East Coast - July 11th & 12th

Wednesday, July 11th:
On the 11th we flew into the Newark Airport, picked up our rental car, and drove to Syracuse, NY. When we landed in Newark, it had started to sprinkle rain, but within a few short minutes, we were in a monsoon-like storm. Check out the pictures:

Picking up our rental car - Notice all the rain.

I know this looks like a river, but it's the road!!

Thursday, July 12th:
On the 12th we drove to Niagara Falls. I had been to Niagara Falls before, but my parents never had. Although I drove to see the Falls in 2004 with some friends, we didn't do much but few the Falls. This time, my parents and I did loads of fun stuff while we were there. Here's a few pictures:

I love the pictures. The ones with your parents are the best. I am not sure if you knew that I lived out there as a nanny and then served part of my mission there?! I used to track in the monsoons. It was a great time. I am not sure if driving or walking through them is better! Glad you are all having a good time. When do you get back?
