Today was the big day. Derek, Abby, Cade and I went to Nickelodeon Universe at the Mall of America. It is only about 10 minutes from Kelli and Eric’s house and we got there shortly after it opened at 10am. The kids both got an unlimited arm band and we got started. Cade liked the Big Rigs and Carousel the best and Abby’s favorites were the carousel, ferris wheel, Balloon Race, Back at the Barnyard Hayride roller coaster, and Wonder Pets Flyboat. Let’s just say that she pretty much liked all of them. We spent the morning riding and then had lunch at the foodcourt. We had McDonald’s and Sabarro. After lunch we went back to riding more rides. There were no lines and we could pretty much get off and right back on if we wanted to. The kids played at the LegoLand and I did some Christmas and birthday shopping for Jonah. The kids reenergized with some Superman icecream and then more rides. I think it was after 4:00 before we left. Cade fell asleep before we were even out of the parking garage. Abby stayed awake and we wanted it that way so that she would go to bed early. We had chicken tacos for supper and enjoyed our last evening with Kelli and Eric.
