Niagara Falls/ Buffalo Trip

Over the weekend, Kaitlyn became an international traveler.  We arrived in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada on Friday afternoon.  After Kaitlyn had a short nap, we took a walk to the Clifton Park area, rode the Ferris Wheel, had dinner at the Rainforest Cafe, then saw the Falls at night…

Just in case anyone needs a present idea for me in the future, this Hershey Store sells a 5 pound Hershey bar…  It should last me a week :-)Imported Photos 00718

On Saturday, we walked along the Promenade by the Falls.   We also took the Behind the Falls tour… Imported Photos 00732 Imported Photos 00740  Imported Photos 00752 

During the summer months on the Behind the Falls tour, you can see the water falling.  However, during the winter it gets iced over.  You can see the huge chunks of ice behind Kevin and Kaitlyn.

Kaitlyn enjoyed coloring at lunch.

  We had dinner at the Brazilian Steakhouse in our hotel.  It was really good!Imported Photos 00762

 

On Sunday, we headed back to the U.S.  We stopped in Niagara Falls State Park and saw the Falls from the U.S. side.  Then we stopped at the Niagara Aquarium before heading on to Buffalo and the Pirates game…  Imported Photos 00777  Imported Photos 00783  Imported Photos 00785 Imported Photos 00802

Kaitlyn loved running around and making new friends…Imported Photos 00798Imported Photos 00795Imported Photos 00797Kaitlyn’s favorite was the penguins.  She ran back and forth in front of their window following them.  When one stopped, she’d stop too and wave at it…Imported Photos 00791 Imported Photos 00792 Imported Photos 00794She loved the Penguins so much, we had to get her a little stuffed one at the gift store.  They are now practically inseparable…        Imported Photos 00804 Imported Photos 00805

The Pirates lost, but Kaitlyn still had fun banging on the glass!Imported Photos 00808The coolest part was when we ran into the team in our hotel lobby after the game!  We even rode the elevator with Jeff Cowan!

We had a great trip and can’t wait until the next game!
