We visited the Mall of America this weekend along with five thousand Girl Scouts. I have to admit, I’ve never seen the mall so packed and it made me a little nervous. Elisabeth has been experimenting with her independence. She’ll hold my hand for a few minutes but then she wants to let go to investigate whatever strikes her fancy.
I love that she’s becoming more independent, BUT if she gets lost she’ll never hear her name being called. I guess if there was a best time to get lost it would be when the mall is overrun with Girl Scouts. I wonder if there’s a lost and found badge?
I try to tell myself not to worry but she’s this fast:
Of the one hundred photos I took, this is the least blurry.
Okay, I did get a few non-blurry ones:
On our way out, we had to walk by the Lego store. Someone who shall remain nameless (though I call her “Elisabeth”) couldn’t just walk by, she had to stop in and play for a few minutes.
We made one last stop on the way out of the mall to look at the fancy dresses.
