Here are a few shots of Sunday and Monday, our first Staycation days spent in our town and then a few hours at the Mall of America, because what Minnesota vacation can be had without that?, after picking Mom up at the airport.
|Grandma and M play the bongos at the Best Buy MOA|
|They didn't heed the "Please Don't Feed"|
|Aunt L and N play at the Legos store at the MOA|
|We kind of took over the joint|
|My in-laws amazed our server with their Bubba Gump trivia knowledge!|
|M was amazed only with the ping pong paddle|
|Okay, and Forrest's shoes!|
|Cool boy N, Grandpa, and M|
|N was quite snuggly and silly with my sunglasses!|
|exploring the boat before we lift anchor|
|Don't kiss me, Aunt sheeshee!|
|Boo hoo! N spent a bit of time on the deck howling about something - like he can't jump overboard.|
|Upstairs, downstairs! The boys can talk Grandpa into anything!|
The loudest crack of thunder any of us have ever heard rattled the trees and our ears! We all dropped low to the ground as bright lightning flashed all around us for a few seconds. Then we grabbed our kids and our cameras and rushed inside to watch the downpour! We were a bit rattled and had to watch an episode of "Imagination Movers" to take our minds off the fact that we had been nearly killed by lightning!
