Our Family Day Trip September 2016
Happy Thursday! How is your week going? Mine is going great. Today I am sharing with you our family day trip to the Twin Cities that we took a few weeks ago.
We live about two hours away from the Twin Cities so we had a ways to drive. On Instagram I shared my favorite road trip essentials (click the link if you would like to see what they are).
After being in the car for a couple of hours we stopped at the Como Zoo and Conservatory park and had a picnic lunch. My sister made these molasses cookies and they were so good! To accompany them we had the cookies I mentioned in my Friday Favorite post last week.
After lunch we went to the Como Conservatory. It was really pretty and fun to tour.
After touring the conservatory we walked through the zoo. We saw gorillas, seals, giraffes, etc. It was really fun. I can tell you though that I am not the person that could walk around a zoo all day. I was really exhausted when we left. Haha.
From the zoo we went to Minnihaha Falls. We saw the waterfall and then just chilled at the park.
For dinner we went to the Hard Rock Cafe located just outside of Nickelodeon Universe in the Mall of America. The food was yummy and the service was great. Definitely recommend. After dinner we stopped at some stores such as lego, Apple and Williams and Sonoma. We finished the night with Caribou coffee (mint condition mocha for the win!) and drove home. I think most of us fell asleep too.
Overall it was a great day and I loved hanging out with my family before school started!
