Vacation Recovery

I am recovering from our trip. My washer is glad to see me again, I can tell, and the cat missed John desperately. She won't leave him alone. The kids are back in full swing, but my wagon is draggin'.

Here are a few photos from the first part of our trip. We couldn't get the digital camera to download onto John's computer, among other things, so I had to use our other camera and now I have film to develop. I have become so used to the instant gratification from my digital camera that I can't believe I waited as long as I did to get one! John got it for my birthday last year and I love it.

The Arcade in Cleveland- Double Punch Day! See the lion heads that surround the edge of the ceiling, just below the glass? They used to blow streams of fire out their mouths when Rockefeller built this place- can you imagine that? Apparently, they caught a flag on fire about 30 years ago, so Fire Blowing was banned by the Fire Marshall. Too bad.

Clifton Hill (the main tourist drag) in Niagara Falls, Ontario

Getting ready to board the Maid of the Mist. The American Falls are behind us.

A family photo before Uncle David's wedding. Philip and Ben were "ringbearers" and John was a groomsman.

Nathanael and his cousin Hannah. They are just a few months apart in age. See the big bonk on Nathanael's head that he got just in time for wedding photos?

John, with his dad, brothers and sons. Isn't that a great photo?
