So we headed back to Grand Casino Hinckley this weekend. It was Jennifer's birthday earlier in the week and we also have fun with the kids at the arcade. Well it's a reason to go right? Ha
This time we left early to miss the after work traffic. We decide to take the same route as last time just so we can say we tried. That hwy through Mora is terrible I don't like it and I'll try to stay off it from now on. It's bumpy and wavy and it makes for a terrible ride. We decided we're going to try a different route on the way home. We decided to stop at Tobies Restaurant & Bakery and this will become a stop from now on even if we are just passing through. We bought corn bread which was fantastic and a big even a more fantastic cinnamon roll.
This place was busy but worth the stop.
We recommend stopping by.
We got to the site and really just laid low, the weather was nice enough to open all the windows. We headed to the park for the kids to play and wear off some energy before bed. Jennifer decided she was going to head up to the casino for some night gambling. It's really nice that they pick you up in front of your site ad drop you off at the front door of the casino, also pick you up at the front foot and drop you off at your site. She got back late and no we won't be buying a new RV soon nor did she lose the on we have. Ha!
My parents were coming up my dad loves to hit the slots just like Jennifer, my mom and I, eh doesn't really matter. In the morning the kids and Jennifer got up I got to sleep in alittle and we decided to get breakfast and hit the arcade before grandma & grandpa arrived we went for breakfast and I tried Bananna Fosters French toast which I'll have over and over again! It was amazing! Then we headed to the arcade. Tickets! Tickets! Tickets! was the sound I heard. Why some arcades are getting away from tickets and going to a card I'll never know. Kids hold them up with pride it's awesome! They played and picked out their toys and we headed back to the camper to rest before my parents got there. I fell asleep probably because of a food coma. It was 12:45 and we needed to head back to meet my parents. The last time we were here the shuttles were plenty and quick it seemed this time it almost took 20-30 min for one. It just seemed long this time. When we met my parent my dad and Jennifer headed into the casino and my mom and I and kids went to back to the site. My mom always brings treats, sugars my kids up and leaves but that's what grandparents are for. While we were hanging out on the picnic table getting our sugar on we heard the sound check for the Hank Williams Jr concert that was going on the outside stage. It was going to be a great campfire tonight. We met Jen and my dad back at the casino for dinner.
After dinner the kids wanted to hit the arcade and during that time my parents needed to leave. We said our good byes and they were on their way. We stayed at the arcade for a little longer and the kids had a ton of tickets!
This arcade is not short on tickets which is awesome for the kids. The kids were picking out their treasures and a guy walks up with a ticket of 50 & someone else gave a 100 in tickets these kids made out like bandits. They got their stuff and Jenn decided she wasn't done with the casino. The kids and I decided to walk back to the site which wasn't really far it was a great night fora walk. The kids and I snacked and just watched television. I noticed that the wind was down so I was going to start a campfire since we couldn't get one going on Friday night. I got this bad boy a blazing and just as I did Jennifer came back from the casino and we decided to make s'mores and listen to the Hank Willams Jr concert. It was great. The kids went to bed and we just hung out by the campfire listening to live music. The fire went down to coals, the music was over and we headed in for the night.
Well it's the basic Dump & Roll. We decided to take a different way home it seemed a little longer but we avoided that terrible road in Mora. We took Interstate 35w to Hwy 95 home which was way more smooth for our trip home. We all had a great time the weekend just goes so quick I now know why people don't like Mondays and love Fridays.
Safe Travels Everyone.
