Mall of America

When Rhyanne asked Jeff if we could go to Mall of America this weekend, we figured, "why not?"  There were two big football games this weekend, which means we got a hotel room for Friday night instead of Saturday.  So we drove up after work on Friday and hit the mall soon after it opened on Saturday.

Anna took some pictures while we were there.  There's nothing like it in Germany, she said.

The Lego store was really cool.  There were a couple of pictures outside the store, all made with Legos (of course).  The Lego store was kinda overwhelming, but if I had a specific project I wanted to work on, it would be a great place to shop for Legos - you can buy them by color!

Another store I'd never been in before was a Microsoft store.  They had a 3-D printer and a video game.  Jeff played against Anna, and he won.

We ate at Bubba Gump, and Anna and I ate off of the "side dishes" menu, since I don't like seafood and she's a vegetarian.
The server asked us some Forrest Gump trivia at the end of our meal, and Jeff & I had all but one answer.  We have seen that movie quite a few times.

And there was a Peeps store!  Can you believe it?  I had no idea there would be a store for Peeps…  It's just crazy.  There were t-shirts and water bottles, in purple with white, that said "One Tough Chick".  We got them for Rhy since the peep was wearing a Viking helmet, which is her high school mascot, and in her high school colors.

By the time we made it home, it was late and it had been a lot of driving.  That didn't stop the girls though - they went to a friend's "fire party" as Anna called it.  She had forgotten the word for "bonfire".

Fun was had by all.


  1. it's official! You and Jeff are the BEST PARENTS EVER!!! :D
    Can I come live with you???

    1. Aw, thanks! It's not a common occurance that we head off somewhere for the weekend, but we wanted to do something fun with Anna since she's only here for another week.
