Last Saturday Maddy & I met up with June & Mei Mei at a local community center pool. There was a very nice indoor pool with a fun kids play area. Here are a few photos-

Today Maddy & I ventured out to the Mall of America (or 'The Mall to The America' as Maddy calls it) for Toddler Tuesday. It was a special day because one of her favorite cartoons were featured there- Kai Lan from the show Ni Hao Kai Lan on Nick Jr. (http://www.nickjr.com/shows/ni-hao-kai-lan/index.jhtml)
They had a character dressed up as Kai Lan & the young lady that does the voice of Kai Lan also came out for a while & read a story to the kids. Maddy wasn't quite sure what to think of the big full life Kai Lan, but she did give her a hug.
Some of the other Red Thread kids came & many were decked out in their Kai Lan wear. We also got to meet one of the newest additions to the group, Olivia.
One of the best moments of the day was when we were walking back to the car & the young lady who does Kai Lan (Jade-Lianna) was walking around with her mom & a friend and they came up to Maddy and asked her if she enjoyed the show and how old she was. It was a fun day, here are some pictures:

We got together at someone's house a couple of week's ago with our Red Thread Friends. One of the families live on Forest Lake & graciously opened their home to us. Even though it was a little cold for water activities that day, we all still had a really fun time. Some of the girls didn't mind the cold at all & still braved swimming.
