Day 1

Here we are traveling again. Today we did something different though...entered new territory. I've never been in the state of Pennsylvania. Can't say that any more. We left this morning and did just fine till we got to Cleveland, Ohio. Our road became a parking lot for a little bit but we were fine. Unfortunately we saw the problem being towed away. A semi had flipped over and really caused problems for everyone. I just hope the driver was okay.

We are doing things a little different this trip. Most the time we have all our hotels and things booked for the whole vacation before even leaving home. This time we didn't do that. So we got some pamphlets about hotels and I called ahead to one here in Erie, PA. We normally stay at Holiday Inn Express since we earn points and what not for free stays by sticking with the same type of hotel. Found out it was connected to a HUGE indoor water park and was sold out for the weekend. LOL That's why we plan ahead haha. But here at the same exit we got a Hilton which is just fine. Even has a restaurant in the hotel. We were going to just eat here but since it didn't open till 5pm we walked over to the a Cracker Barrel very close to the hotel. It was really good. It shocked us to see all the Thanksgiving/Halloween decorations out. Guess it's getting close though. Now we are all connected to the internet getting our lazy on. Mom didn't sleep well last night. Hopefully tonight will be better. We will only have 2 hours to go tomorrow to get to Niagara Falls so we can start our sight seeing tomorrow already.

Here is a picture of the semi...

  6. It's cooler weather in the north, so thinking of Fall is probably natural.... Not here--still beach time! Have a great time!!
