Mommy and Me Monday

Rainy Sunday, last day of school vacation, and we decided to take a spur of the moment to a great mall in Massachusetts.

I’ve been dying to take the Mad Hatter to the Rainforest Cafe, and this was the main reason for our hour long journey.

After some shopping (Mommy and Daddy got nothing, MH managed to wrack up some awesome goodies from the Lego store, a mini-wardrobe from Gymboree, some loot from the Disney store, including The Princess and the Frog DVD, and some adorable little sandals from Nordstrom), we headed to dinner.


Bonus: Sweetheart and Poppy came along for the trip, and the mall wasn’t too far from Uncle D, so he met us for dinner too – impromptu family dinner!

At dinner, when the lights started flashing and the animals started moving and making noise, we didn’t know where to look first!


And the flashing cup our lemonade came in was way cool. (we kept shutting it off to “conserve energy in the rainforest”.


Three generations of happy ladies (yep, that’s my mommy and me!):


A very happy Sweetheart and Poppy:


And one little girl who had a great time, especially waving her “sparkler” from dessert around in front of “that strong man” Atlas!


While I would definitely recommend having low expectations for the quality of the food (pricey and lacking a bit in flavor), we had a fabulous time and will definitely go back again for another jungle adventure!

Cute post! I love the Rainforest Cafe...but agree with you! The food IS pricey and not very good. The kids always have a great time though, so it is worth it (;

What a fun, impromptu trip!

Bummer about the food, but it seems like you still enjoyed yourselves.
