Road Trip To Canada!

 On Thursday we went on a road trip to Canada, but we stopped at TONS of places on the way! It was such a long drive, we had to woke up at 4 in the morning and then left at 5:30.  My mom wanted to be at Duluth around 7:30, I am so glad I slept through most of the drive there!  Trust me I love missing a 3 hour drive to Duluth! lol!  So our first stop was Gooseberry Falls, my absolute favorite out of all 9 places!!!  It was so  beautiful, plus you could play and go behind the Water Falls!
 Such a beautiful place! If any of you are in the neck of the woods over there, definitely stop there!
 Yep, I was the first one to go behind the Water Fall. :D
 The water drops were so refreshing on that hot summer day!
Rose enjoying it too!
 Gabrielle is so pretty, I truly have the best older sister in the world!
 No one can ever match up to her, she's truly the best!
 Soaking wet and still loving every bit of it! lol!
 This felt so good!  Can you tell how much I LOVE the water?!
 There were some little caves on the way back and we decided to just make this cave a little silly...
 She literally jumped 5 feet in the air! She was close to the edge of the Water Fall too, talk about being a little nervice. :P
 The mist was so cool!
 My way of cooling off, dunking your head in the water!
 Next we went to a light house, wasn't the best ever but it was still cool.
 Then after the light house we went to this cool cliff place by the North Shore!  Absolutely breath taking!  But it was a little weird, from being across the street from our lake and seeing land on the other side and then seeing this lake with no end! Just a little weird...
 We threw rocks down and counted how many seconds it took for it to hit the water.  I counted 9!  That was a long way down!
 Jumping!  There was a lot of horse flies there and it was very hard to keep still while they were biting you, this worked great!
 Enjoying the view!!!
 I LOVE this bridge it's so freaky but fun at the same time!  It shook every step you took and the floor was see through!  I loved jumping and freaking my mom out, such a fun moment to remember!
 Number two for our water fall adventure.
 Can you see the pink crocs that are upside down in the water, that's me!
 Rose looks so cute in this picture!
 All of us on the big rock!  That was our end for day one for our road trip!
 Now were in Canada! Evidently there a bit patriotic there, can you tell?  At McDonald's we were just gonna order 8 of their dollar McChicken sandwiches, but they wanted $41.59 for them all!!! It costs $8 at our local one in Big Lake and their telling me they want us to pay $41.59 for them!!! There crazy!  We also heard that there was a Walmart there!!!  Walmart never sounded so good until now! There was practically nothing on the way there besides a Thrift store we went to cause we were in Desperate need of shorts cause it was so hot! Anyways we went in to Walmart and bought some rain poncho's, donuts, and gum they didn't have back in Minnesota, ah!
 Afterwards we walked a long way to this Canadian river which is the Pigeon River.
 Beautiful view!
 It was raining off and on the second day so I am so glad we got those rain poncho's at Walmart!
 We went to this other spot by the north shore where there were huge rocks!  Very fun!
 We made rock stacks, then we threw them and would see who could throw them the farthest!
 Then on the side they had this squishy foam that was a lot of fun to play with!
 Rose loving it!
 Me loving it!
 Another water fall that was our last for the trip..:(  Simply breathtaking though!
This was definitely a great mini vacation! Thanks mom! This was probably the longest post I did ever!  Totally worth it though! Have a great day everyone!
