Mom, July 11

Day 5:  Munising, MI to Crookston, MN.  The hotel last night had, of all things, a waterslide.  We ate at a Australian-themed restaurant (with local food - Randy had a pasty) and then the kids closed the pool down.  A highlight for them.  I have decided that we could just eat out and stay in a hotel with a pool in Eugene, and the kids would have just as much, if not more, fun.  It's more than a little annoying when we have to remind them about say, Niagara Falls at the end of the day that we saw them.  Anyhoo, we stayed on Hwy 2 today and although we missed most of the major thunderstorm we still got to see a lot of lightning, tons of rain and wind, and were warned on the radio of a tornado.  Exciting stuff!  We did a lot of driving today, and not much scenic stopping.  We did meet a traveling bald eagle at the hotel this evening though.
