    We got off the plane in Chicago and had about a 2 and a half hour layover, so had plenty of time to mosey around the airport. No one had had breakfast yet, so we went looking for food. Emily and I each had a bagel and Brian had the wonderfully nutritious McDonalds. Oh well, we're on vacation. No pictures of that lovely breakfast, but you're really not missing anything!
    What to do next while we wait? The kids went walking around looking through the shops in the airport (I can't imagine why they didn't find anything to buy:confused:!) so what should we do? Let's go to the bar!

    So we asked the bartender if we could have a beer chaser with our bloody Mary. He said "you must be from Wisconsin - only people from Wisconsin order beer chasers". Is that true?! Here I thought the two went hand in hand:joyfull:
    We finished our drinks and then just relaxed and waited....

    She looks thrilled, doesn't she?!
    Our ride to Miami:

    Of course they had to de-ice this thing too. But this time we got to watch before we boarded...we have always been on the plane while they've had to do this

    After that it was time to board - yay - finally!

    I live about an hour and 15 minutes east of the Mall of America, so we go there fairly often. I just took my niece to the Mall about a month ago and we did the Sea Life Aquarium and Flying Over America package and the Aquarium was really fun. The Flying Over America ride was comparable to Soarin', there were some parts I liked better than Disney's :cautious::eek: but both are good rides. However at $16 for one person to ride, it was a little much, so the aquarium and ride package was a decent deal. At the Mall of America's version the seats are one thing I thought were better, they are a little more comfortable.

    It is in the Nickelodean Universe area of the Mall, kind of near where the Hard Rock Cafe is. Good ride, but a little pricey.

    I didn't even know about this but I said something about it to my husband and he apparently knew all about it. Might have to check it out at some point. How was the wait for it?
