Well, we decided to go and I’m glad that we did. It was a nice (although long) day. Most of the mom’s were friendly. All the little girls had a blast. The had a jumbo video screen set up and they were showing HSM 1 & 2. There were several vendors offering freebies. We got free Vitamin water and regular water, Turkey Hill ice cream, Herr’s pretzels and chips, and a local radio station was giving out frisbees and stuff.
The event staff as the Rockvale Outlet mall were very friendly, helpful, and efficient.
DD was very happy and Vanessa was beautiful. Before she began signing she took a moment to say hello and thank them all for coming. She tried to say a little something to each of the kids even though it was about 10 seconds that they were there with her.
She was, unfortunately, a little late and she took a short break in the middle, but they moved people through very quickly. She smiled a lot and signed whatever people brought. She did not get through the entire crowd. I would estimate there were about 5,000 people there.
I am happy to have done this with my DD.
I will post pics as soon as I upload and resize them. I think I got some good ones.
