Niagara Falls, Part One

December 16, 2013

I’m still long overdue in writing and sharing about my Fall Trip across the country. I went to spend my brother’s birthday with him as I hadn’t celebrated a birthday with him since he turned 18, and he turned 35 this year.

My sister-in-love and I had secretly planned this trip to Niagara Falls as his birthday present. On his actual birthday Elika gave him a certificate good “for one weekend away.” Little did he know the weekend was already planned. The week after his birthday, she and I waltzed into his work two hours before quitting time and threw the certificate in front of him and said we were cashing it in. His boss stepped around the corner and said “yep, they’ve cleared everything thru me…you’re out of here!” And off we went!

We stayed in a hotel right near the Falls and even were blessed enough to have a Falls View room!

It was nighttime by the time we arrived so we got checked into our room, explored the hotel a bit, found our way over to the Falls for the next day, and got to sleep so we could wake up early and start our journey at Niagara Falls!

Stayed tuned tomorrow for pics and details of the rest of our weekend!
