Niagara Falls in Ontario, Canada

We have been in Arkansas with family a full day and today we took Harbor ice skating for the very first time! I know I will get behind on my posts with all the fun activities we are enjoying here, so I want to go ahead and document our trip to Niagara Falls.

Believe it or not, driving from our house in Michigan to the Falls in Ontario, Canada took less than four hours. When I say we live close to Canada, we really, truly do. The drive was smooth, though getting through customs was long. After being questioned, we were sent to Immigration, told to get out of our Jeep, and go wait in a waiting room while we were processed for a second time. I guess we looked suspicious. Harbor was in his pajamas with no shoes. Poor kid!

Once we were finally cleared, we enjoyed the drive along Lake Huron, up the coast, and into Niagara Falls. The weather was perfect at about 42 degrees. Cold enough to bundle up, but not cold enough to actually get cold.
The Falls were unbelievably gorgeous. They were breathtaking. Everyone says the best place to view Horseshoe Falls is in Canada, not New York. They weren't kidding! We had the best views.

It was a day to remember! I brought my tripod and we had a fun time taking photos.

Such a beautiful place!


  1. Wow--how neat! I'd love to see that! I'm amazed at how close you can get to the water. It kind-of made me nervous though! ha! Thanks for sharing the pictures!

  4. Yeah for Niagara falls the Canadian side. As a fellow Canadian we have gone there quite a bit with our kids. Just never yet in the winter time. Fall can be really pretty. We love that place. We have even had the opportunity of friends of ours from our home town going there to get married . Which was so breathtaking and like a fairytale wedding. Glad that you where able to see it . I love that place and can't wait to go back sometime
