Today was my second mother's day and we had a fun filled day with family! This morning we slept in and got ready to go over to the Mall of America. We played a little around the house and left around 1:00. We wanted to wait for the 50,000 plus people to leave the MOA after the Race for the Cure. We got there and were pleased to find the mall dead. It was so great, we walked around all three floors of the mall and then headed to Underwater Adventures. Bennett was so excited to see all of the "phish!" Everywhere he turned they had more fish and he was crazy about all of them. He loved the turtles, sting rays and sharks as well. We worked on saying several new words as well, though Turtle was the only other one that was successful!
After we left the MOA, we headed over to the airport and caught the 3:30 takeoff of the 747 to Toyko. Travis used to see this plane take off everyday when he worked a VK and today we finally saw it take off from the airport. Awesome sight to see. We are hoping that all of this exposure to the planes will get B excited for his flight at the end of the month to Atlanta.
To end the night, we headed to Champps for dinner and ended the night with ice cream at Dairy Queen with Nana and Papa. Great ending to a great Mother's Day!
