Gia and I had a nice day together, as we went shopping at Crossroads Mall in Portage and then off to the mall's play land for Gia!

We stopped at the CD store, grabbed a slurpee and headed to the kids' section by the food court.

Daddy gave Gia $3 (which she calls tickets), and we played in the kids' play room and then went on some rides.

In the winter, the mall is a great (or sometimes dangerous, if you like to shop) place to escape the cold in greater Kalamazoo.

Check out my cute squishy having a blast at our local mall!

What are your favorite local activities to do with your kids during the winter?
