Every year we go to the “bear hotel” which is Stoney creek inn in Moline IL. It has become a tradition since we have gone for several years now! You especially love the bear elevator because when it gets to the top floor there is a mural of a family of bears. We ride up and down the elevator watching for the Bears. There is a cool pool where you can swim under the wall to the outside and then swim back under for the inside. We go eat at this great restaurant called the machine shed. There is a cute children’s museum with lots of gongs to play with. I look forward to going on this trip every year. It’s especially fun to watch you love it too!
