Mall of America
Mall of America opened up in 1992. I remember reading a piece about it and thought it would be a great place to visit. I am so glad we made the effort.
The place has 4 levels to it. All kinds of food imaginable and stores I never heard of. they did not have J Jill but when I wentt walking around I found a sign that said they would be there in the fall of this year. There is an amusement park in the center of the mall with rides galore. We watched the ferris wheel go round and the merry-go-round with little babies. They were having a great time. The ferris wheel is suspended in the air above the entrance to the play area.
Then there were the Legos. Lots and lots of legos, There were all kinds of "work" stations with containers of legos where the kids could put together anything they wanted to. We just had a great time watching and walking through the mall. All these pictures of characters are Legos. They were so cool!
We finally got back on the road just before rush hour to head back west again. We are now on Rt 94 (still) just before exit 67. We stopped and shut off the engine. You know how after you have driven for a long time and you just stretch and get all the kinks out. Well Joe was doing that and said that he was glad we were done for the night. Well, I said that I agreed and I was the one doing all the stretching and twisting. Joe just looks at me and I start laughing, He was wondering why I was doing all the stretching when he was doing all the driving. (it was funny in the processz).
We are in for the night.
Sorry for the screw-ups, I am still getting the hang of this.
