climb.
There was also lots of running.
The big slides were so much fun. I think she went down that slide a hundred times
Tizita and Grandma enjoyed some skittles together.
And the best was yet to come, we ended our fun day with some mini golf at the course in Oshkosh. Tiz was so worried that she would do something wrong during the golf game, but we assured her that there was nothing she could do wrong on a mini golf course. John and I had already determined that we would not keep score so as not to make the game take an ugly turn due to the fact that we are both way too competitive.
Here Tiz and I take a little break. We all had a great time and I know Tiz enjoyed her first attempt at mini golf.
Whenever one of us gets a hole in one, we take a photo with our finger up in the air to signify our hole in one. This family tradition started up in Door County with Mallory one year. We played every mini course on the door peninsula that vacation and we all posed for our hole in one picture. We continued the tradition with Tiz. The only thing is she wanted to hold up two fingers after this hole, since she said it was her second "hole in one." Made sense to us.
We finished with some video games and yummy pizza at West End Pizza. It was indeed a fun filled day and I know we will all remember it for a long time. I think both Tizita and I are ready for school now.
Note to Little "L" - I just want to tell you that when you get home to us, we will take you on lots of adventures, too, just like we take your sister. We are looking forward to enjoying fun times with both of you. Stay happy and heathly. Your mama, papa, and sister will be there before you know it! We love you so much.
