We ate dinner a local restaurant right across from the hotel called Fixx Urban Grill. It was delicious! One thing we have been missing though is sweet tea, even McDonalds doesn't have it up here! We have gotten the strangest looks from people when we ask for it too. That, and honey mustard, apparently that is foreign to them as well, they serve everything with sweet and sour sauce. It's pretty good though, so I can make do I suppose. ;-)
Thank goodness for wifi at these hotels. It helps us keep in contact as we travel through Canada. Hopefully we will continue to have it in the hotels, but we may have to go a few nights without.

We decided to stay for the day in Dawson Creek. It is a beautiful day, mid 60's with a cool breeze! We drove around and saw the historic mile marker, the begining of the Alaska highway, and a cute little pioneer village, then got some lunch and donuts and Tim Hortons- yum yum!! We discovered last night that we are now in the Pacific time zone. I'm not sure when we entered, our clock in the car didn't change on it's own and it usually does.
After lunch we went to check out the local pool at the Kenn Borek Aquatic Center. This place was crazy cool! They had a large pool with diving boards at 3ft and 10ft., a huge kids pool area with a lazy river and water fountains and splashy things everywhere, a hot tub, a sauna, and a giant slide! The kids tried it all, even the 10ft diving board! I wish I could have taken a video of them jumping!
