East Coast Trip - Niagara Falls, NY

Our first stop on our summer adventure was Niagara Falls, NY. None of the kids had ever been there, that they remember and we adults hadn't been there in a long time. It really is a beautiful sight. I have always been on the Canadian side, which the best view from that side is of Horseshoe Falls. To get a good up close view of both falls we sprung for a ride on The Maid of the Mist. We got to get up close to the falls. Every one got wet, but in 90 degree weather, no one complained. We had to hang on to Evan tight. He not only was slippery, but wanted to climb on the railing all the time. I was exhausted at the end of the ride, but it was fun and I would do it again.
James and James walked to the bottom/side of the falls. Hannah didn't want to go, so we went up to the platform and enjoyed the sun with the little ones.
We had a great stop there and I'm sure it will be remembered for a long time to come.

I like the picture below - James hung on to Evan and Evan hung on to James. Brothers.
