So a movie is being filmed in our town. That’s not such an unusual thing, since apparently this state gives great tax breaks to production companies to come and film here. But it’s still kinda cool to drive by a place and know that at that moment someone famous could be there. Yesterday I took BB to a mostly empty mall that is being used as a set because, well I was curious as heck and I used the excuse of “needing” to look for a new stainless steel pan that could only be found at Bed Bath and Beyond, which is one of the three (yep, count them THREE) still operating stores in that mall. I had heard that you can walk around the mall and take a gander at the fake store fronts. It was pretty neat to see all these closed down and empty stores packed to the gills with merchandise. I was feeling a little nervous about taking our my camera at first, but after speaking with a couple (okay, three) lonely security guards, I realized they didn’t care if I took a couple of pics. I’d like to go back this week, when I was told there would be more going on, and take pictures of the once defunct and abandoned food court now turned thriving mall hang out.

Today we had a blast! We went to the local amusement park with our homeschool co-op and spent two hours riding, laughing and getting soaked! The park was only open to “school” groups today, so the lines were extra short, though it was still pretty darned busy. BB’s favorite thing was…Uh…Well, everything! I was able to leave him with a friend while a small group of us went off to ride the big wooden coaster, so I had fun too! One of the best things about my life right now is that I’m in a wonderful, supportive group and I feel safe to leave my little one with them and they feel safe leaving their kids with me. I wish there were more pics, but we had so much fun that I forgot I had my camera on me.
