Had a time to finally just sit and read, actually read for an extended length of time. I finished two and a half books while I was away...that's unheard of in the past while for me.
I would love to say that things are calm as ever now that we're back, but that would be a blatant lie. Life with three kids, a job to work, a house and family to care for and especially in the summer...it equals hairiness for our family on a variety of levels.
Here are some pictures of Niagara Falls...the falls which are considered the Canadian falls and also the falls which are considered the American falls. There is also a picture of the CN Tower in Toronto, which we took as we drove by...we opted out of actually going up the tower when we saw the cost...took the kids to the Science Centre and the Imax for less money, so it was still an awesome day in Toronto.
Here we are posing for a family picture with the American Niagara behind us. Getting a decent picture of us all is quite rare, but we came home with quite a few this time.
We were marvelling at the colour of the water by the falls. It was a beautiful colour.
Another picture of the shores leading up to the Canadian falls, with the bridge in the distance. The Canadian/American border falls at the mid-point of the bridge.
The American Falls...I just love the way the water falls onto the rocks. They were really neat to see up close on the Maid of the Mist ride.
I took this one from the walkway above, as the Maid of the Mist drew closer to the Canadian Falls.
A zoomed in close up of the Maid of the Mist and it's occupants.
