It is always bittersweet on the last day of any trip, short or long.
You want to stay and grab hold of any experience you missed, but your bed at home is always calling your name.
So we did what any good Girl Scout would do???? right? We took Old Tyme Photos! Don’t we make good saloon girls?
Then we headed downstairs to the Sea Life Aquarium.
We got to see jellyfish.
We walked under sharks. Eeek!
And saw many other wonders of the sea.
Now we are home sweet home.
Awesome trip, amazing experience!
And I am glad I got to share it with my friends and daughters!
The girls started out the day by deciding to forgo the China Ann McClain concert because of the crowd.
When we finally got motivated we decided to go Nickelodeon Universe in the Mall
First we were pulled into the Airbrush Tattoo booth, because well ‘like mother like daughter!’ Brae’s is a hummingbird and flower.
Gillian’s is a fierce tiger! ROAR!
Then on to the rides. My kids apparently are the opposite of me. They love thrill rides like roller coasters and Detonator-type rides.
That is the Spongebob Roller Coaster, which my oldest rode twice. I am sure she would have kept going if I had let her.
Then we did some old-fashioned carnival games before we headed back to the hotel. Six hours of running around an amusement park in a mall is tiring!
On our way out we ran into the Brownie Elf and some of the Daisy Petals. This is Brae and I with one of them.
After that we went back to the hotel, ordered in Chinese takeout and then went swimming. We were all super tired, but in a completely awesome kind of way!

Had an excellent trip to the Mall of America with one of my BFFs and my daughters!
We drove into Minnesota on Friday.
We got up early on Saturday to see the Birthday Celebration of the Girl Scouts at the Mall of America.
Did you know that the organization is 100 years old?
There were more girls than ever imagined! Over 50,000 attended!
We did a few of the Girl Scout activities but the girls were quickly overwhelmed with the amount of people.
So we decided to ride the light rail downtown.
