Crazy Weekend #2 (in Canada)....

Last weekend (5/8 - 5/10), my brother was in a wedding in Buffalo, NY. So, the rest of the family went, too.

We also made our way up to Niagra. It was a fairly quick trip, but fun, nonetheless.

Our view from the hotel room....

We went on "Maid of the Mist." It's a boat ride that takes you right to the base of the Falls (or, as close as you can get).

Mom and Jeff......

The American side of the Falls....

Yeah, I couldn't get a picture of the Canadian side. I was too busy being blown around by the "rain" and wind. Our Captain took us right into the action.... I could barely see, much less take pictures, lol. It was a lot of fun, though.

We also took a drive up to Toronto. This is one of the views from the top of the CN Tower.

Their baseball stadium has a retractable roof! It was closed when we got up there. Then, it started opening up!

They also have a glass bottom floor. As you can see, I didn't really trust it......

Jeff clearly had full trust in the glass.

They have a place where you can go outside. Excuse my windblown look. It was really friggin windy, lol.

My family loves to go on Duck Tours whereever they go. If you've never heard of them... their tour buses that can also go in water. So, you get the standard tour of the city, then they splash into the river/lake and you get a tour of the harbour. SO fun.

Well, Toronto has Hippo Tours!
