Vacation Day

We are telling our usual Saturday Morning Routine to bite it (farmer's market, garage sales, house cleaning) and heading to the Mall of America for a day of family vacation.

We ate lunch here at home and packed a backpack full of healthy snacks (banana bread, apples, trail mix of almonds/walnuts/raisins/craisins, and water bottles). We'll bite the bullet and eat at the feeding frenzy also known as a mall food court for supper. Nothing about our day will be "supporting local", except for the fact that MOA is local-ish.

We are going to go on rides, see the butterfly garden, a maybe catch a movie.

We haven't done a "family day" like this- just for the heck of it- at ALL in my memory...

Hope your Saturday has a spontaneous aspect as well!

I remember taking a family weekend to visit the MOA when it first opened - we trekked over from the Milwaukee area. I think I was in early high school? (Can't remember the year.) That place is insane! Hope it's a great day. :-)

Have a great time! I haven't been to the Mall of America in years.

I was just at the MOA yesterday.
Where is the butterfly garden around here?
