J::Are you ready for a crazy curveball questions?
R::Uh-oh, yeah, what is it?
J::Should we go to Duluth this weekend?
Fast-forward 2 hours and we had our hotels booked and we were ready to head out first thing the next morning. We kept the whole thing a surprise from the girls, even the packing.
It was totally last minute, but it wasn't completely out of the blue. Reid and I had talked about a possible trip to Duluth....ahemm the Mister has never been!!! I know, right?!
So, when we realized we had no plans for the Labor Day Weekend and the weather was supposed to be nice, we made the most of it. When else can you book hotels for Duluth and know for certain the weather will be great for all of the outdoor activities?
My favorite view of the Twin Cities on our way out of town
Coming in to Duluth
We had lunch at Coney Island, we like to eat at non-chain places when we're traveling and love to find the places the locals eat...as well as the tourists.
The girls were such a great travelers!
Quick little cat nap in the car on the way to the Depot
I was more excited for the train than I should have been. I wouldn't say it was terrible, but you definitely aren't missing anything if you skip this tourist activity. Maybe the museum portion is better, but we didn't do that part.
Of course, we still had fun
With our last minute booking, there weren't many options available, especially for Saturday night. We knew we wanted 2 nights, so not to rush the travel and the experiences and wear the girls thin. So we took a chance on a cheaper hotel. My list included, 2 queen beds a pool and a continental breakfast. We ended up finding on in Superior, minutes from Duluth. It was a little sketch, but if I had to stay again, I think I would.
Daddy has the girls a little brainwashed. As we were crossing the Bridge to Wisconsin Libby said, "Make me wanna puke, puke!" and I caught it on video :)
Daddy swam with the girls while Mommy went to pick up take out from the Thirsty Pagan, best pizza ever!!
And then we all slept in one room and we got at least 11 hours of uninterrupted sleep with everyone waking at or after 7am. Yahooooooooo!
Stay tuned for Days 2 and 3 in Duluth!
