Happy 26th........and the next morning

I had a great birthday yesterday. Donny had the whole day off from school and I had birthday money burning a whole in my purse.

We spent most of the day at the Mall of America. We were there for 4 hours and didn't even cover the whole thing! Tate was such a good boy the whole time!
We had to take a little break from shopping for a little lunch at the rain forest cafe. Tate loved the thunder storm and the jungle table top. We only got about 2 pictures where he wasn't starring at the table.

Donny got us a baby sitter last night and took me to the Cheesecake factory. It was so good! The key lime cheesecake is the best. I mean look how happy I am!

Birthday girl got the last bite!

I woke up this morning to see everything covered in a blanket of snow. I even went out in my pj's to catch a few pictures of our first Minnesota snow.

It hasn't stopped snowing all day! So you can imagine how much snow there is out there now! It was a nice day to stay in.
