This is me after a long day of shopping. Yes, it is hard for me to even say it, but I was completely tired after the day was through. I love to shop, but that was more than even I could handle. We didn't really have anything in mind to buy, but we found a few things that we hadn't seen anywhere else. I found a bracelet charm w/ the name Caden on it. I was just by chance looking to see what they had, and sure enough there was just one charm w/ his name. That way I will always remember how special he was to me. Notice the rollercoaster in the background, that is how close it was to where we were sitting.
Tom too had enough of shopping. He was a trooper though. He was willing to walk around to every store that I wanted to go to even though shopping is not his thing. Notice the ring on his right hand. We found a place that would engrave names into rings and have it done by the end of the day, so he had Caden's name put on it. It means a lot to him to have something that he can hold onto and just remember Caden by. That had been something that he wanted to do for a long time, but never found a place that would do that sort of thing.
The following are just some random pictures that I took while we were in the Mall of America. Mostly I just took some of Tom being funny. We honestly really needed this trip, and it did a lot of good for us to get away from all of the problems back home. It was nice to not have to think about them for awhile.
