This past Tuesday we all took a ride into the cities to spend the day at the Mall of America! Shopping, eating, walking...(oh my! haha!)...visit to the aquarium (which included going behind the scenes and seeing even more...sadly, no pictures allowed), mini-gulf, smoothies and ice cream. We had a blast!
Busy boy! Good thing there is lots of room to run around.
For those of you who know the Garland side of me you know how much we love animals. For those of you who have not experienced that side as much Garland = Anything Nature! Walking into the aquarium even brought some feeling of being homesick (snorkeling and ocean time very much missed) to some of us. Josh has always been the King of the Animals in our family, but I think Kahla takes the cake for LOVING sharks! Seriously! LOVES THEM!

|Maybe a little too excited to see the sharks...haha (and yes...the shark picture above is also from Kahla!)|
|Grabbing a snack while everyone else had to wait...hehe|
|I don't know if you can tell just how big this Lego Transformer is, but it is at least 2 1/2 stories tall.|
|Don't worry, Eli got very excited for all of you!|
I could not help but think of Liam as soon as I saw this WALL of Lego! The wall is huge!
|Had to add this picture...they are just too cute!|
|Shop 'till you drop!|
|The trip home was a little rough for the e monster, but thanks to Uncle Awesome there were plenty of laughs.|
|I think he wasn't very happy to be strapped back in his car seat after finding the jackpot of snacks. Sorry Eli...those aren't for you.|
|Got to love Minnesota!|
