Barbie Dreamhouse experience

One of the benefits of living in the home of WalMart headquarters is that lots of events come here.  Today, that event was the Barbie dreamhouse experience.  I didn't tell the girls where we were going and when we pulled up they were so excited.  A life size barbie dream house that you could go inside!  We had to wait in line to get in for a while but we entertained ourselves.  
We posed for pictures with Barbie's poodle
 We drank water with our hand on our hip and repeatedly said "it's so hot out here...how long is this going to take?"
 And we finally made it inside.  About 30 minutes later.  

We got to go inside, get dressed up and walk down the Barbie runway.  Julianne was all about it.  Ate it up.
Work it girl!

While Julianne was taking her turn, Claire was taking her sweet time putting on her boa and a woman who was in line behind us let her little girl cut in front of Claire.  Even though she knew that Julianne and Claire were together.  After standing out in the sun for 30 minutes in the 90 degree heat and trying to help both girls get ready at the same time, I was a little annoyed.  Then, she wasn't paying attention and started walking backwards and stepped on Claire's foot.  Hard.  Claire burst into tears and so this is what her picture looks like:
I was so mad.  I wanted to step on that mom's foot!  She couldn't wait 10 seconds for Claire to put on her boa (10 seconds makes a big difference when you've waited in line for 30 minutes).  Then stepped on her foot.  She was all "oh, sorry".  I really wanted to say "if you had a bit more patience and wouldn't have cut in front of us that wouldn't have happened.  Thanks for ruining my kids picture and runway experience."  But I didn't.  I gave her a dirty look instead.  Yes, I'm very mature that way.

We made our way outside where they had some more fun activities.

Like face painting!
 It cheered Claire up after the foot incident
 They would have stayed and played with this Lego barbie house all day.  But I was melting so we had to go.
 Overall, it was kind of miserable for me.  But the girls were happy and that's all that matters.
