Day Two-Minnesota

January 30, 2007 at 5:20 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 3 Comments

So we slept in a little, woke up, and watched some cable again as we came to a half awake state. We kept watching the TLC channel and Discovery so we could see Mythbusters, and house flipping/repairing/decorating shows. It was heaven. Then we went down for the complementary breakfast. Yummmmm….donuts, muffins, and pastries. Junk food and cable without kids trying to eat my food and begging for cartoons as they jump on the bed, and me. We had coffee, and took more to the room. Coffee good. More cable as we packed. I checked in on the family and they were having a great time! calling-home.jpgThen we headed out to a store I have never been to before, IKEA. Wow! That place was awesome! Looking at the displays gave Mrs. M and I all kinds of ideas and the prices were so good! The people in the store, customers and staff, were all so friendly. It was a fun experience. After that, we went to the mall for lunch and more shopping. Now, I don’t like malls. Mall shopping is not fun for me, but this is more like a landmark one must visit. The Mall of America is HUGE. In fact, if they think you may not have fun, you may have to visit their own fully operational police department complete with booking center and jail.untitledcop-smile.jpg It has an indoor theme park. moa2.jpgWe bought some postcards, magnets, and little toys for the kids. Eventually, we realized we had to leave. We piled into the car and pointed it towards Wisconsin. After a quick trip through downtown to see the beautiful architecture and to look at places where the divine Mrs. M and her hubby, Mr. Funny, had links to. It was beautiful. We then drove over the mighty Mississippi. This time it looked so different, I wonder why? O-Yeah! The freaking snow and ice! I have never thought of the Mississippi covered in ice! Though a quick “out the window” shot, you get the idea.icy-mississippi.jpg The ride was smooth, with a few more landmarks passed along the way. Gas stations visited, and the best darn microwaved frozen bean burrito eaten in the car, we arrived to her beautiful new home, and her wonderful family. I had a great room with all the amenities! A good night’s sleep and we would be ready for day 3.

  1. Sounds like you’re having fun!

    I have lived in Minnesota for 9 1/2 years and have never been to the mall. Imagine that!

  2. Were you really that happy to get out of jail! 🙂

  3. Glad you had a great time.
