Niagara Falls & Lewiston, NY | A Family Adventure!

This past weekend was AMAZING! We roadtripped up to Niagara Falls, and had a wonderful little family getaway!  I shared here about the start of some of our adventures, but we hadn’t seen the Falls yet and I hadn’t pulled out my camera, so here are all the pictures!!  We saw the falls on a gorgeous fall morning, (the leaf colors up there are INCREDIBLE!!) and then we went back late at night to see it all lit up! Oh man was it beautiful!  And then yesterday morning before leaving, we got the car all packed up and drove about 10 minutes to get to the border of Lake Ontario, the skyline of Toronto, and Old Fort Niagara, the old French fort built to protect France’s interests back when this area was “New France”.  Then we went back to the Falls for one more peek, and a chance to walk out onto the observation deck to see a view of both the American and Horseshoe Falls at the same time!

The kids did incredible on the drive home, we only had to stop once to feed them and once to feed us (at Krispy Kreme!), and made it back home in time for some wonderful friends to cook us dinner (we traded dinner for donuts, who would pass that offer up?!) Here’s some pictures from our adventure, enjoy!

p.s. Yes, I’ve already told Guillaume that he must take me back, our hotel experience at the Barton Hill Hotel & Spa was seriously incredible and I’m a little excited about the day we get to go back just the two of us for a little vacation without the babies!


Look at the colors!!  And this adorable Main Street! I fell in love!

One of my favorites!  That’s our hotel all blurred out in the background…

The Underground Railroad Memorial we could see from our hotel window

The Barton Lewis hotel, and those GORGEOUS leaves!  And gorgeous little benches you could sit on and stare across the river at Canada!  So peaceful2014-11-10_00182014-11-10_00192014-11-10_0020

If you look really really hard, you can see the Toronto skyline…2014-11-10_00212014-11-10_00222014-11-10_00232014-11-10_00242014-11-10_0025
