Day 4 – Niagara Falls

Our last day!  Our main purpose for this trip was to see the Falls.  It didn’t work out as well as we had wanted it to, but we did get to see a bit of Niagara.  We didn’t actually get to them until around 6 pm.  As soon as we got there we headed for The Maid of the Mist.  It is as incredible boat ride that takes you down into the falls so you see them up close!  035034

052The kids LOVED it!  Well, everyone except Drew.  He didn’t think too much of the water splashing all around.  Since it was sunset we saw so many rainbows!  When Andy took the kids up the side walkway up along the falls they actually walked under a rainbow!  So cool!101078133When it gets dark they illuminate the falls with different colored lights.  It is really beautiful.  146156Matt wanted to take a “romantic” photo of us!  The last time we had been up there was pre-kid time!  He’s so funny!

We then stayed for the fireworks display over the falls.  We waited FOREVER!  When we called we were told it was at 9 pm – when in reality they didn’t go off until 10 pm.  As it turned out it was only a 5 minute display!  182But we saw it and the kids liked it!  We got home very late that night!

Though it wasn’t how we planned it – it worked out well and we saw an amazing display of God’s power and beauty!  We’ll go back another day when Drew is older and he can enjoy it more!
