In a former life (before being married with kids) I was quite the traveler. However, it has been many years since I have been able to really plan a BIG trip where we/I set out to see a lot of places and do a lot of different things. That is what we did this summer! Upstate New York is a wonderful place to explore & adventure! We went to Niagara Falls & rode the new electric Maid of the Mist, we went to the Rochester Museum of Play, I showed the kids Saint Bonaventure University & Syracuse University, and we went hiking @ Letchworth State Park. We went to Alexandria Bay & visited Boldt Castle, we hiked a Fire Tower Challenge in the Adirondacks, we rode a rail bike, went zip lining and a whole bunch of other fun & exciting things! It was tough sometimes finding accommodations for a family of 6 – and we stayed a different place almost every night. People got cranky, and sometimes downright cantankerous, cars needed to be repaired, people laughed, and memories were made. It was a big, messy & ambitious family undertaking – and I can’t wait to do it again!
