Our winter getaway destination this year was the exotic metropolis of Grand Forks, North Dakota. What a follow up to Italy, eh?
We hopped in the minivan and made a run for the border for a few days over spring break. Just needed a change of pace, and some family time. We stayed at the Canad Inns which sports a big, loud water park- Heaven on Earth for kids who have not seen a bathing suit for 6 months (except when they "swim" in our tub). Add to that a hotel room with bunk beds and a Playstation, and an in-hotel arcade, and matching rainbow bathing suits for the girls from Target and as far as they are concerned, GF is da bomb! Not without its hiccups. Or throw-ups, I should say. Three of 'em. One in the pool (which was then shut down for cleaning), one near the hot tub (caught it. in my hands. it's all good.) and one in the middle of the night on the carpet. You may wanna avoid room 209. Just saying. But overall...good times :-) And here is a picture of what the kids have been up to at home...our poor dog!!
