An update for Carrie

Maine has been great so far! We took three days to get here, stopping for the night in Port Huron and in Niagara Falls, which was very cool. We didn't get as far driving the first day because someone (me) left Mike's wallet in Olivet, MI. We didn't realize it until we made a bathroom break an hour and a half down the road. But we tracked it down, which was a miracle because all we knew was that we stopped at a gas station in Olivet. And it was red. But we got it back and really, every trip needs a little drama, so there you go. Anyway, Niagara Falls Ontario is just like Wisconsin Dells in that it is a tourist hot spot, but with Niagara Falls. It was awesome. I guess I didn't expect to be able to see the falls without paying for at least something, but it turns out you don't have to pay anthing to see them. Don't get me wrong, there is PLENTY you can spend your money on, but just looking at the falls isn't one of them. I'll post pictures later.

So then, here we are. We have all of our stuff moved in the house except for the furniture because we are having the floors refinished. We haven't been able to get in for two days now, but tonight is the night we are allowed in with our socks. Hurray! But we have the World's Best Neighbors - EVER who have been feeding us and letting us sleep at their house. And today we are off to see some beaches, since we can't get in the house anyway, and the weather is suppose to be great over the next day or two.

I'm sure I'll have more time to post in the coming weeks. Especially after we get our internet hooked up (tuesday!). Sorry it has taken me so long!!

Hurray, you made it! I was starting to wonder. It's so fun you stopped in PH and at the falls. It's been years since I've been there - 17 to be exact.

When do we get your address?

Thanks for the post and I'm so glad you have such great neighbors. That makes all the difference in the world. How far are you from Oswego???
