I think we are at Maximum capacity here. The kids were great but towards the end of our trip there we were definitely missing the space of the minivan. The minivan looked great so we bought it and then headed to do some shopping. We went to IKEA where we first had a very late lunch. The kids loved watching the movie Robots while we ate.
We bought just a couple of storage containers and then headed for Woodfield Mall for a special surprise for the kids. They were so good through all of the boring stuff that goes with buying a new vehicle I thought they deserved it.
The surprise was a trip to Rainforest Cafe for our special dessert that they would normally just get at Disney. They were very excited.
The favorite Volcano. I forgot to get a pic with the sparkler on top. This a great family treat to share. We still can't eat a whole one.
Hannah loved looking at all the fishies swimming by.
So did Blake and Liah. Liah still doesn't like when the thunder storm comes through but thankfully that only lasts a minute.
This was the aquarium favorite this trip and the kids loved trying to follow the eel around.
There was also a balloon guy who made them a snake and a flower to take home.
We then headed home with Josh and the kids in the new van and me in the car all by myself. I had a very quiet drive home. I'm not sure if Josh can say the same. It was a great day.
