Niagra Falls

We made a quick pit stop at Niagra Falls during a summer travel. As quick of a pit stop as you can at Niagra Falls that is. 

We have visited both the United States and Canadian sides. In my opinion, if you are looking for things to actually do, the US side is better. But the view of the falls is not the greatest. The Canada side had less to do, but the view of the falls was undoubtedly the best. These photo's are from this trip on the US side. Maybe one day I'll pull the photo's from our Canadian side to show you the comparison.

I love that bridge in the background.

I think I like it black and white better. Either way, it's a purty old bridge. It's just a walking bridge to get to more of the falls activities.

These birds were everywhere. In parking lots mostly. Amazing what people are feeding these birds. I declare them the most unhealthy birds on the planet.

From the US side you get more of a side angle of the falls. From the Canadian side you get a full on view. Makes a real pretty background for pictures of your family.

We really wanted to ride this ferris wheel. It was HUGE. Unfortunately, it was on the other side.

The girl likes picking her flowers. We have some rules on what we can pick and from where. She really is a compulsive flower picker. But a really cute flower picker isn't she?

Summer Fun

We did several fun things over the summer. We were also crazy busy with the 'stuff' that pops up. 

One activity we added to our plate was tumbling. And boy does the little monkey sure like it. She's doing pretty good at cartwheels.

We visited some bouncy houses.

We went to the park quite a bit. Just for fun and she was part of a kids group twice a week that did really fun games and crafts with them.

Of course we enjoyed the sprinkler. Our one dog usually enjoys it most.

As long as there is no thunder or lightening, what kid doesn't love some rain and puddles.

Off to School

This site has only taken me about 2 years to start. Not too bad. Hey, I've been busy. The little Munchkin has started school and goes all day now. That sure has opened up more time for me to get work done. No more working really late hours after everyone else has gone to bed, or really early hours before anyone else gets up. Working during the day while not getting interrupted 47,000 for very typical things that a certain 5 years old needs, is going to take some getting used too. 

I'm making the most of every minute during the school day, and our evenings are....well....enjoyable! And happy! And less stressed!  By Golly Miss Molly I think this is what a normal life is!

And here I thought I would be all sad and weepy when she started going all day. Hell no ! I'm ecstatic, this is great! I mean that in the most respectful way of  course. 

I thought I would start this new site off with all this material already done. I had how to's, video's and all kinds of things planned out. But the more I planned, the longer it took me to actually sit down and just do it.

So here we are. Just me and you kid. With a title, 1 post, and zippo content to start with, just lots of blank space. And I'm okay with that. That's just simply how I'm going to roll these days. Bare with me while I slowly create pages and go through the settings to make the site more attractive over time.
