Cross Country Day 2 & 3 – By Jacquelyn

    Hi Everyone! It’s Jacquelyn. On Day 2 of our journey we passed by Niagara Falls one last time and then headed for the border. Once back in America we stopped at McDonalds for breakfast and drove through NY, PA, and OH until reaching Cedar Point resort around 4 PM.

     We decided to eat dinner at TGIF as our park passes were good from 5 until closing.  The first ride we went on once entering the park was TOP THRILL DRAGSTER.  Christina and my mom waited while my dad and I experienced a 420 ft. drop from the front row. It was definately worth the wait for me, although Christina disagreed. The rest of the night made up for it though, as she rode the carousel, a roller coaster, and some other rides as well.

     After the park we returned to the hotel and took a walk on the beach. The sand was incredibly soft and felt great to walk on after a night at the amusement park. Next, we had plans to go swimming but when we looked in the outdoor pool and hot tub we quickly decided to head inside because the surface was covered with dead insects.  Christina and my mom spent some time in the indoor pool while dad and I grabbed ice cream to bring back to the room for everyone – a delicious ending to the day:)

     Day 3 was fairly uneventful, but we did drive through a total of 7 states. After stopping for dinner in Walnut Grove, we watched the sunset across the Minnesota sky. A remnant of the sun’s rays could be seen on the horizon until 10:45 or so, causing the horizon to look like one beautiful rainbow. We checked into our hotel in South Dakota around 11:30 central time and quickly fell asleep.

  1. Sounds great!! But I would be sitting out the 420 foot drop with your mom and Christina 🙂 And isn’t that a cool ancestral connection to the Falls…

    Hey is this Walnut Grove as in Little House?

    What a fabulous time for all of you. Enjoy!
