The Falls in the fall.

We had a trip to Niagara Falls recently to visit my dh's mother. She is elderly, not as healthy as we would like her to be and we needed the boys to see her. So we flew out to see her and visited Canada and many other sites. The best for me was the Butterfly Sanctuary. I got so many beautiful pics and really enjoyed being there. Of course ds19 would not set foot inside. He has been terrified for many years of any creature that flutters, moths, bees, butterflies, you name it. TERRIFIED. Running screaming wildly terrified. We ate out at many different restaurants, namely; Planet Hollywood, Montana, The Keg, Bob Evans and many others. I ate way too much but really enjoyed it. Mil was doing ok. She could be healthier, we do worry about her being alone and winter coming. She is resistant to moving closer and dh's job necessitates us being here. The Falls were of course majestic and beautiful. I think every American should visit at least once. There is nothing like it on our planet. The weather was interesting, rain and snow and down to the 30's. I was frozen most of the time; the locals thought I was weird in my mittens, scarf, and heavy coat. They thought the weather was fine. Of course, dh is not affected either! Poor ds13 had tons of school work to do, but he finished it and did a very good job! I am proud of his accomplishments and that he completed what was required. He is okay! I happily came home to 95 degrees here in SoCal and happily also was able to scrap los of the Falls. I only took about 500 pics in 6 days, but hey, I could have taken more!
