tuesday.

these days it seems like if i don't get outside of our house at least once every day i start feeling really cooped up. its great where we live to be able to step outside and have a huge area for corbin to run and ride his bike and explore and i love watching him discover new things that he's walked right past before. but its always fun to change it up and im always looking for fun things for us to go do together during the day. the only problem with actually leaving the house is that it usually involves money and times are tough 'round here so finding free (or close to it) things to do is where its at!

so yesterday we packed up and headed to bellevue to play at the mall. an instagram friend is always sharing pictures of her daughter at the disney store playing and well, we all know how much corbin loves buzz lightyear so i knew he would have fun there! plus i remember my niece and nephew playing in the marvin the martian spaceship there when they were little so i was hoping they'd still have some fun toys like that! plus there is the play area that every mall has so i packed a lunch and we were on our way! 

first stop was the play area and i was shocked to see corbin actually climbing up on things and sliding down slides all by himself since he usually just runs straight out of the play area and to the cupcake shop (nice positioning by the way pinkabella cupcakes!). doesnt he looks so grown up!?!
when he was over the play area we walked hand in hand to the elevator and down to the disney store! he loved it there and i cant believe its the first time i've taken him there since we go to that mall often! no marvin the martian spaceship but there was a fun tunnel and a princess castle!
and this awesome movie screen with a table and chairs for kids to color at. 
you can even pick what clips of what movie you want to watch! so buzz obviously.
we hit up the lego store
and had lunch together in the food court. on our way out it was impossible not to drool over people walking out of my favorite frozen yogurt shop (seriously why do i always park by that entrance!) so i scrounged together enough money at the bottom of my diaper bag to get us a small one to share only to pay and find out i had a free five dollar credit! SCORE!
total cost for the fun day out with my little guy: ZERO DOLLARS!

  6. Fun!! My girl refers to the Disney Store as "Daisy's house". She's a kooky one.

  7. Hooray for a free day out! I leave my wallet in the car when we go to the mall to play. It is seriously a money trap.

  10. funnn! he does look so grown up in those photos! whenever i take henry to the soft play area at the mall, i am amazed at what he can accomplish on his own too. sometimes he even gets annoyed that i'm hovering over him, like "mom! let me do my own thing!" i didn't know that the bellvue mall had a disney and lego store! it must be huge!
