MSP {lego land + the zoo}

We snuck away last weekend for one last hooray before school starts.  Seriously...can you believe school starts this week?  We drove a couple hours north to Minneapolis.

MSP never disappoints, and we had a great time once again.  We left shortly after lunch on Friday and arrived just in time to get checked in at our hotel and head over to Mall of America. 
 We didn't bother packing a stroller because it would take up too much space in the car and we just planned on renting them.  Unfortunately, they were all out at the mall.  Carrying a 32-pound 2-year old around America's largest mall wasn't exactly a good time!
We had one mission for the mall and that was Lego land.

I have to say that I expected a little more, but that was ok.  Landon was in awe and was excited to pick out a new set.  Surprisingly, the prices weren't too bad. 

After perusing through the mall, we headed over to one of my favorite places - IKEA.  I would have loved to spend hours there, but leisurely shopping with three boys just ain't gonna happen.  After a quick walk through, the boys were starving and all the snacks I had packed were consumed.  We decided to head back to the hotel and order some pizza.

I was a little nervous about the boys sleeping in the same bed at the hotel, and even more nervous about how Asher would sleep without his crib.  They must have both been tired because shortly after devouring our pizza, they were both out.

We woke up refreshed in the morning and after enjoying some breakfast, we headed out to the zoo.  There was so much to see and we all had a blast.  We left around lunch time and headed pack home.  Here are just a few photos from our time at the Minnesota Zoo.  Thanks for sticking around and catching up with us!
