A Fun Filled Weekend

It has been a couple of years since Alexa and Moriah have stayed in a hotel. They were very excited when we asked them if they would want to come along for one of Chris' speaking engagements in Rochester New York. We basically got a free vacation out of it and are going to be paid a little on top of that. Thank you Rochester churches for coming together and wanting to hear about social justice!!

First of all, we rented a van for the whole weekend. The kids were psyched about that! Then we stayed in a super nice hotel that had a pool and work out room. We were all psyched about that! Then we got to experience some upstate NY weather. Whew! And we went to this awesome kids museum that we could have spent a whole week at and still not seen everything. My favorite part was the butterfly room. (check out side bar flickr for more photos).
Chris connected with some really great people and we went up to see niagra falls in CANADA!!! Yep, no id for the kids or anything. They made us open the van so they could talk to the girls and ask their names and how they were related to us and they let us go on. So, we all visited another country and saw the falls in one night. Whew!! We ate some awesome Italian food across the border in the US and headed back to the hotel. The whole experience was so crazy but fun. I am so glad we did it. The girls loved having the time with us, staying up late, swimming, eating out, and seeing new things. India had a hard time adjusting to the sleeping in a strange place but by the third night, she was doing great. She even helped Chris get some work done on his laptop.
We are so blessed to have a family that travels well!!
On another funny note, we stayed just minutes away from an old boyfriend of mine that I met my senior year in high school. He was the one who told me about Eastern College, which is why I went there and if I hadn't of gone there, I wouldn't have met Chris. So, it was the second time for me being in Rochester, but this time was much more memorable:)

Glad you had fun! (India's hat looks gigantic in that falls pic!)

This brings back alot of memories when Dad and I took Stephen to the Falls. I am glad that we were there in the summer! Time does fly. It doesn't seem like it was all that long ago. I'm so glad you and Chris are cherishing every moment. Love, Mom
