New York trip

This past weekend we made a trip up to the Buffalo, NY area to go snowboarding with Brett’s sister and brother-in-law, and to see the Niagara Falls. We had an awesome time – we lucked out with the weather,  no one got hurt, and it was great to get out of the city for a while!

We were almost the only tourists at the Falls on Saturday morning. I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised that it is not a tourist draw in the dead of winter! Most of the close observation decks were closed due to the snow and ice, but I was able to get a few good pictures.

I tried to get a picture of the rainbow, not sure if you can see it too well.

We’ll have to go back when the weather is warmer and ride the Maid of the Mist.

We spent the rest of the weekend snowboarding at Holiday Valley.

I have lots of cooking and baking planned for this weekend, so hopefully there will be a few recipe posts next week!

    • I know! That’s kind of why we wanted to ride it. It’s pretty cool that they filmed the wedding with tourists on board the ship!
