Niagara Falls!!! 1

For our anniversary, we decide to take a quick family trip to Niagara Falls. Neither of us had been there, and it had been on our to-do list, so we decided this was the time. We drove up after I got off work on Saturday night. It was about a 7 hour drive, not too bad. We got to the American side of the falls at like 6 in the am. We walked along the river rapids for a bit, and peeked at the falls. It was nice, moist, and refreshing. Hazel discovered earthworm city while we were walking around. Then we drove over the border to see if we could check in early to our hotel to no avail. We grabbed a cheesy breakfast buffet in Niagara and then hit up a outlet mall. Hazel and Dad slept in the car while Moni and Jade went shopping. We headed back to town and got to our room which had a beautiful view of the falls. The falls are truly amazing. God's creation is something wonderful. After a quick break of unpacking, starbucks and resting on our beds, we cruised down this cool little tram to the falls. We rode the Maid of the Mist right up to the falls. It was so fun! And we got blessed with beautiful weather too! The forecast said it was gonna be like 50 degrees, but it was like 75-80 and all sun!! The feeling of being so close to falls was exhilirating!! Moni said it best,"You jus feel like screaming, 'I'm alive!'" Definitely a must do, at least once in your life. After that, we climbed back into town and grabbed some Pizza pizza,

ice cream. We sauntered back to our room and took a nap. We ate a nice dinner at the hotel restaurant. Then we called it a night. What a great beginning to our anniversary trip!!
