Mall of America

Over Father's day weekend the girls & I went on a little road trip with my family. Our destination: Mall of America :-) We drove the 6 1/2 hours (7 1/2 with stopping) to Minnesota to the famous gigantic mall! The girls did so well in the car for such a long period of time; they really surprised me. The mall is absolutely enormous! It is 4 floors of shopping, restaurants, and activities all centered around an indoor amusement park. We had so much fun!! We went to as many stores as we could fit into the three days we were there. I made sure the girls had fun by taking them to the Lego store, The American Girl store, & Brooklyn even had her first trip to

Here are some pictures from our trip....

The girls & I shopping.
Olivia was thrilled to meet "the real Dora the Explorer"
& her best friend Boots!!
The girls love the Wonder Pets, but Brooklyn preferred them at a distance.
Aunt Kate bought them the Wonder Pet capes @ the Mall of America
& they dress-up as these two characters (Olivia is Linny the "ginny pig" as she calls him & Brooklyn is Ming-Ming the duck) all the time!! It's adorable!!
Olivia really enjoyed the amusement park.
Brooklyn & Nana watching Livie on the rides.
Brooklyn with the dog she made @ Build-a-bear with Aunt Kate & I while Olivia went to the amusement park with Aunt Taylor & Uncle Denton.
