A Day at the Park

A couple of weeks ago, my friend Robin and I took her daughter, Kaylin, and Michael to the park! Kaylin was quite familiar with the park and enjoyed running around and going down the slide! However, it was Michael's first trip to the park!

He slept for the first half of the park trip, but then he got to go in the swings! He liked it!! I think he likes the feel of dangling feet!

Then, Kaylin wanted to teach him how to go down the slide like a big kid! He got to take a trip down the slide with mommy!! :)

The little park trip made me so excited for spring to get here so we can go more often! It's been a little chilly and rainy the past couple of days which makes it hard to go outside!! But chilly rainy days are perfect for shopping, right!?!

Niagara Falls

Sam and I went to Niagara Falls, Canada, for our 6 year anniversary trip! Although it was tough being away from Michael for 2 nights - it was the first time we've left him overnight - it was so nice to be with each other.

We flew into Buffalo, NY, and rented a car. We drove to the New York side of the Falls first. It was amazing to walk beside the river and watch it turn from peaceful river to rapids and then to drop off a HUGE cliff!!

Did you know that "Niagara Falls" is actually 3 different waterfalls? I learned all of this while we were up there. There is the American Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, and Horseshoe Falls, which is the one most people think is "Niagara Falls".

On the American side, you couldn't really get a good look at either waterfall, but you could get really close to the American Falls and also walk out on an overlook. It was incredibly windy up there....

Once we crossed over into Canada, it was an amazing view! Our hotel was right in front of the Horseshoe Falls and being up high gave you an amazing look at the whole river!

We had such a great time!! Happy Anniversary to us!! <3
