Today was our first long day of driving in one stretch - 7.5 hours. We made a few stops for gas, bathroom breaks and a picnic lunch at the Fargo – Moorhead Visitor's Center...and arrived in Minot around 5:30 pm.
A very colourful bison outside of the Visitor's Center!
We're over half-way through listening to “The Secret Garden” and really enjoying it. The kids are also busy reading books, colouring, listening to music, looking at the changing landscape and playing with stuffed animals (two of them anyways!). A few rough patches each day but overall they've been great travellers.
We've decided that North Dakota reminds us a lot of Alberta ...cheap gas, very little tax, fast speed limits (120 km/h on the I-94) and lots of wide open spaces!
Janis, the picture below is for you! We saw these treats at the Kalahari Resort yesterday but didn't give in to the temptation – maybe you'll have to try and make these :)
Two more days of travelling and we'll be at the farm in Olds - our home for the summer!
