The family had an unplanned visit to the Niagara Falls last Sunday. I had a full 8-hour shift at work that day and hubby and I had already planned what to have for dinner (by the time I get home). I even bought a bag of organic bok choy to go for that plan, but when I took my lunch, I received an SMS from hubby saying that Tita Bambi and Kevin wants us all to go to Niagara Falls to watch the fireworks. So okay, I thought, but then I realized that I would be very tired by then, but what the heck. It is Niagara Falls, one of the world’s famous places to visit.
So after I got out from work at around 6:30, I went home straight (completely forgetting that I bought bok choy) so that we can leave immediately. When I got home, the boys were not yet ready, I had to dress them up and hubby had to dress up too. Good thing the weather was fine that day and so we had no trouble in dressing up. We then cramped ourselves in Kevin’s car and headed to Niagara to see the majestic waterfalls and the fireworks. The travel was about an hour and a half and it was a smooth ride, there were no throwing up from Bogs (thanks to the anti-motion sickness medicine he took before the ride) and Job fell asleep after about 25 minutes. We managed through the traffic in the highway and hubby and I were in awe as we passed by lush greens and grape farms and of course the beautiful scenery. Since it is summer and the sun was still shining even at almost 9 in the evening, we were still able to see Niagara (at dusk) when we arrived.
Hubby and I immediately took the little boys by the viewing area and took some photos of the nice and beautiful waterfalls. It was truly worth the visit. We then headed back to the park where we were seated and had some pizza for our dinner and by 10 pm, the fireworks started. It was a bit short but it was nice and when it was done, everyone cheered and clapped their hands.
These are my boys just before the sunset at the Niagara Falls:
After the fireworks, we packed up and got home 30 minutes past 12 and the little boys were all so sleepy and tired and was hubby and I. It was a very good experience, thanks to Tita Bambi and Kevin but we will be coming back to Niagara by the end of August for our first ever family camp here so hopefully, we can take more photos of this wonderful creation.
