Niagara Falls

This past weekend I went on a girls weekend to Niagara Falls. It was such a blast!

I met my 3 friends there who I have been friends with for 3 years. We have kids the same age. It was sort of a "middle point" for us. Although, I had the longest drive. But it was well worth it!

I got there late Thursday. We had dinner at a Mexican restaurant and hung out.

Friday was rain....what are a group of girls to do??? SHOP!!! There was an Outlet mall, so we spent the day there.
They had some really cool circus like people walking around.


Saturday was our sight seeing day. Off to the Falls we went! I cannot explain how gorgeous they are. Seriously, breathtaking.



While there, we went on the Maid of the Mist boat. It gets us right up close to the Falls!

See those boats down there...............

And the boat close to the Falls.............
YUP.....that is what we were headed on!

Before getting on you need to get on an elevator to bring you down!
This picture is crooked, but it shows it!
They then give you rain ponchos to stay dry!
Here are the Falls up close!



We went back to the hotel to change and get ready for dinner at the Hard Rock. It was fun. Music, food and drinks!
We did have 2 nights out hanging out at a local bar. We had a great time. For some odd reason I attracted the old men or the ones who were drunk.
This man tried to tell me that he lost a bunch of money at the casino, but moments later told me how they wouldn't let him in the casino because he had a dirty ID...HUH?!?!?!


Sunday we were all up and out early for the long ride home. I had 6.5 hours.....but it was well worth it!

Wait until I tell you what my souvenir was!!!! I will post that tomorrow!
