Around 3 pm on Friday, Miss Priss decided she wanted to take the bus to the mall. We walked 3 blocks to catch it. We were lucky it came by after only about 4 minutes.
We walked from one end of the mall to the other, doing whatever she wanted. We went upstairs and down, on escalators, stairs and elevators. We visited Build A Bear, had coffee (and a crushed ice fruit drink for her) at the Nordstrom E-bar. Then she wanted to walk from the mall to a nearby shopping center (about 3 blocks).....so we did.....sneaking through bushes, and stopping at a Hilton hotel on the way to check out the lobby, and have a look at the pool. We enjoyed a walk around a lake to get there. Then we rode the outdoor carousel twice, and the kiddy Christmas train all around the place. The weather was so beautiful.
On the walk back to the mall, we saw ducks (mom and babies). After we got back there, Emily just dropped down on the floor, and said in a long drawn out voice, "I'm tired"!!!!! I burst out laughing because she was so energized up to that point. Ha. Anyway, by then it was 6pm, and her Mom was just getting off work, so we rested on a nice padded bench there, and we pretended to do things the way a princess does, as compared to how Honey BooBoo would.....and she found that to be so funny, and silly....soon her Mom was there to get us. It was one of the most magical days I've had in a long time!
