so we went to the mall of america

We got the indoor cold weather fever and took the kids to the MOA. It makes me crabby. Every person that tries to walk in front of my stroller gets a firm talking to (in my head). Miles got his very first Bionicle from the LEGO store. He also got a new pair of Vans. No one else got anything.
We usually always walk by the Rainforest Cafe and stop at the mechanical crocodile for the kids. Today there was a guy dressed as a big stuffed animal tree frog. Miyo looked at him nervously before giving him a high five, Miles gave him a very spirited high five and...Murphy. Well, Murphy jumped out of his stroller laughing and squealing and ran at the guy who was not facing him. To get his attention Murphy grabbed his arm and pulled/swiveled the guy to face him. Then he went nuts. I was so in shock I just stood there nervously laughing. The face on it had this big mouth with what can only be described as lips (I didn't know frogs had them). Murphy smacked him first with the left hand on the lower lip then he swung his right and smacked him on the chest. Ben stopped him and put him back in his stroller. I cannot believe how funny it was. The guy just turned to some other kids and acted like it didn't happen. Who knows what his face looked like under there or what he thought of our little meany. All I know is Murphy will protect me from things that mean me no harm.
The picture above is what the guy may have seen coming right before impact.

Too funny. You have to blow up the picture to get the extent of what Murphy's facial reaction was. If I'm getting it straight, he was extremely happy and excited to see the frog until he saw the face.

I think he was still extremely happy while kicking it's butt as well.

That is the most hilarious thing I have ever heard. I can't beleive the guy just pretended it didn't happen.

Hey Kady, Your A** is dirty! (said in an old black lady voice, while parking at the MOA, I don't know how much I need to explain this inside joke, um, well now I am a little uncomfortable. Ha ha (cough) ha. )
