We had lots of fun. The tour took us a couple of hours on the Missouri River. As the driver fired the engines, Baby Doll looked up at me and breathed, "This is the first time I've ever been on a big boat ride!" She was so excited. Then she fell asleep after the first 10 minutes and slept until we were re-entering the marina.
When our tour was over we climbed back in the van and drove the hour or so to Great Falls. We stopped at a little park and ate lunch. My sweetie pushed the kids in the swings and they mostly enjoyed the slide even though they had to share it with another family.

After we left the museum, we tried to check into the hotel but our rooms weren't ready yet so we went up the street to the Burger King and had ice cream and fries while the little ones explored the play place. After an hour we headed back to the hotel and we were able to claim our rooms. We rested for a bit while the kids watched a little TV. Baby Doll fell asleep, so we waited until about 7:00 before we tried out the pool and the hot tub.
By 8:00 the kids were ready for dinner so we found an Applebee's nearby. When we were finished, I programmed the nearest LDS chapel into the GPS and we took off to find it. The kids just thought we were trying to find the hotel and they were very confused. Apparently the GPS was too. It sent us down several dirt roads and we got lost multiple times.
|Now that's what I call a monster fry!|
Tomorrow we head into Glacier National Park. We are planning another early start and my sweetie is already sleeping. I will try to take more pics so you can see all of our adventures.
