Spring Break Part 1-Niagara Falls

We started our trip with a night in Niagara Falls. We left home and went into Canada in Port Huron. We arrived mid day on the first day to Niagara and stayed on the Canadian side. We had a beautiful hotel room that was overlooking the falls. The kids loved it. It was cold and even snowed that evening while we were enjoying the pool. 
This is the view from the room.

Riley loved the bathtub.
 It was cold and wet out there! I love how the wet spots are right on their faces.

Hershey store visit #2 (the first is the Chicago store, as they are trying to get to all of them)

Dinner overlooking the falls.

Clifton Hill area (Riley loved this area and took a ton of pictures!)

Carter finding something fun to do while Riley took pictures.
Breakfast overlooking the falls
After breakfast, we headed to the border and got back into the U.S. We drove to Long Island, New York to spend the night before heading into the big city!

Riley participated in the Math Pentathlon program again this year. She would stay after school every Monday to play math games! The final component of the program is the Game Day which is what my pictures are from.
