‘Why Not Minot’

I was in Minot for the majority of the two glorious days of no school – aka my freedom weekend. I did get the book Four: A Divergent Collection which, is really good so far. 

Here are some of the highlights of my trip –

Hotel Waterpark:

Unlike last time I went to this waterpark, I had only gone down the purple slide once.  Purple being the most freakiest.  Being in a place of confinement going 50 km/hour is not that much of a joy ride.  I went on the Orange and Yellow slides (being rated not so freaky) 6 times. Each slide 3 times before attempting the Purple again. When I finally got to the Purple one after climbing 55 steps (not including platforms) to get to it, I counted to 20 before pushing myself off. In the end, I went on ‘Purple Monster’ as I call it now 5 whole times. Most times, I was singing ”Dark Horse” by Katy Perry to slow myself down.  It worked as I lost myself in the song.  I enjoyed it even though I was going down like a rocket.

Finding New Things:

Even though I’m proud to be a Canadian, I do enjoy going to the U.S once in awhile. My reasons: It’s something to do, I get to go to new places and, I find new things.  Some gross ex: Cookie Dough Oreo (you may think otherwise).  Some TOTALLY EPIC, ex: Goldfish Mac’n’Cheese and MEGA Goldfish

I almost died when I saw this. 😀

 

 This weekend I got to spend quality time with my mother – especially when she got us lost in Minot.  She took a wrong road.  Even though we are 5 million hours away from the nearest U.S. city,  it’s worth it to experience something other then where I am.

 

Minot Of Life

This weekend my family went to Minot, North Dakota. I have to say it’s not Buffalo, but still an amazing experience!  To get there – well it kinda of made my mind go bonkers! We passed some cows and just when I thought that was it for now Saskatchewan decided to put cows right beside the others. My mom in the morning said, “Look out your window!!”.  I said ” it’s not like I’ve seen my last cow!”

It was about another 3 hours until we got to the border. The Border guard checked our car trunk and all 3 of us felt just a tad bit uncomfortable. Going over the border in Ontario, we’ve never had our trunk checked.  It was really different.  In Ontario there is 5 million cars going across.  In Saskatchewan there is a negative of 5 million.  It was different.

We got over and I immediately was surprised. Why you might ask.  Well I’m going to tell you! North Dakota is like an American Saskatchewan! I’m telling you flatness for miles! That was until awhile later when I saw hills. Then I felt better. But still it was kinda freaky considering this was the first time I’ve been to Minot.

North Dakota – an American Saskatchewan!!

The first thing we did was go to the mall to eat. I got chicken nuggets and fries from a place called JJ’s Steakery.  Thumb’s up to the people who made it. For dessert we went to a place called Cherryberry’s ( I now call it Heavenberry’s because that’s how good it was!)

A masterpiece of diverse frozen yogurt and sherbet, and about 10 toppings :)

After we went shopping at Target.  I got a squishy toy skylander and a box of candies called Big Box of Boogers. I’m not joking that’s the name.

My boogers 🙂 LOL

Then we went to the candy shop.  I saw America’s largest gummy bear ( there were about 10 that I saw and they were huge!) I settled for a bag of toxic waste gum, Harry Potter chocolate frog and Bertie Bott’s every flavour beans.  All bought with my own money!!  I had the beans on the way home.  They were both disgusting and good.

When we were done shopping . We went to check in at the hotel. It was a nice place. My mom stepped out for a moment, and I hid under the throw.  When she came back she couldn’t find me for a few seconds. It was hilarious!!!

A stellar hotel water park

It was time to leave and I went back to the room. I wanted to go to the arcade before bed and I did! My dad took me for that.  I got 149 tickets and got some cool prizes.

The next morning we woke up early and got breakfast which consisted of bacon. Always better with bacon! Breakfast was done. We packed up and left for some last minute shopping. After we were going to Walmart but ended up not going.  I was sad.

North Dakota was a good place to go for the weekend. I love visiting the States!!  The people are nice and they have such cool stuff.  I would go back, how ’bout you?
