We continued our Grand Tour in Buffalo. Yes, Buffalo.
First stop? Why, the Buffalo and Erie County Naval and Military Park, of course!
The next day we went to Niagara Falls:
We rode the Maid of the Mist:
And pretended to be a family of serial killers:
My daughter was especially perky before the boat started heading towards the falls.
The serial killer get-ups can only do so much as you go through this:
Here’s that perky girl post-deluge:
There were rainbows everywhere:
We continued with the serial killer theme in the Cave of the Winds:
You have to admit, that’s one very stylish family right there.
The last place we visited was the Albright-Knox Art Gallery. This impressive building houses an eclectic collection of modern and contemporary art:
At the end of the week, we compared notes and discussed what our favorite part of the vacation was. For everyone, except me, it was seeing Niagara Falls.
“My favorite part was when we were driving in the car, taking turns picking songs, and singing them at the top of our lungs,” I said.
My husband looked at me as if I was crazy, and it’s very possible that I am. But for me, it wasn’t so much about the destination as the journey itself and the people I shared it with.
