Solon's 3rd Birth"DAY"....

Monday, August 20, 2012
We were in Minneaplis on Solon's actual 3rd Birthday (August 7th) because my cousins from Texas were visiting. SO I thought what better way to celebrate than go to the Mall of America amusement park to ride rides. Solon LOVES Wonder Pets and there is a Fly Boat ride there - so that was our first stop....
Luckily it was not too busy since we arrived right before it opened and were first in line (don't mess with this mama and helping to make her son's dreams come true ;) Only a few of us could ride or it was too heavy - guess it is not for adults...Solon was not sure at first BUT...

...LOVED it. We rode this ride about 6 times and he could NOT get enough. I have to say it was really fun!

Next up was the little kids roller coaster....
...and the zippy cars...
....Vera even took her 1st amusement ride but it was a little too "zippy" for her so we took her on the train after that...
...she also had lots of people willing fighting to cuddle her...
...Solon even strategically luckily won the ball toss game and got the biggest prize and won a Superman and Batman doll...he insisted on giving Batman to his buddy Evan! Everyone was screaming, it was quite the scene...
His favorite Wonder Pet Linny...as a special surprise, I let him pick out one thing in the theme park store, it took him about 10 seconds to choose...we never let him get things at the store, so this was a real, special treat ;)
After the rides we went to The Rainforest Cafe. The kids loved watching all the animals& sitting through a thunderstorm...that place has got it all figured out in how to nickel and dime you but it was the experience that made it worth it - we don't need to go back for a long time though!
After a BUSY day of lots of ride, lunch and a little shopping...we headed home to have a cake "Mickey themed" and presents...
Vera was a little tuckered out...
Solon was blessed to have lots of family come to his party!
...and even more blessed in the present department...
Luckily we got it all in the car! It was a great birth"day" full of fun and memories! Thanks buddy for letting us share your special day full of fun...
