Mall of America

We had a long weekend for the 4th of July and decided to take a trip down to the Mall of America.  It is a little over 2 hours from our hotel, so we got up early and headed down to St. Paul, Minnesota.

The drive down was all freeway so nothing exciting and, of course, we got lost once we hit St. Paul but other than that it was a fun time.  Minnesota does not believe in wasting money on road signs so there is not a lot of warning before it is time to turn, but we managed to find the Mall.

The mall is 4 stories with more stores than I could ever name.  Everything from old favorites:

to somethings that were quite unique. 
This store specialized in ladies clothing from the 50's and 60's era. 

I can just see Doris Day dancing around in these dresses.

There is a whole section of this mall dedicated to entertainment.  The Lego Store with thousands and thousands of Legos just waiting for you to use your imagination and create something. 

And there are many examples of possibilities to get your imagination working. 

A knight in shining armor.

A Transformer

A Death Star

and a bigger than life Woody, from Toy Story.

In case Legos are not your style this Toy Store is big enough and is sure to have something for everyone.

The Rainforest Cafe is a really fun inter-active place for youngsters and oldsters alike.

What mall would be complete without a full sized amusement park. 
This place has all sorts of roller coaster rides.

Yes, the whole park is inside the mall.

They even have a carousel.

That is just a very brief look at the Mall of America.  We walked around 3 of the 4 floors and my poor feet are very tired but it was a fun day and I am very thankful we had this opportunity.
