Mall of America visit

A year and half ago, I met a girl online who was much like myself – stay at home mom, loved fitness, lived in the middle of no where – we had a lot in common!  LOL.  Anyway, after a year and half of talking via Facebook, we finally had a chance to meet yesterday when her family came to Minneapolis on a little family vacation.  They live in Saskatchewan, Canada, so this was quite the trek for them.  I’m glad they came cuz it was so fun to meet finally!   Anyway, Glenda and Wayne have 3 boys – Daniel, Josh and Andrew.  Dylan and the boys hit it off right way and had a good time on the rides.  I wasn’t so sure that Dylan would go on the rides because he is often scared of stuff like that – but as you can see – he got over his fears and had an AWESOME time.

Avery even got to ride on a couple of rides!  She had no qualms about going on the rides and was quite pissy with me when she DIDN’T get to go on them.  Next time, Avos, next time.

After a few rides, we ate at Tucci Benucch (obviously!) and took some pics to commemorate our meeting!  Glenny’s mama made the journey with them as well.

What kind of fitness freak meet up would it be without a trip to Lululemon?!  Avery sat very nicely while we looked around.  She was actually kinda mad when we were done b/c they had some real good reads there!

She did locate Miss Barre B. Strong at the checkout tho and now she is quite mad that she doesn’t have a barbie doll of her own!  Someone will have to rectify that!

While the ladies were at Lulu, the boys went back on the rides.  Wayne was kind enough to let Dylan use his wristband since we were out of points on our wristband.  Thanks Wayne!  He had so much fun with your boys!

When we got back home, Eric had put the training wheels on Dylan’s old bike for Avery to try.  The tricycle we had is apparently broken and not fix-able, so this was the next best option until someone takes pity on her and gets her a trike.  ; )  And while they are at it, a barbie.  : )

Eric said she was all smiles on her first ride, but after a fall, she wasn’t as happy about riding.

See – little apprehensive.

Well, thats it from me for tonight!  Time to hit the couch!
