Our Star Spangled Adventure Day Forty-Three

Wednesday, July 4th, Day Forty-Three:

There is so much to write about today….yet, I am not sure we really “did” much. :)

Highlights, chronologically speaking:

We found that some of us were actually more comfortable than others sleeping in the car. :)

We found it is easier to clean-up and leave a campsite if you never actually get out of the car. :)

We also found that if you sleep in a car with your clothes on, you wake up already dressed for the day. :)

We stopped by Dunkin Donuts for morning juice and yucky coffee. :/

We visited the Shrine of the North American Martyrs in Auriesville, New York.










The round church is quite interesting, with a round altar, so that there are actually three altars all together.






Our first views of Niagara Falls.......


...the American Falls & Bridal Veil Falls from above........and Horseshoe Falls.......too

Here are the kids, after the fireworks show over the Falls
.......cool, huh? :)
Their personalities just shine right through, don't ya think? :)

...oh, man....I have run out of time....... :/

I love that photo, too,Suzanne! I another one very similar, coming up in a day or two (on the trip, not literally :)). You wil love it, too.

Mark, for some strange reason, I could not get pictures to post from Anne's laptop...I was surely hoping to post photos as we traveled.........ah, well, I am trying to finish up with photos.......and then I will do some backtracking, with photos AND journaling.....you may have noticed a few "blank" journaling days!

We are coming down to D-land in Sept.....maybe your family could join us one day. What say you?

Happy one day late birthday to your mom!

Alice, we missed WAY MORE than we got to see and experience!!! :) Especially YOU!!

Love,
chari

Oh, how I love Niagara Falls, and that silhouette of the children is beautiful. I would use that as my Christmas card photo!
