I've found myself living at malls this summer, especially when the weather is hot and humid. Today we continued our weekly routine of having cheap fun at the mall. I went to not one, but two malls today just to get out of the house. The good news is that I only bought one thing: a Lego set for Sophie. It's almost impossible to really shop when you're pushing around a stroller with a struggling and impatient toddler, so I don't even try. We just flit from play area to play area within the mall, in a quest to tire her out.

We met up with our friends Helen and Kaila at Fair Oaks Mall this morning for a playdate. Kaila is such a sweet and good kid.

This was about the only time Sophie wanted to leave my side and play among the other kids this morning.

If they don't already recognize us at the Apple Store by now, they really should.

...and in the evening, we visited the Lego store at Tyson's Corner Center.

Why are there always only 2 trains for 10 kids at the Thomas table in every Barnes and Noble? That's a catalyst for trouble!

Jumping on our couch--not OK. Jumping on the squishy mall couches? Go for it!

Eating dinner like a champ at Coastal Flats. Yes, that's MY daughter dipping sweet potato fries in ketchup. Very nutritious, I know.
