Over the weekend Aaron and I, his brother, and our kids all went to visit Gramma, who lives in the Finger Lakes region of NY. The itty-bitty town she lives in is called Montour Falls, and is very close to Watkins Glen (for all of you racing fans). We were blessed with traveling mercies, a very good visit, and boys who entertained themselves for the 4+ hour trip (each way). Aaron having a couple movies on his Blackberry for them to watch definitely helped on the way back. Driving up and back in one day is a lot for any adult, let alone strapped in kids who aren't used to that length of trip.
We even got a break in the rain so we could visit the falls. Of course there are falls ... the town is named "Montour Falls." Harrison's not in any the pics of the falls. He was napping in the van with Uncle Field while the boys and I explored a little bit. And even though I always try to document everyone present for outings with photos, I think it's even more important to let sleeping toddlers sleep! (Cranky toddlers are no fun when stuck in a car seat for hours on end!) So, everyone agreed that a nap was far more important than a photo - though T-Bone (the alligator) did manage to get his photo taken....
Pictures rarely do waterfalls justice, but they were simply magnificent!
