July 27 - The Big Mall

We're sleeping in more these days, having a hard time getting going in the mornings. Today we left Watertown, SD and headed to Mall of America. First we drove up to North Dakota and took a quick picture to say that we had been in that state! Then we headed to Minnesota, land of 10,000 lakes. We didn't get to Mall of America until around 4:00 p.m. Even after all of this driving, we're still surprised how close things look on the map, and how far they actually are when you drive.
We shopped until 8:30 and then found a hotel near the mall. We hope to head back for more shopping in the morning and then start driving for Chicago.


  1. lol. Woo-hoo! a mall! I heard it was hurting and had a lot of empty stores. does it?

  2. Looked find to us. Lots of shoppers/lots of stores. We didn't see any stores empty; one place where a store was coming soon.
