Our first view of the Mall of America.

We were slow to get up today after enjoying a great meetup with Alyssa, Bill, and Mike.  That meant we missed breakfast at the hotel.  No big deal, we didn't feel we missed much.  So we slowly got ourselves ready and went down for the shuttle bus to the Mall.

We rented a wheelchair so I could get around better and safer than trying to hobble on my walker.  We then walked into the center area, which is a super large amusement park for kids.  And there were plenty of kids there screaming and having a good time. 

Then we began making our way around each level of the mall.  We had a map that showed the location of the stores which helped a little.  Now we weren't there to really do much shopping so just a straight line aound the level didn't take too long and we moved up to the next level.  We did go into a few shops but only to browse. We ate at the food court on the third level north. 

After making our way back to the hotel we relaxed away the late afternoon.  Okay, I'll admit it. I took a nap!

Dinner this evening was at the Denny's Restaurant which is attached to our hotel and Alyssa joined us again tonight.  My wife and I had a senior grilled chicken meal while Alyssa ate a large breakfast meal and shared some of it with us.  We sat an talked for quite awhile and I hated to call it an evening when we left.
