For Eddie's birthday I booked a two day trip to Niagara Falls, just the two of us. His birthday was in April but I knew that my parents were taking our boys to North Carolina for a week this summer. I planned it when they were away so we didn't have to worry about a babysitter. Neither one of us had been to Niagara Falls and it is only about a four hour drive from Ohio. A nice lady offered to take this pic of us after seeing us try to take it ourselves. We stayed in a hotel on the Canadian side and this was the view from our room. Love the rainbow.
These are the American Falls.
These are the Canadian or Horseshoe Falls. Do you see that boat? That is the Maid of the Mist. It takes you right by the American Falls and practically into the Canadian Falls. They have to hand out rain ponchos because you get completely soaked! I was amazed at how smooth and steady the boat was as we were looking at the Canadian Falls! We also walked through tunnels and went behind the falls. It was amazing and again the ponchos came in handy!
We saw all the sights and even went to the casino one night. We are not big gamblers but wanted to try our luck at the slots. We lost! We had a great time and thanks mom and dad for watching the boys so we could get away!
Monday night as we were walking around Niagara, Nicole calls. She sounds weird. She knew we were away with no internet. She informs me I am one of 35 finalists for the Chatterbox Design Team Audition! I go crazy on the streets of Niagara Falls. Never in a million years did I think my name would be on that list! I am so excited and honored to be on that list with such talented ladies! Did you see some of those names? I wish everyone good luck as we now are waiting for product to be mailed to us to make a layout/project to see who makes it on the team.
I have a long list of things to do today. One of which is picking out a paint color for the upstairs bathroom. Have a great day!
