We continued to drive throughout the night, by midmorning, we in Minneapolis, Minnesota. We decided to stop for the rest of the day/night and stay in a hotel! We found a room and checked in, but we had several hours to kill before we could actually get into the room. So we headed to Loring Park downtown for Belgium Brewing's Tour De Fat. Hubby had heard of the festival and was excited to get the chance to go.
|It was a wacky time. Environmentally friendly with a carnival atmosphere and, of course, beer!|
We stayed for a few hours and then headed for our room for a much needed shower. Hubby and son went for a swim in the pool while daughter and I read and showered. We wanted to have one of Minneapolis' famous Juicy Lucy burgers, but the waits were way too long. Hubby suggested we head to the Mall of America to eat. We had a great dinner at Famous Dave's, but by now #1 son was almost insane. He went into excitement overdrive at the splendor that was the Mall of America. We hit the LEGO store, of course. I counted myself lucky to get out of there after spending only $41.00.

#1 decided he LOVED the Mall of America and wants to go back there for a vacation. We all were exhausted after our long drive and busy day, so we headed back to the hotel to crash.
