Things I've Learned: Mall of America is Awesome!

I'm not a mall person. At all. My attempts at shopping in a mall kind of look like this: oh look a pretty dress, step into store, ears start bleeding from loud music, headache takes over, too much to look at, then run far, far away. Call me a grandma, I don't care. Malls and I aren't the best of friends. 

Oh, but the Mall of America... *sigh*
Okay people, there was an aquarium in the mall. An aquarium!! It wasn't a little dinky fish tank either. The Mall of America doesn't mess around!
What could get better than an aquarium in a mall, you ask? An Amusement park!
 
When I turned the corner and saw this man-made garden of Eden, I'm pretty sure my heart stopped. I even got Rion to ride a roller coaster with me. Now I know that doesn't seem like a big deal... but it is. He is all like, I don't like roller coasters. And I'm all like, oh you will. I was right. 
Those awesome statues up there? Yea they're made of legos.
Mall of America- you're okay in my book.

You're too funny! You don't like malls you like amusement parks haha. I went to the Mall of America as a kid and I have to say I planned my attack for months, only to be thwarted by unsurfaced love of legos. We pretty much spent the whole day there haha. So many memories

Daaang! I didn't know about the aquarium. I have never been but it is definitely on my to-do list. Maybe I will convince my boyfriend to make the long drive with me this summer. How fun :]
