S: Mall of America ~ Spring Break 2001
FC: Mall of America Bloomington, MN Spring Break 2011
1: We decided to take a trip to Mall of America during Spring Break. The road trip time was 5.5 hours long and we had plenty to do along the way with our IPhones, IPads, ITouch's, and movies! We left on Saturday morning and headed north where it was even colder than what we were leaving behind in Algonquin. I thought this was supposed to be "SPRING" break. Oh well! And .....we're off......!
3: Room 560 - not too shabby...although the heat was a factor. Upon entering it was too hot. One call to the front desk and we found out that there was no controlling the heat. OH NO for Mommy. Thanks to Housekeeping, we were able to regulate it with our Lasko Box Fan! :) And of course, the occasional cracking of the window to get fresh air. Too funny! | Ana at the Karate Center! | Dad's bed - where the kids tucked him in each night!
4: Nickelodeon Adventures | Keaton and Ana 7 Benton Ct.
6: Minnesota Timberwolves and the Boston Celtics
7: Well, we got the idea to go to an NBA game. We found tickets on Craigslist and prayed that they were legit. We held our breath at the door and all practically squealed when the fella scanned them and they worked! Hooray! After worrying all day, we could finally relax and enjoy the game! Ahwwoooooooooooo(howling)!
8: Gomer had some fun at the NIKE store! Oh GOMER, you never cease to make us laugh! | GOMER 3-28-11
9: Sanrio Hello Kitty Store! Ana was so excited to shop. She ended up choosing a Hello Kitty wallet that she fell in love with! We were so happy for her!
10: Perkins Cafe We woke up after a great night at the Timberwolves game and headed out for a great breakfast at Perkins. It was yummy.
11: Eggs, Bacon Orange Juice YUM!
12: Our little Turkey Subs!
13: The hotel pool was empty one morning and we were able to spend a couple hours there with the whole place to ourselves. The hot tub must have seated 30 people. | Dad was able to get in some good rounds of Turkey Sub with the kids. They love that. And one time they had a real turkey sub join them.
16: The Ghostly Gangplank! Keaton climbed this feat with no problem! All the way to the top and out to the edge of the gangplank! | Keaton
17: Great Rides! Ana especially loved going on the Hayride Rollercoaster with Dad!
18: Ana meets her hero:! SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS
19: Crazy Cars Need we say more?
20: We were fascinated(well, Mom was) with this Man in a box set up in the middle of the mall. He was in the box living a transparent life for 30 days trying to lead a healthier life. Humandoing.com
21: This is gonna be fun!! Up we go!!!! | ooohhhh...my stomach... KEATON HELP! | Get me off here! | This ride is terrible! How come those little kids are having fun? ~ Ana, age 7
22: On our last night, Chad took this toy glider from Arbys, and flew it from the top floor down to the kids on the first floor. Creatively enough, when the kids wanted Chad to do it again, they put the glider in the elevator, pressed 8, and sent it back up to Chad! Very smart little Turkey Subs we have! :) | The MOA goods: Xbox NBA 2K11 Twinkle Toes by Sketchers
