Last weekend we headed North to NY to go to the Hill Cumorah Pageant and see Niagara Falls. We drove about 6 long hours - made even longer because every 1/2 hour the boys would ask us when we would get there. I don't know how or why my parents ever went on road trips with us because I am sure we did the same thing.... and there weren't DVD players that make the trip somewhat bearable.
The boys were pretty impressed with the Falls, although Gabe was terrified about riding on the boat due to being traumatized by a previous canoe trip (see June 2009). He cried and moped most of the boat ride. After it was over he kept exclaiming that he had so much fun and wanted to go on the boat again. Selective memory I guess. Ben loved it. The water freaked him out a little and he tends to be a bit of a worrier, but he handled it like a trooper. Stood by the railing the whole time. I think that amazement won over fear.
