After the Market, we went to see Shanna at the University. She’s a professor there. Here she is in the University of Minnesota mascot hat. Isn’t she cute??
We ate lunch at a wonderful Italian deli and ventured off to the Zoo/Conservatory. Sam had never been to the Zoo– he goes to the conservatory to beat the winter blues and the zoo is closed at that time. Admission to the Zoo/Conservatory is just $1! We saw a baby orangutan. sleeping monkeys with their tails wrapped together, a snow leopard, tigers, lions and giraffes.
Next, we went into the Conservatory. It took my breath away! The plants were beautiful.
Tuesday, I tortured my poor husband by taking him to the Mall of America. We spent about 5 hours just walking on every floor. I didn’t go into too many stores. It was a great way to get our exercise for the day!
