New York Trip- Niagra Falls

Our New York trip was full of fun.
Here are some pictures from our Niagra Falls day.

There was a little spot about 100 meters from the falls on the American side where the Niagra river had rapids and then a little pool of calm water. Here is Benjamin cooling off in the Niagra river! It was REALLY REALLY hot. The theme of the day was to find water. We loved to be under the mist of the falls, pour water on each other, and dip our feet in the cool water.
Every time I go to the falls I am amazed at the beauty of this place.
What an awesome, creative God we serve!

Grandpa and Benjamin - what a pair!
Benjamin wanted nothing to do with taking a picture all day.
All he wanted to do was get to the water.
Canada has beautiful parks along the falls.
Benjamin and Tanner loved the large parks to run around.

Anita and I were buddies today! I just love my neice!
We are on the maid of the mist taking one last picture before we get so close to the falls the cameras get too wet. It was so wonderful to get drenched. It felt great! Benjamin was really hot and tired by this point. He made it the whole day without a nap! He crashed when we got back to the car and did not wake up until 12 hours later.
There are seagulls flying all around the falls. One of them did some business in the sky and it landed on Hunter. It was the perfect way to end the day. We all laughed so hard.
Near the end of the day these really large rainbows were everywhere.
It was so beautiful!
