Dixon Goes To Minneapolis!

On Wednesday morning, Jennifer, Annisa, Robert Dixon, and I flew to Minneapolis for the Tastefully Simple Convention.  It was Dixon's first flight and he was awesome!  However, his mom didn t fare as well.  She became very nauseous during the landing.  A few cold compresses and some ice water helped a little, but then the real adventure began.  We had to schlepp everything from one terminal to another to find our Super Shuttle and it was hot ! Add heat and schlepping through parking lots, riding on trams, going up and down elevators and Annisa had just about had it.  When we finally got on board the shuttle, we discovered there was no air conditioning!  In spite of it all, we made it to the hotel.  This picture was taken in the airplane just before take-off.
Once we got  unpacked, Jen and I decided to hit the Mall of America!  Woo Hoo!  Shopping!  About an hour later, Annisa called and said she was feeling better and joined us.  We shopped until about 9:00 (10:00 pm our time) and headed back to the hotel.  Dixon loved the train ride and was going strong! As soon as we returned, we gave him a bath and he proceeded to entertain us with his laughing and cooing!  What a little night owl!
This morning we met the members of Jen's and Annisa's teams at the famous Hell's Kitchen restaurant for breakfast.  OMG!  It was delish!  They are known for their homemade lemon yogurt, granola, and peanut butter.  It requires another visit before we leave! This is inside the restaurant and the next photo is of Dixon with his first . . . .
TATTOO!  Yes, he has a little parrot tattoo!  Isn't that adorable!
To everyone back home . . . Dixon is a great little traveler and we are all having a wonderful time!  Will post more of our Minneapolis adventures tomorrow!
