We just got home from a great vacation to upstate New York and Niagara Falls. We drove to Corning first, where we saw the glass museum and took a glass-blowing class. (very cool) Then we spent a few days in Palmyra, and saw all the sites there. We especially loved the Hill Cumorah and the Sacred Grove. They were wonderful!
From there we drove about 2 hours to Niagara Falls. We spent a half-day on the US side, and did a tour that took us next to the falls in several places.
Here is a photo of Jack getting wet on the boat. Thank goodness for our free "souvenir" raincoats. We got very wet!
This was both Leo and Jack's first trip to Canada, although it felt like we were still in the US when we were there. Every vendor took US or Canadian dollars, and it looked like any other touristy town in the States. Oh well. One of these days we'll make it to Montreal or Ontario, and see the real Canada.
We did hear lots of people speaking French, which was fun for me. I started speaking a little French to Leo... he would just look at me and say "What you talking about Mommy?" It was so cute.
