Arrived at Bloomington, MN and the Mall of America yesterday for our big Spring Break trip that I’ve decided to call “Shop Hard: Because You Can’t Take It With You.” Audrey bought the American Girl doll of the year, McKenna, with her own hard earned money and Mike and I ended up spending lots more of OUR hard earned money on her, too. 

We also dined at the American Girl Bistro for lunch today which was surprisingly good! We each got an appetizer and lunch entree for $15. My choices were pitas with spinach-artichoke dip for a starter and roasted beet and goat cheese salad for my entree. Audrey went with mini pretzel bites and spaghetti with meatballs. McKenna even had a little booster chair to sit in so she could join us during our meal and got a little teacup at her place.

We’re back at the hotel right now with sore feet & legs and no energy! We’ll probably head back to the Mall again tomorrow but check out the Sea Life Aquarium instead of submersing ourselves in the American Girl world again…one can only hope!
