2nd Day here in Coon Rapids, and all is going well. Today I got a bit more of a sleep in than yesterday, which I am thankful for. I am sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo tired. Lukily I have Annikas & Eila room all too my self, and I get to sleep in Annikas "princess" bed, which makes me feel like a princess! Uncle and & Papa Bear have started calling me princess..... not sure if it's to do with the bed or if its to do with my travepod user ID : princessgrace.... if I had only known that my ID had been shown on my profile page, I would have maybe chosen a different name :)

Anyway, back on track, I got up and I went up for a delicious breakfast of pancakes, maple syrup, and bacon....... YUM!

 Our day was taken up with lots of fun fun fun fun fun, well, for us kids that is! Hannah, Eila, & Karl played bear, with hunters chasing them and catching them out in the snow. The rest of the girls were out in the snow too, playing dogs. After chasing the "dogs and bears" around they decided to try ice skating, wow, they are good at it, I tried the day before but wasn't very successful, And what was I doing on that freezing (well I think it's freezing) morning ???? I was inside sleeping! Hahaha, what I'm best at! sleeping & eating, and talking :) but I didn't spend all day sleeping, I did eventually get out in the cold, I think the snow is great, I just wouldn't want to live in it….. I also tried snow boarding……. nope, I think I'll stick to surfing instead!

Us kids had heaps of fun in the snow, while Mum, Uncle, and a little help from Dad were cleaning out Winnie so we could send Winnie on a holiday from the cold….. to the shed. The adults spent basically all day doing the RV while Camp Organiser, organised the house.  She made us great meals, cleaned the house and all, pretty amazing! So the adults were busy all day doing this and that…… and us kids just played, played, and  played some more…. until we got tired of playing, then it was trudging back inside, all hot and breathless….. and more work for Camp Organiser.  All the wet stuff had to go through the dryer, and all the dry stuff had to be put back in the closet, just as well we bought in the blue stackable containers to pile all our stuff into. 

We all came in for lunch…. finally a small break for the adults… a small one. After lunch something terrible happened…. and I mean terrible. Mums tooth snapped off…. and it looked horrible, just as well it was only a fake tooth on a plate. They rang up the dentist, but could only get a appointment next week…!!!!!!!!!!!  Mum protested, she didn't want to walk around town with a gappy mouth… she eventually got an appointment the next morning at 8am…. better than next week!

The afternoon was basically us kids playing in the snow, eventually getting tired, tired enough to come in and be crazy inside. The adults, well their afternoon was, well, more cleaning….. how fun, some one has to do it! But by the end, the RV looked great, it was spotless, the carpets were all soft and clean, the walls were unstained, the seats were scrubbed, everything looked great, and when I looked in the RV (once it was clean) I sooooo had wished we could keep it that clean while we were travelling, won't happen, not with 7 kids it won't. :)

That was basically our day……. the adults eventually got Winnie banned to the shed…… eventually. Oh, and the other highlight of the day was skipping Auntie Arja after dinner. That was great. We had a great time talking to her, mum showed her gappy teeth (oh!) and we had a great time, it also gave the adults a bit of time to relax from all that scrubbing and washing and sorting and, well plain cleaning all day……. I think we all love to relax.
