This year, for our family vacation, we went to Ontario, Canada to Niagara Falls. On the way up there, we stopped at Alexandria Bay, New York, and took a boat tour of the Thousand Islands on St. Lawrence River. We saw a lot of castles, mansions, and several other unique buildings, including a small general store 🙂
Suzanne and Caleb during the boat tour:
Heart Island (Boldt Castle)
Boldt Yacht House
A cool victorian home 🙂
The smallest Island on Saint Lawrence river 🙂
Here’s a fun fact: There are exactly 1,864 islands on that river.
That evening, we headed to Ontario, Canada, to the place where we were staying for the weekend.
We stopped at Swiss Chalet and ate a wonderful dinner there. Suzanne and I shared our meal, because… well, as you can see… There was a lot to eat 😉
Naomi and Ruth holding their “Shirley Temple” drink’s… maybe that what you do when you’re a fan of Shirley Temple?
On Saturday and Sunday, we were at Niagara Falls in Canada.
Fall is our favorite time of year to go on family trips because we get to see the changing leaves 🙂
This skydiving looked super fun! We’ve both been skydiving before and would love to do it again- I think this would be the perfect place to do it 😉
Maid of the Mist boat tours
Journey Behind the Falls
One of the biggest highlights was the evening when we got to see Niagara at Night.
Ride across the rapids
White Water Board Walk
Back at the cottage that we were staying at. I got to have my own bedroom – so unusual 😉
Several more pictures of the Falls
This past Sunday our family went up to Middle Creek wildlife center. We love going to this place every fall because it is an awesome place to go hiking and the fall colors and leaves are just glorious.
So, I thought I would share some of the pictures we took. Enjoy!!
Playing in all the leaves that were there was so much fun for us all, as we don’t have many leaves here at our place…
Some of the beautiful views…
More of the handsome people in my family.
Kathy with chicken pox and all…
I got to carry this big guy around. He did amazing though, sleeping most of the time we were hiking…
Caleb has some of the most hilarious expressions…
Well, there you have a little glimpse of what we might do on a beautiful fall day. I hope you all are having an amazing fall. Enjoy it to the fullest because before you know it winter will be here.
Have a fabulous week…

Hello again! It’s been a little while since I blogged….
A couple weeks ago we went on a family vacation to Virginia and the Creation Museum in Kentucky. We had been wanting to take a trip to the Creation Museum for a while. This was the longest tip we have ever done all together as a family. We had originally been planning to visit Faith Mission on our way down, but those plans fell through when my little brother Caleb got the chicken pox a couple days before we left. But then we got to enjoy the view from Skyline Drive. We had such a wonderful time together.
And now here are some of the pictures. I will kinda let them speak for themselves.
Some chickens gone loose at a stop (not ours though)
Stopping for breakfast in the town of Front Royal in Virginia
Then we were ready for the mountains! We saw lots of gorgeous views!
On top of the world!! 🙂
Getting ready to take a family picture
And the finished product!!
The most amazing parents in the world!(and that’s my opinion.)
Later that day we got to hike down to see a 70 foot waterfall!!
And another family picture by the falls.
And then the long hike back up
That’s it for now! Part two is coming soon 🙂
Have a wonderful week, folks.
I’m assuming you know that it’s already October, so I won’t remind you of the fact.
But I just wanted to drop in and tell y’all “Happy October!”
