Niagara Falls, NY (Fri.8/10-Sun.8/12)

Niagara...God showing off (right Bart?)

Has anyone done the Cave of the Winds before? – where you take an Elevator down to the bottom of the falls, then walk right to the edge of the falls. Not only do they give you a yellow rain coat but you get little paper-thin water sandals. This is the best way to fully experience the falls. On one section (the Hurricane Deck) the wind about knocks you over as the water pulses, with a punishing force. The boys loved it. The boys did more FULLY experience the falls as they didn't have their hoods pulled tight over them... After removing his rain coat, Levi was proud to show me that he found a dry spot (small section under one arm pit I believe).

When the boys have to go to the bathroom - “think about something else” doesn't really cut it at Niagara...

I snapped a picture of Elan after he was swept under water (while he was still happy)... or maybe it's through my Blue rain coat protecting the camera on the Made of the Mist
