I love day trips, really love them, and today I packed up Reece and his little homeschool friend and we headed to Niagara Falls for the day. We walked the falls, taking in the view from many different spots, and getting a little wet as the wind changed direction and blew the mist to shower down over us. We laughed at our luck, and then realized just how refreshing it was on a hot summer morning.
After visiting the falls we enjoyed a little lunch and then hit the spot we came to see...The Butterfly Conservatory. I really enjoy our visits to this place, and today was no exception. We were in awe as we walked inside and had the opportunity to get up and close and personal with so many beautiful butterflies. It truly is a magical place, and even though we have visited three times over the years, it never gets old. There is just something so very special about being in the presence of such elegant and beautiful creatures. There was a lot of stopping and observing as we made our way through the conservatory, and I loved watching as Reece and his friend discover each and every butterfly.
We stayed as long as we could, and then said a final farewell to the butterflies and began our trek home. Day trips can be long, and they are always just a little tiring, but they are also perfect in so many ways, and I am already busy planning the next one.
