Family Road Trip

While planning a July visit to Ohio to see Thom's family, we mapped out the distance to Niagara Falls and realized it was only a little over three hours. We are pretty budget-minded as we are in the adoption process and had not planned a big vacation this year. However, this seemed like the perfect getaway with the kids. So we booked a night at a hotel on the Canadian side (for the novelty of actually staying in Canada), packed plenty of picnic food and snacks, and hit the road for a whirlwind trip. We had so much fun and the  falls did not disappoint!
