I met a blogger!..and Bennett busts a move!

This week I had the privledge of meeting a fellow blogger and her adorable son! You might know them. Rachel (from and then, she {snapped}) and her babe, Charlie. We live 45-hour away from each other so we met in the middle at Southcenter Mall (aka Westfield shopping center).

We had originally planned on meeting at the Nordstrom Cafe, but last minute I called Rachel and asked if she'd rather go to The Rainforest Cafe. I thought it would be fun for the kids. And it was, for Bennett anyway. He LOVED it. But poor charlie, he was so scared! Every 10-12 minutes, there's a "rainstorm" and all of the jungle animals come "alive" and make noises and stuff. Charlie was so scared of the gorilla's. Poor guy!!! Needless to say, I felt bad for suggesting the place. So we ate real quick, packed up and went to the kids play area!

And of course, I had to do a little shopping while I was there.
{please excuse the quality of all of these photos, I really didn't bother with bringing my SLR or editing}

  Awesome actually meeting Rachel and Charlie! I see them every day on their blog, I love being able to put a REAL person to the photos!!

That's always fun. I wish some bloggers lived closer to me, but it seems that everyone is quite a ways from me. :-( I'm glad you guys had fun!! Little Bennett is just too cute!

How funny! Bennett cracks me up. We hung out at the Rainforest Cafe while we were in Seattle, too. Noah wasn't a big fan, but it was neat.
