Niagara Vacation: Part 2

Wednesday we decided we would view the falls from the Canadian side, so we once again crossed the border and took in the views of the Horseshoe falls.
This was an "old scrow" that has been stranded in the upper rapids of the Niagara river since 1918Upper rapids of the Niagara River

Then it was on to lunch. We were so excited to meet up with the Sorensons including Lisa's sister and brother, and the Stamm's for lunch.

After a late lunch and more walking around we decided to head back to the hotel, and meet up with the rest of the group. We ended up sitting by the pool and visiting till late in the evening.

Thursday, we had planned to meet up with all of the families for a day at the park. What fun to be able to sit and visit with everyone in the same place and get a chance to see all of our children in the same place.Some of the guys, standing around and visiting

This post made me grin from ear to ear! I love the photo of Matthew smiling next to Lizzie! Hoping for a Part 3 soon :)

I must say that your little Matthew is a player. Here I thought he was betrothed to Cayman, and as soon as another pretty girl is around, he's putting the moves on her. (I saw the picture of Matthew and Elizabeth's arms linked on Lisa's blog.) I also noticed that Cayman had her back to Matthew and was flirting with Owen. So much for young love!

Looks like you had a wonderful time Jill. I'm glad you were able to have this experience and to share with other families in like situations. Should be very uplifting and encouraging for you.

Lovely lovely :)

Tyler said...

It was so much fun meeting you and your family. You better keep your eye on speedy Steve and I don't think I'd be sleeping in the car if he's driving :)


Kristen said...

Hey, what are you doing taking pictures of my backside? You told me backsides were not allowed. :)

Lisa said...

Magical. The whole experience was magical.

Alexandra just adores your Megan. We need to keep those two in touch for sure!

(love that rainbow picture you got!)
