One day both my daughter's asked if they could go to the Mall of America. It was two days after Christmas. No biggie right? It is only 17 miles from me. So off we go and when we got onto the exit for the mall (there is 2 of them) we sat literally for an hour and 20 minutes just to get into the mall! We were crawling! The girls could have walked there in 5 minutes, but I wasn't letting them out on a big ole ramp.
So then I remembered Chrissie asking for pictures of the mall so I figured I could at least snap away while I had to drive around it to drop the girls and get out again lol. My girls were like "mom you look like a tourist!!"
The rest of these ended up upload backwards but I just snapped away as I drove around the mall. The huge Ikea is right across the street from the mall also. See police even have to direct traffic there. Personally I think it is overrated, but that is because it is a mall very close to me lol! The next time I go shopping there I will MAKE sure to bring my camera and again look like a tourist. Honestly the inside is crazy, the stuff in it is crazy. I guess I don't appreciate it as much as other's would who have never been there because I do NOT think it is fun to have to walk for 45 minutes from one side to the other if the two places we need to go are on opposite sides of the mall lol!
