    I’m back (finally)

    No Comments

    Well, technically I got back a week ago, but it was harder getting caught up on work and family and church responsibilities then I thought.

    As we often do in the late winter or early spring, we headed down to Florida. We rented a house for two weeks and went to Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, Busch Gardens, Seaworld, and Aquatica numerous times. At some point in the next couple of weeks I’ll post some more thoughts (I’ve done this in the past) on what Niagara Falls can and can’t do to meet the Orlando standards.

    Regular posting will resume now…

    Happy Easter (and I hope to be back soon!)

    Good morning everyone. I hope you are enjoying a fun Easter with your family. Even if you don’t celebrate Easter, go ahead and have some good chocolate 🙂

    I’ve been away for more than two weeks in Florida on a much needed vacation. It has been awesome! We went to Disney, Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, and just generally enjoyed the sun and warmth. We’re still not home yet, but it seems that there is snow at home?! Sigh 🙁

    I apologize once again for my lack of posting. It has been a very busy winter for me. I’m starting to see the light at the end of this, so I hope to be back to regular blogging soon. Thanks so much to Dan for posting some in my absence.

    Travel bugs: Falling for the Falls (October 22nd)

    No Comments

    Someone with a Blogger blog posted about a recent trip to Niagara Falls:

    Once in Niagara we found a hotel room a couple of blocks from Clifton Hill and the Falls themselves. Now if mention of Niagara Falls conjures up images of romance and classy rendezvous, it was rather shocking to see the Falls as backdrop to Clifton Hill, a cheesy replica of something from an amusement park. It strongly reminded Shannon of Universal Studios or Disneyland. Her exact words “It doesn’t fit the image of Niagara Falls. The two don’t go together.” Only in Clifton Hill would you see a pirate flag on top of the House of Frankenstein.
