Nickolodeon Universe

We had such a blast Saturday at Nickelodeon Universe! The Ronald McDonald House has free unlimited use wristbands for their guests, so we decided to take the kids. It would be our last hurrah as a family before Daylon starts chemo and we become completely sheltered for the next year. Plus, why not!?! It's free!The theme park is in the Mall of America on the ground floor and the other four floors above it are opened up to make room for the roller coasters, etc. with a skylight as a ceiling way up top. The kids loved it!

There weren"t too many things that an EB kid could do, but we were able to find a few rides Daylon could play on! The kids played on race cars, rode the big swings, played in Lego town, flew on the back of Blue (Blues Clues), even rode the Fairly Odd Parents roller coaster but our favorite was the "butterfly exhibit". We all got a kick out of being in a tent with hundreds of "friendly" butterflies. Sometimes pictures speak louder than words, so we'll let them do the talking!

It's on her hip

Fun stuff, right?! Have a great night!
