Niagara Falls Babymoon and Anniversary

Since God is so good at planning miracles (such as the little girl in my belly) we were able to combine our 5 year wedding anniversary and babymoon to make one amazing trip this weekend!



We left on Saturday morning and enjoyed a scenic three hour drive to Niagara Falls.



It may be a little pathetic, but one of my favorite things about this weekend was that we had no phone access while we were in Canada. I didn't really want to go through the trouble of getting an international plan for one night, so we just turned our phones off, instead! It was blissful to be unreachable, I've got to tell you.


View from our room!

We had a beautiful falls-view hotel room with a whirlpool. The two person whirlpool was complete heaven after a long day of walking around the falls! We floated around in there for about an hour. I think we may need to get one of those for home.




We took the self guided "behind the falls" tour that day. It was really neat (and wet)!




The weather couldn't have been better for us this weekend. 77 degrees and sunny. We really didn't mind getting all that wet during the tour. It felt good!




After the tour, we went to dinner at the falls-view restaurant. I had a 4 cheese and proscuitto stuffed chicken cordon bleu and Nick had rack of lamb. Both entrees were out of this world amazing. I am drooling just thinking about it.




Once we finished dinner, we went for an evening stroll. The falls were lit up and the weather was nice with a warm breeze. We explored the town a bit, listening to live bands as we passed different bars. It was a really relaxing evening!




This trip, while short, was extra special. Knowing this was our last getaway before our baby arrives, and even having her there with us during it, created a feeling and closeness that I never want to forget!

  2. Since we moved to New York we aren't that far away and I really want to go but I need to change my last name on my passport.
