All of those archery lessons paid off! Look who got the bullseye! Too bad no money was on the line.

Guess if I were so excited that you would have THOUGHT money was on the line. Took all the photos from all the angles.

Including one of me! :) It was weird. No one else was as excited as I was, though. Maybe they even thought it was weird that I took pictures.

Mary Does Research

Mary loves The Magic School Bus. Her favorite character is DA, who is the smart girl in the class. Mary now uses her catch phrase.

Vittoria the Mimic

Somewhat dated now, but Vittoria will repeat what you say.

Cedar Point

The similarities to Rhoda's trip to Cedar Point are eerie.


Our belated additions to the picture festival from Estes Park.

Dragon Boat Racing

I went dragon boat racing with the CRP group. That was pretty fun. I had never done that.

There is a person who sits at the front and bangs on a drum so that your paddles enter the water at the same time. You can see the leaves are starting to turn.

There were two boats and after we had learned how to paddle and what not we raced against another group of CRPers. Our boat won both times. :)

One Point for Canada

We had a great time at Niagara Falls.

We rode Maid of the Mist and this woman was behind us in line. She acted like the water was going to stop flowing and she would miss the spectacle if she didn't get in front of us. We had fun with that. Well, I did, anyway.

On Maid of the Mist were were in the waterfall for a LONG time and got soaked. I wondered what Vittoria was thinking the whole time. Katie loved it. Mary crawled under MK's poncho and stayed there the whole time.

Katie thought it would be fun to go on top of the Skylon Tower. She was right. We had brunch up top and got to enjoy the view. That was pfun.

The gentleman on the way down to Maid of the Mist said there was up to two meters of regression each year. That means since the last time I went 10 meters (almost 11 yards), which seems like a lot to me. I thought it looked the same. :)
