The kids thought yesterday and today were some of the best ever – between LEGO Discovery Center yesterday and the Mall of America today! Daniel and Nathan had watched the “Timberland Twister” roller coaster on the computer a couple of years ago and Daniel had remembered that it was at the Mall of America in Bloomington, just south of Minneapolis, MN. It was only 10 minutes out of our way so we stopped in at the “biggest mall in the world” (I'd be interested in how the West Edmonton Mall and the Mall of America would compare!). We told the kids they could each go on one ride – and then we thanked God when another family gave us their leftover tickets and it turned out to be “Toddler Tuesday” - half price tickets! There were no line-ups and all the kids (& Daniel!) got to go on 3 rides each. Nathan is also much braver now after having climbed to the top of the aerial ropes course. Here are some pictures:

It seemed like a long drive after that to Fargo, 4 1/2 hours away but Paddington Bear on CD entertained us all and Jeremy and I had a nap which helped! Tomorrow we should make it to Estevan, SK!
