^Does it have a commemorative plaque?

 

I had a lot of fun, trying to keep up with the facebook updates, yesterday. Almost like being there.

 

Ok, not really, but that's what I'm telling myself.

Everything looks amazing... I think everyone has to admit that IKEA meatballs are truly amazing.. MOA looks so different before nick took it over. Great TR as usual. Any day now Kidtums will be the biggest credit whore ever

I always enjoy seeing TR's from places I really want to go to. I've always wanted to go to the Mall of America and I'm glad you guys are having a great time. IKEA is another place I'd like to go to, just to experience it...

 

(Also, there is a possibility of a chance of a slight hope that I might be able go on a TPR trip in 2012, depending on where the trips are!)

Yeah, old news really.

 

Looks like a good start to a great trip! Of all the things I miss about living in MN, it would have to be: 1)State Fair 2)MOA 3)That IKEA.

 

Have fun...and don't forget to eat some cheese curds while you're in Minnesota!

Did you guys ride Spongebob? If so, did the lift hesitate a couple of times making it seem like it was gonna stop? We rode it beginning of July and it hesistated which freaked the wife out since its going straight up.

 

Also, there is no way LAX is worse than Eppley here in Omaha. There are a couple of food courts, but other than that there is nothing. There's only 2 concourses for Omaha for a total of maybe 30 gates.
