Niagara Falls!

The last full day that my parents were here we headed over to Buffalo, New York and spent the day at Niagara Falls.  It was so much fun!  We had a blast and got absolutely SOAKING wet.  I mean, we were drenched from our head to our toes!

We got wet on the Maid of the Mist boat ride that we took down by the falls, but when we got off, we trekked up the side of the cliff to stand super close to the falls.  And we got drenched.  I mean, we were being pelted so hard by those falls that it was like we were walking through a tsunami. So fun!  We had to buy sweatshirts to warm up afterwards.  We were freezing!

It's still surreal to me that we are this close to all of these amazing sights.  Wow.

I had been to the falls when I was around 9 or 10, so it was super neat to go back as an adult and bring our boys.  They absolutely loved it!  It's the best watching them see new things and places ... which they'll be doing plenty of this year! :)

Levi was enamored with all the stories of the people who have gone over the falls in barrels and whatnot.  We watched a film on the falls and it's history while we were there and both boys were captivated!  Especially when it talked about all the people who have gone over.  Crazy!

I don't think I could ever tire of this sight.  Absolutely incredible!

  1. I went to college about an hour southeast of Buffalo, if you get a chance you should check out Letchworth State Park, it should be about an hour and a half from you--it's absolutely beautiful in the fall and there's some great hiking trails.

  2. As a Canadian, I just have to say that you haven't even seen the Falls until you have visited our side. They are so incredibly stunning and breath taking. Next time you MUST come across the border and visit our beautiful country!!!
