North Shore Trip (Part 2)

I didn't mention that we stayed at an Americinn in Silver Bay. While it wasn't "fancy", the pool area had a big water slide for the big kids and a little water slide for the littles. Perfect for them. Oh! They had a great breakfast for the kids, too! Make your own waffles, biscuits and gravy and all of the usuals. What more could they need?

Two Harbors, MN

Lots of things to look at and see in Two Harbors. Unfortunately, I got very few pictures. I ran out of camera battery so I asked the chick in the gift store if I could use her outlet to charge the battery. At least I got a picture of Micah with the train. He was thrilled.

There are a few tunnels that you have to drive through in this area. My kids do a little thing where they all hold their breath until we reach the end of the tunnel.

Apparently, this is how Micah holds his breath.

Split Rock Lighthouse

Split Rock Lighthouse is a fascinating and beautiful place to visit. The weather was perfect and the kids loved seeing a lighthouse, up close and personal.

View from the top.

We were not able to manage to get all six kids to stick their heads through a hole at once. Glory couldn't stay still. Caleb wouldn't stay in the picture.

And Micah. Well, he didn't quite get the idea of the shot.
