Last Saturday we all woke up around 5am. We did all of the last minute packing, ie toothbrushes, hairbrushes, deodorant and tossed all the suitcases into the bag that we borrowed to go put in the back of the pick-up.
Have I mentioned how much i hate mornings! lol
Anyhoo, we drove to the Blue Water bridge in Port Huron and crossed over to Canada without any problems. Drove the 4 hours to get to Niagra Falls. I love the falls, so much to look at and the the views are just so breath taking.
First thing we did was head over to the Burger King to get a bite to eat since we all chose to skip breakfast and make our first destination. We arrived around 10:30ish.
This Burger King was attached to a haunted house hense the Frankenstein eating a whopper.
So after all of our belly's were full we heading right across the street to Ripley's Believe it or Not!
I totally recommend it! So much to see and do
Back end of the building
Frank, Darin and Amber waiting in line.
I took alot of pictures inside but I won't bore you all with those right now. I'm sure i will use some in future.
After Ripley's we walked down to the falls.

So after all of that, we headed back to our car and it was about 5:00pm ish...(yes i like using ish alot, lol) We got back on the road and crossed the canadian bridge to New York without any problems. Started our long drive thru New York and stopped a couple times, pee breaks and a dinner break, around 9:30pm (ish) we looked for a hotel and ended up somewhere in (Castonova?) New York on the thruway, we found a Days Inn and got a great room, relaxed and watched a little T.V. and went to bed. It was a good thing because about then I could barely see I was so tired!
Well this was the first day, I will write more later.
