Happy 4th! I’m always a day late on my "happys"… it’s because I blog really late at night (wee hours of the morning) and the day is already over. Anyway, happy 4th! Otey, Cooper, and I went to IKEA (I LOVE IKEA) and the Mall of America (MOA) this afternoon. For any of you who have never been to The MOA, it is fabulous! Seriously, like every store you can ever imagine and then some. Here’s the sad part… we did NO shopping at the MOA! There’s a really fun amusement park inside of the mall also. We only had an hour until the mall closed, so we took Cooper on rides for the entire hour. He loved it! They had 7 or 8 rides that he could go on. The fastest one of the evening was his favorite (like that’s any surprise). Otey and I both start working tomorrow. I think we have the babysitting issue all delegated and sorted out. Check with me on Sunday and I’ll tell you if we really do! Family #5… almost done….
