|We arrived at our next important destination about noon - Niagara Falls, NY. I had been here twice before, but the last time was with 5 kids,so this trip was definitely going to be different than that one! The day had been very overcast with occasional showers, but soon as we got to the falls the sun came out! My top priority was to do the Maid of the Mist boat trip, so we headed straight there before the clouds could decide to return. What an adventure that was! We were at the very front of the boat and got soaked, but the view of the falls from that angle just can't be beat! Beautiful!! After checking out more views of the falls from the tower, we checked into our hotel across the road with a great room overlooking the park. With all that walking we had built up an appetite so we went on the hunt for food. Picked up a couple dinners in the food court and took them back to the park to watch the rapids while we ate. We were about "walked out" at this point so went back to the room until time for the lights to come on then it was more walking back to the water to see that spectacle. Went to sleep listening to the roar of the falls. Life is good!
