Pouring Out

Well, it's taken me a while to post any pictures at all, and I'm sure it'll take a while for bits and pieces to come up. Vacation is always a good thing in my mind. It takes you away and allows you to look back in at life from the outside. I tend to see things away that I never would have saw while I was in the midst of things.

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 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.

Here is a picture of the Canadian falls, right at the mouth. This was such a picturesque day...I had a hay day taking pictures ;D!

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.

Here's one of the many Maid of the Mist boats beginning the trek down the waterway towards the Canadian falls. They begin by going by the American falls and giving a really awesome history of Niagara.

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.

The CN Tower
Well, that's all the time I have for now. We are still settling in...I've been battling headaches and fatigue. We have a long weekend coming up, so are trying to get things cleaned up, so we can enjoy some time visiting with my family when they get here.
There will be more to come at a later and reflections about God's power and beauty.
