Happy Anniversary

November 20, 2011

Even though our anniversary is not actually until tomorrow, Jeff and I celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary last night. Erin has a hockey game in the middle of the afternoon today and tomorrow is nutty as most Mondays are, so the kids suggested Jeff and I should go out on a “date” last night. After looking around a bit on the Internet, I determined that I’d rather go to Niagara Falls and check out the Festival of Lights. So we all hopped in the Jeep and headed out around 7 pm. Our favorite steak house, Montana’s, closed in the US, has a location in Niagra Falls, so we headed there first. After a yummy dinner, we decided to take a ride on the 175 feet tall Sky Wheel. It is a ferris wheel with enclosed “gondolas” that give one a fantastic view of the falls!  We never did make it to see the lights, but we got a glimpse of them from the sky wheel.

Unfortunately, the pictures I took from atop this wheel did not turn out but I thought these two pictures of the wheel itself were pretty cool!

Both of us had a wonderful time and the girls made it even more enjoyable.  We didn’t get home until nearly 1 am, but it was a great night!
