Anniston y el Pato!!!

The other day we decided to take Anniston over to feed the ducks. As with all animals, Anniston is really friendly and likes to wave and say "Hi". Well, that's what she did with this particular duck and it reached up and bit her finger. How mean!!! It was SO Funny though. Adam yelled at the top of his lungs and quickly scared it away ... and ... I laughed and laughed and laughed! Anniston just stood amused at all the happenings.
What cuties...and I mean the two in the back!!!

Aunty Tara...

Adam's sister, Tara, recently returned home from her mission in Argentina. She had never met Anniston before, so...as soon as she got home, she boarded another flight to Pennsylvania to come and visit us! It was so much fun having her with us! Thanks for the visit Tara...we miss you! We went up to Little Pine Creek State Park and had a barbeque with our friends the Nickle's. Here is Aunty Tara with Anniston and Janell with Chloe. (The two little ones are only 11 days apart in age and they love playing with each other!)
Here's our beautiful little one eating Spaghetti on her own for the first time! She did a great job and didn't make too big of a mess!

Niagara Falls!!!

A couple of weeks ago we went to Niagara Falls, both the American and Canadian sides...and it was Awesome! We woke up at 3:30 in the morning, met 2 other couples, loaded up in a 15 passenger van and started on our 4 hour journey! The kids slept most of the way there and back, so that was really nice. We spent all day there and arrived back home at 1:30am.

This is a picture of us standing in front of Horseshoe Falls...named that way because it looks like a big horseshoe (go figure!). It is located on the Canadian side of the border.
American FallsThis a different picture of Horseshoe falls...and that little boat down there - Yep, we went on it! We got a little wet, but it was amazing being so close to the falls and seeing them from a different perspective.
A view from The Maid of the Midst (the boat ride).
We also went on a little excursion called Cave of the Winds. We were able to walk down right next to the American Falls. It was a blast...we came out really wet, but it was worth it. Plus, we ended up getting these niffty panchos (which we threw away after) and some cool Niagara Falls water shoes.
We also went to an aquarium while we were there! Here's my hubby getting his head bit off by a mean and ferocious looking shark!!!
I thought this picture was so cute. It's all the kids in our little group. Chloe, Anniston, Avery, Jerom, Emilee and Joey!
Lunch Break! This is my only picture with the whole group. They are all so much fun!
Niagara Falls was Beautiful and we were able to do lots of fun things. For any of you that haven't been there...I would definitely recommend it!!!

While on our road trip we passed a lot of billboards, but this was one of our favorites...if you can't read it - it says:
"Keep using my name in vain, I'll make rush hour longer."
So, for all of you that may use His name in vain, PLEASE stop! Not only is it one of the Ten Commandments - but I hate rush hour traffic!!!
