Mall of America, 2010

So, I was going to make a whole blog about this trip, but I figured it fit better here since it was just a weekend trip.
On Saturday morning, bright and early, which we all know I'm so good at, we headed off on our journey. Not going to lie, I slept most of the way there. So, we got to our hotel, checked in and headed off to the Mall.
When we got to the mall it was just exciting to be out of the car!! Now, if you know me, I like to tackle things with a plan, so going into the mall to "wander" was pretty stressful for me. At first we just kind of walked around the center where the amusement park is and then went off to have lunch at Johnny Rockets. While at lunch we came up with a plan: start spiraling our way from the top floor down on day 1 and then on day 2 hit up all the rides, Build-a-Bear and anything we may have missed.
So we set off on our journey. The mall was, well, a mall. But the people watching was pretty interesting and amusing. We did some shopping, although, not too much since we have all the stores here. There were some unique things, and some things I don't think I would have imagined but, it was entertaining.
That night we went to Outback Steakhouse for dinner where my future sister-in-law discovered my hate for the word "Moist" (I cringe as I type it...) and had fun with that. From there it was back to the hotel where homework was done and reading and relaxing.
The next morning we set off for the mall again to hit up all the rides. We started off tame but built our way up to some of the more adventurous rides! My favorite would have to be either the Fairly Odd Parents ride or the Sponge Bob plunge ride.
On our way back to the hotel from the mall we stopped at Sonic for dinner which was an amusing experience in and of itself. But none the less, we ate and headed back to the hotel to get some rest so we could drive home the next day!
