Niagara Falls

I wanted to thank you all for coming back each and every week and reading my little blog and leaving such wonderful comments.. I apologize for being so disconnected these past few weeks.. I love visiting all of your blogs and catching up with you and I haven't been able to do so :(

In September we took a little weekend trip to Canada. The plan was to leave in the afternoon and drive the eight something hours so that we could get there at night and be able to wake up bright and early the next day and start the seeing.. well the afternoon turned to evening and driving at night was harder than we had anticipated. We got to the hotel (Marriott Courtyard) around three instead of the planned midnight and hurried off to sleep.

We started the morning with a delicious breakfast at the Blue Line Diner. It is owned by the oh so nice daughter of a famous hockey player, Marcel Dionne. The place is a hockey fans dream and the breakfast yum, huge portions and the coffee divine. If you don't believe me ask H.


The rest of the day we spent enjoying the beautiful falls..





the maid of the mist


We had lunch at Antica Pizzeria and the pizza's were delicious.. dinner at the Sandstone Grill was less awesome, despite the raving reviews they over cooked our steaks and when we asked them about it they said they were cooked exactly how we had requested. Their complimentary bread which was stuffed with cheese on the other hand was omg! But dry steaks is a real appetite killer.

we ended the night by watching the fireworks right from our hotel window!

  5. Aw what nice pictures! Even though I live in Canada (the Vancouver end), I've never been to the falls! Cool that you got to go to a restaurant with a hockey connection :)

    More importantly: your kids are the CUTEST! Wanna pinch them! That little bear ears hoodie helps matters...

  7. I've never been to The Falls, but I would love to make that trip one day.
    I was disconnected from blogging for a long while, and I still haven't had the chance to visit some of my favorites as much as I like, but I'm glad you had some great time with family making memories. That's what matters!

    Have a good week,

  8. Oh how fun! Niagara Falls is beautiful! I'm sure fall is just amazing there. I think must go to that hotel immediately. I'm a huge Kings' fan and therefore a Marcel Dionne fan. Love it!
