A visit from Grandma and a quick trip to Niagra





We had a nice visit with Grandma Clark a few weekends ago, and we were able to drive into Canada to see Niagra falls while she was here. It's only about a 4 1/2 hour drive from where we live, so we just did it on a whim and only stayed one night. It was a lot of fun to be with Grandma and see such an amazing feat of nature! I have to admit, I was so nervous to let Jacy get anywhere near the water! Daxton, I wasn't really concerned about. He's has such a nervous personality, I knew he wouldn't have wanted to get near it, and I was right. Jacy would have gone head first over the edge if we had taken our eyes off of her for two seconds. She is CRAZY! There was an indoor water park across the street from the hotel we stayed at, and we took the kids there on the night we arrived. It was really fun, and I wish that I had taken pictures, but alas, I'm not gifted in this area, and I took not a single one. You'll just have to take my word for it that it was a dream come true for any kid, and Ben too! Thanks for the visit Grandma!

I love the way you guys explore and always take advantage of the place you are living. Michigan is a big leap from Florida, but seems to have fun great things to do as well. Glad you guys are there and settled. Hope things are going good. :)

Hi Jenny, I just found your blog through your parents' blog, it's so fun to see what you guys are up to! Good luck in your new home! We were in the mid-west for a while (Indiana) I totally feel your pain on the smoking thing, we ended up going out to eat a lot less!

I'm glad you guys had fun! I think there were like 10 families from our ward at Niagara at some point in April. It's the place to be. :)

Your kids are SO big! And you guys are always doing such fun things. I appreciate that feat now that I have my own kiddo - it's a lot of work to go ANYWHERE. Cutest little family!

So fun to have visitors! Are you glad you made the move??? I have been meaning to tell you that the email I had for Stephanie doesn't work...so I can't figure out anyone's blogs. I am bummed. I want to keep trying though! do you have any trips to midway planned soon? Our house will be done the 12th and we hope to be up there lots:) LMK

I'm jealous of your visit to Niagra. Looks really cool. I'd probably be more like Daxton. The heights combined with the water=anxiety.
