Dear Family and Friends,
After we said our goodbyes to the Mickelsons we headed south for our two hour drive to Minneapolis. One thing that Cannon said he would love to see in Minnesota was the Mall of America.
We had a couple of hours to spare and we let Cannon pick what he wanted to see and do.
He knew exactly what he wanted to do.......Lego store and Nickelodian Land.
Here are some photos.
From about the third floor. Cannon looks over the balcony at the giant structures made out of legos.
And then there was Nickelodeon Land which covers the atrium floor. HUGE.
It includes roller coasters, a log flume and many, many rides.
And then it was time to turn in the rental car and taxi to the St. Paul train station. We boarded the train just in time to put on our jammies and jump in bed.
The next day Cannon befriended a cute little boy. They entertained each other quite a while.
Also, there were the new legos to play with.
And, of course listening to an audio book helps pass the time.
Mimi and Poppi loved looking out the window of the train and seeing the heartland of the USA as we rolled along.
After another nights rest, we arrived at the Pasco, WA train station at 5:30am. All of Cannon's family came to greet him and welcome him back home. Here is mama bear hugging her cub.
Family is so important...I know Cannon will have great memories of this trip.
