I think one of the highlights of my summer was taking a Niagara Falls trip with Daniel! We were lucky to score an overnight stay at an affordable hotel that was within walking distance to major attractions and restaurants!!
We decided to leave on the day I finished my final exam for my summer school course. After checking into our hotel, we headed to East Side Mario's for my celebratory dinner!! :)
We visited the iconic falls afterwards and I gotta give my boyfriend the credit for these night photos. My photos nowhere compares to how good his turned out! We also checked out the casino that night and played their one cent slot machines until we each lost $5! LOL
Since we were both not down to lose more money on games that required pure luck, we went back to our king suite, turned on the jacuzzi, poured some white wine, watched the Family Channel and cuddled until we both dozed off. :)
I was so excited for our adventure the next day! We had a huge breakfast at IHOP, while planning out the activities we wanted to do before heading back to Toronto. We checked out the Skylon Tower first and we both thought it was really weird how much it resembled the CN Tower outside and inside, until we learned that it was actually constructed 10 years earlier!?!
The view of the falls seriously looked so much better up there!
Since it looked like it was about to rain soon, we quickly drove to the Butterfly Conservatory next!
On our drive there, I was so excited to enter the observatory but I actually found myself (just a bit) terrified once I was in the same room with so many butterflies!!! I found more comfort viewing them behind my camera because it distracted me from seeing how many were flying around me.
Daniel would film our Niagara adventures here and there throughout the day. For some reason, the moment he decides to film me was the moment a butterfly landed in my hair!!! I was already (just a bit!!!) terrified of them attacking me... so when one landed on me... OH hell naw!!!!
I literally risked my life for these photos guys! I think I'm more of a daredevil than roof toppers!!!
It started to pour as soon as we left the building, so we didn't get to do all the activities that we had planned to do. It's all good though - that just means we have to plan another trip to come back!! ;)
