The Kalahari!

We arrived at the Kalahari Waterpark Resort within minutes of the Nickerson family for our rendezvous with them! They had driven west to Alberta, dropped our trailer off at the farm and then continued on their holiday to the mountains and down through the States to meet up with us.

We have loved our last two visits at the Kalahari and it is even more enjoyable when we could share it with good friends! We started with the waterslides, wave pool, and lazy river Thursday afternoon and then in the evening the older kids and Dads went to the Indoor Amusement Park and had a blast with the go-carts, laser tag, ropes course, mini-golf and a climbing wall! Friday morning saw most of us back at the waterpark  - including the outdoor part (it was a little cool but we enjoyed the sun when it shone). Another go-cart and laser tag run Thursday afternoon ended our time together as we said good-bye.

The Nickerson’s headed east on their way to Toronto and we headed west to Alberta stopping in St. Cloud, MN for the night (a four hour drive). A seven hour drive on Saturday to Minot, ND and we are now in a different landscape -  from the east coast of densely wooded land to wooded rolling hills and farmland to the flat prairies! Two more days and we’ll be in Alberta!

 Everyone loaded up and ready to go!
