We spent 4 hours there and only saw about 3/4 of the mall.

Don't waste your time going to the Mall of America. This is so much better.

We also had a nice time driving around Edmonton. They have some great parks. The Saskatchewan River cuts the city in half. There is a park on each side the full length of the river inside the city.
There are 46 golf courses in Metro Edmonton!

The Wave Pool.
A few of the water rides are behind the wavepool.

There are a lot more water rides behind this end of the wave pool.

An exact replica of the Santa Maria.
It has the diving gear for the people who want to walk on the bottom of the lake.

One end of the lake. You can see the submarine going between the Santa Maria and the edge of the lake. There are underwater displays "Sea Life Caverns" which are viewed by the people riding the submarine or walking on the bottom of the lake. You can see the rail which the sub rides on. There is also a railed walkway around the lake for people who are walking on the bottom.

The Ice Rink.
This is where the NHL Edmonton oilers regulary train.

Inside the giant T&T Oriental Supermarket.
Mom was talking with the girl who was filling the sushie counter.

Just a very small part of the sushie counter.
They also had a big BBQ counter, which really looked good.
Whole and parts of roasted ducks, chickens, and ribs.
