We met him! Last week the girls and I met the guy in the big red shoes, Ronald McDonald himself! I'm 28 years old, and this was the first time I'd ever met Ronald. So the girls and I were all equally excited! When we showed up at McDonald's, we weren't sure what to expect. We didn't know if Ronald would just shake our hands and say hello, sit down and chat over some McNuggets, or what. But he ended up doing a whole awesome magic/learning show for all the kids. It was so fun!
During his show, Ronald emphasized three things: imagination, reading and sharing. He encouraged kids to use their imaginations to play and make believe anything they want! He also encouraged reading and visiting your local library to discover all different kinds of books. And sharing. Because when you share with others, everybody wins.
Ronald also did a lot of magic tricks that wowed me as much as the kids. He was pretty smooth!
Ronald also handed out paper smiles, played with the kids in the Play Place, and answered any questions their little hearts desired. My girls asked him where he lived. "McDonaldland." In case any of you were wondering!
We had a genuinely great time. My girls talked about Ronald for the rest of the day... and are still talking about him! "He was so cool!" They kept saying.
And I have to agree!
