Aboard the Maid of the Mist! These ponchos did not smell so nice on such a hot a humid day. We were tempted not to wear them for a few reasons, but one being, the "mist" was much needed!

This picture just makes me laugh. Hard. I asked Mark to take a picture of us (because his arms are much longer than mine) and his face is so serious! Not frame worthy, but I couldn't not post this one!

She was very interested in what was going on! The closer we got to the falls, the tighter her grip but, she's 2! She enjoyed the mist, until it was more than a mist! :)

A little scary taking these next few pictures. We we soaking wet, it was slippery, the boat was in motion, and I was taking pictures with a $300 extremely slippery phone. I'm happy to report, the phone did not jump ship!

Getting closer to the horseshoe! We eventually were right in the middle of it! I was not very eager to keep the camera out of my pocket. Also, isn't he handsome?

I was brave to take this shot! Doesn't capture what we experienced, but it's a great reminder! We couldn't help but talk about what the Indians must have thought when they heard the falls....obviously, they didn't know what they were in for!

Mark it down! Ethan's first bar AND beer! Ok, maybe he didn't really have a beer, it was a prop. However, I don't think I cleaned the top off well enough. He made quite the face when he tasted the remains! Someday Ethan, you won't make that face!
