4th of July in Grand Forks, ND. (Day 19)

Kailey's journal.

Me and Mom, and Daddy went in the car, and got ready to start the day. We drove around. We drove around Fargo, North Dakota, to watch a movie in Marcus West Acres 14 Theater. Mom and Daddy wanted to watch, Transformers, but I did not want to myself. So we watched Transformer anyways. We got the tickets and went to see the movie.

The movie was finally done. It was a long movie. It was not that good of a movie.

After the movie we went to get something to eat at Granite City Food & Brewery.
We chosed to eat outsite instead of eating inside. It was a good weather. The manager was next table seating near us. Until my Daddy wanted to move inside because the manager and some workers were saying bad words. But the manager apologized. He even gave us a $50.00 gift certificate, and after we ate he took care of our bill!

Next, we went to Thunder Road Fun Park, it had bumper cars, go carts,

and mini golf course.

After playing mini golf it was Daddy won the game, at one point my score was higher, but at the end Dad's had one point higher than mine. 

Then, we did the go cart  and I rode with Daddy.  Mommy won this race. And here I am with Dad on bumper cars. 

At night we drove back to Grand Forks, out went to a dirt road and light up our fireworks for the night. 

It was awesome!

We went back to the hotel and I found out I had 8 mosquito bites!!

..later went to sleep.

The End.

"Buying Fireworks." Day 18: Grand Forks, North Dakota

Driving to Denny's Restaurant for breakfast, unfortunately it was closed. I don't know why, but it was so we drove around when we saw Village Inn, we went in there and had breakfast. We saw lots of pies.

We went in and sat at our table and ordered drinks. I ordered chocolate chip pancakes. Then we got our food, and boy! it was yummy. My pancake was tasty. I almost ate it all up! After breakfast Mom, and Daddy were paying the bill. While they were doing that, I was looking at the pies. My favorite was the French Smooth pie, or something like that. It has whipped cream and chocolate, it looked sooo good!

Then we went back in our car and drove around. In the middle of no where fireworks store was there. It was called Generous Jerry's Fireworks.

We parked and went right in inside. It was off the hoogle!!
It was big, but dusty warehouse. So we walked around. There was a lot of people in there. We looked around a lot.

Then I saw little boxes with the print name on it, printed: "Pop! Pop!" You just throw it on the ground and it Pops!

I saw little sparklers.

Daddy bought a big package of fireworks.

We went back to our hotel, and there was an empty lot right next to the hotel. We light up the sparklers.
It was so cool!

There was gold, green and purple tank, it shoot three firecrackers.

After a few more sparklers ... we went back to the hotel and went to sleep.

Part 1: Trip to Winnipeg, Canada

Me, my Mom and my Dad went drove to Canada this weekend. It was a long drive almost 2 hours drive. I was so excited! We were in Canada!

Mom and Daddy were trying to find the hotel. Then, finally!
We were at the Inn At The Forks  hotel.

Inn At The Forks, Winnipeg, Canada

The hotel was better better looking hotel than I thought. So we went inside the hotel, and it was fancy. I was so so so so excited! We first checked in, got the card (the key), and went to the elevator. Inside our room was fantastic. We looked around, well, mostly in the room, but we forgot to look in the bathroom. It was wonderful and nice looking bathroom. The tub was wonderful.
I loved the sink.

Then we went back to the car to get our luggages. Then came right back to our room. We were all hungry so we went to a place called: Old Spaghetti Factory.  We went inside and saw lots of old stuff.  The lady showed us our table.  So we sat at our table, but I did not because I took pictures .. well, I could only take few pictures because my camera ran out of battery.  I sat down and ordered spaghetti with meatballs.

After our meal, Dad went back to the hotel to take a nap while me and my Mom went to the Manitoba Childrens Museum.

We went inside and there was a huge train.
I thought it was sooo cool. There was seats and everything. We walked in the engine room.
It was awesome!

So we went to the captain's room, and I saw all the gadgets. I even saw the old toilet, and dirty garbage disposal. It was so dirty, yet cool. We walked around and took several pictures.
