Arrival In New York/Niagara Falls

So onto our New York trip.....
We left on Thurs. June 27th at 7:30 am. We flew into Detroit, Michigan and from there, flew to Buffalo, New York. We were picked up from the airport by Grandpa and Grandma K and headed for Niagara Falls.
It was a little rainy but we were still able to walk around and enjoy it.

I think Sophia had more fun playing with the umbrella than looking at the falls.

You can travel down to the bottom but it's super wet  and you have to pay for that (they give you these slickers and special shoes to wear). We were fine with the free portion.


This is Goat Island.
And this is the bridge to Goat Island.

Sophia got her umbrella taken away because she kept accidentally hitting us with it.

We decided to cross the bridge and head to Goat Island.


The water was amazingly powerful. The last time were here was in December 1998 and a lot of it was frozen and we were too.

We did see some ducks hanging out in a more calm part of the river.

"No more pictures mom!"

After Niagara, we headed towards Olean, NY which is about 2 hours away. After stopping for dinner, I think we ended up arriving at their house around 7 pm. It was a very long day, but we were glad we got to see Niagara, even if it rained off and on. The temps were amazing...low 80's.
