Day 3 of our vacation was a laid back, take it easy type of day. That morning Oma, Tarrish, Carolyn, & I went shopping at Target & See's Candy for some Easter goodies while Opa & Trek watched all 8 grand babies.
When we got back we ate lunch & put the kiddos down for a little nap. When they woke up & took off for the mall. Valencia Mall is huge now. It's not at all like it was back when I was living there & dating Trek. It's a beautiful mall & there's SO many fabulous stores there now. We had a blast walking around enjoying it all. Tarrish even got to have Trek take her to the Apple store (his "happiest place on earth") to help her pick out an iPad.
The kids played in the play area & we just relaxed & had fun together.
After playing for an hour or so, we took the kiddos inside for a ride on the carousel. We LOVE the carousel in the mall. It's so fun for the kids as well as for the adults.
The girls opted for the spinning teacup. Ugh. How do they get on that thing without throwing up?
I got to be with Canyon. He was hilarious on that cheetah. He didn't really know what was happening, but he knew it was really fun & his face showed how much he loved it.
Oma took Bladen for a ride. He's a pro at carousels & loves them.
Canyon was cracking me up. Every time his animal would go up he'd start laughing hysterically which would crack me up. We were both laughing the entire ride. I don't think kids get any cuter than him. He's too fun.
Opa took Craiger on his horse. Craiger has a very special place in his heart for his Opa. They have a blast together.
Afterwards everyone was tired again. Opa caught a nice nap with Canyon.
And Lorien hung out with little Ella. They might be 8 years apart, but they sure love each other. Cousins are the best.
