niagara falls

last sunday we embarked on a very spontaneous trip to toronto, canada. 
sometimes when you get in the mood to go somewhere and see something new, you just have to give into it. so we packed up most of our things, since traveling with a toddler requires lots of things, and off we went on a 6.5 hour road trip north. 

on our way we stopped in erie, pa where it was unseasonably warm and sunny, to let logan run for a while and then again once we go to niagara falls. he did pretty great in the car and enjoyed playing with his lego duplos, showing off his mad puzzle skills and watching a little horton hears a who. 

at niagara falls we ate at the worst, most overpriced romano's macaroni grill where my 9 mushroom ravioli ($23) had the most disgustingly sweet marsala sauce i've ever tasted. our waiter kept hovering and almost ripped our plates away from us before we were even close to being done. overall, not a good experience! 

once we got to toronto and checked into the hotel (we stayed at the westin harbour castle) we were all pretty tired but decided to go back out to explore the city a little bit. we ended up just grabbing street meat for dinner since we had (that gross) lunch kind of late. 

and because there are way too many pictures for one post i'll be posting more throughout the week. yup, because isn't that what a blog is for? 

have you ever been to niagara falls or toronto? 


  1. I've never been there, but have always longed to go! What do you recommend -- how many days, where to stay, what to see? I'd love to hear (or see) what you have to say about it!

  2. I live just an hour and a half away from the Falls, in upstate NY, so I've been there a few times. Isn't it so pretty? Glad you had a good time!

  3. When you're in Toronto, see if you can find Future's Bakery on Bloor Street. They have good hearty breakfasts and fantastic sweets :) and it's a very funky spot. Also Kensington Market and Chinatown are worth checking out for sure - my fave vintage shop Courage my Love is in Kensington :) have fun!!!

  4. WOW! I have never been, it looks amazing! Your little family is so cute! Beautiful photos!

  5. too bad about the bad ravioli....but great photos! we might go there in the next couple of weeks!
