After a rather lengthy stop we were back on the road. The whole trip was uneventful except for the extreme heat every time we stopped for gas or a rest stop. The car thermometer read "104," which was our car's personal record!
We arrived in Minneapolis/Bloomington around 6:00 (CT), and after checking in at the Fairfield, we headed to Culver's for our traditional first day stop. Since we had had such a big breakfast, we were able to skip lunch, have snacks in the car, and then have a light supper. After supper, we headed to REI, a great camping/outdoorsy store that Jared had introduced us to last year. We were able to find a wind/rain jacket for Leah, and Chloe bought a new Camelback water bottle.
After shopping, we headed back to the hotel for a dip in the pool, and a good night's sleep. We needed to rest up before our big shopping day!
