I did make one purchase for myself. There was a new Ty moose that I wanted, but I was going to resist until I saw what his name was: Lumpy! How can I not buy him. You don't find too many creatures named Lumpy, and he was a moose too!
It was a relatively productive day of shopping. We got most of the stuff in just a few stores, and had a yummy lunch at the Rainforest Cafe. Mall of America really isn't too insane on a weekday.
