Sunday's trip to Niagara on the Lake was as lovely as ever. The bridge over had just a short line, we beat the crowds at the Butterfly Conservatory and walked the shops, had lunch and then stopped at both the Floral Clock and the Canadian Falls on the way back.
Except for a slightly glitchy reentry through US Customs*, it was all good.
I never get tired of these:
It was sort of relaxing for Laura to have the day to chatter away in German with her friend Lara, although they asked us first if would bother us, which it did not. Laura has told me that she now thinks only in English and has started to dream in English. She is thoroughly at home here and has even said that our home is and will remain hers. We agree.
In other news, the sectional arrived, but the loveseat is now in limbo and I decided that we need an additional end table to finish furnishing our family room. Yesterday, Jim hung empty photo frames on the walls:
I need to go through our family photos and fill 27 spots. This will involve a fair amount of sorting, scanning and reprinting, but it will complete the room we spend the most time in.
* I think I'm going to write my Senators about a new law allowing an inexpensive passport renewal after major weight loss because they always ask about it and that slows down the line. Our bridges have been horrible this year, every little bit helps.
