Ontario 2007- Day Two

Day two was full of memories and tourism (my favourite). We woke and had a fabulous continental breakfast at the hotel then changed and made our way to Niagara Falls.
Our sweet rental car.

Our hotel in St Catherines. On our way...... Right near the falls is Clifton Hill which is basically a year-round circus on a street! Lots of wax museums, the WWF Museum, Guinness Book Of World Records Museum, Mini Golf the Sky Wheel and lots more!
Right in front of the American Falls.......
The American Falls.

A great shot that Jen took for us!
Another shot.........
The mist was so heavy that when we drove passed the falls we had to turn our windshield wipers on. It was like it was pouring rain. You can see how wet the street was in this picture.
The edge.Trev and I decided to brave the wall of water and walk the rest of the walkway to the falls and it was a tad wet, as you can tell. It was quite literally like someone had thrown a bucket of water on us.
A black and white shot.
The world tallest man.......and Trev sitting in his chair.
On a Harley Davidson.
This is the Ripley's Believe it or Not Museum. Really cool building.
Trev with Forrest Gump at the Wax Museum.
Me and Ace Ventura.
The Sky Wheel.......this is actually where Darryl proposed.
At the top of the Sky Wheel. It was like a really luxurious ferris wheel.
A GREAT self-portrait.
And Glow-in-the-dark mini golf. We were supposed to have met the wedding party for lunch but it never ended up happening so we got the whole afternoon to ourselves.
Enough said.........Mmmm.
Our one commitment of the day was the rehearsal dinner that was held at the same venue as the reception. All of the gals.....Top row from left: Karen (grooms sister and bridesmaid), Christine (bridesmaid), Jen (best man's wife), Erica (groom's sister-in-law), Me.
Bottom row from left: Lindsay (bride), Jenny (maid-of-honor), Sarah (bridesmaid), Jennifer (bridesmaid), Amanda (bridesmaid and brides cousin). I feel to blessed to have been able to meet them all. They were SO sweet and genuine.The grooms family.
Trev and I with the bride and groom.
After the dinner and a couple hours spent decorating we went back to the falls to catch their Christmas light display that was very impressive to say the least.

A cool light fountain.
This one's for our little nephew Jacob who LOVES Tow-Mater..........
And my favourite, Winnie-the Pooh.
We also went back to the falls and braved the water again to catch it lit up with lots of giant spotlights that were actually powered by the falls themselves. None of the pictures worked unfortunately. Afterwards we went back to the hotel and I crashed while Trev went to hang out with the boys. The big day is tomorrow!
