Day 3 - Black River Falls, WI

We didn't take the time for a swim this morning but we were ready and waiting for the doors to open at the LEGO Discovery Center at 10 am this morning! The kids were super excited and had a great time.

They loved the Dragon ride through a LEGO castle (we went on it twice), the 4-D LEGO movies (three different 10 minutes movies complete with wind, rain and snow where Noelle kept trying to grab the flying characters), the building centers and the store on the way out where they could build their own mini-figure!

We were back on the road by 2:30 pm. We stopped for supper about an hour out of Black River Falls, Wisconsin at Buffalo Phil's Grille - a very fun restaurant where our food was delivered on a train! 

After checking in we were thrilled to have gotten a suite - two rooms so the kids went to sleep really well tonight because we could turn off all their lights and close the door! We did go for a swim which felt nice.

The kids have done quite well so far driving each day. I hit Value Village a few weeks before we left and picked up a bunch of books that I sorted into days again so they have some new books and activity books each day – even I look forward to new books to read to them or CDs to listen to!


  1. LOVE the Buffalo Phil's picture - it made me laugh! :)

    Hi Jefferies
    It's neat to follow along on your blog as you travel back to Alberta. Debbie and John de Vries have another grandchild. Marilyn and Jim had a baby boy about 2 weeks ago. Haven't started seeding yet. Very wet. Had another rain this morning.
    Love Dad

  3. I also enjoy checking in on your travels!!
    Can't wait to see you all; Jeremy has certainly aged since Christmas!
