Mall of America

Last week, we had a quick trip to Minnesota and North Dakota. The trip was for a family wedding in Bismarck, ND, but we stopped over in Minneapolis so that I could visit a company that is in the same industry as Horst Engineering. We landed at MSP airport, rented a car, and I dropped Debbie and our kids off at the Mall of America. I drove out to Chaska for my shop tour and meeting while the Livingston Family shopped.

LEGO was the big hit. The Lego store was immense. Our son was thrilled. The  mall was just as disorienting as I expected. If it wasn’t for LEGO, I would have been disappointed. The other stores are the same as all of the other stores at any mall in America. The amusement park didn’t amuse me. I was at Quassy a few weeks ago and that was better and outside. Oh well, it was still worth a visit because it is something you should see.

Truthfully, I thought that the impressive MSP airport had more interesting stores, aside from LEGO. I had my best airport meal ever at the French Meadow Bakery Cafe. The menu even identified vegan options, which I have never seen at an airport before. It was fabulous.

With only 24 hours in Minneapolis, we didn’t see much besides the mall, the motel, and the Minnesota Valley Wildlife Refuge.

He is learning the lines. He taught me a new saying after a particularly rugged, technical, and bouncy section. He said, "That was a serious chamois adjuster." #mountainbike #mountainbiking #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad
