For the first time ever in my 15 years as a wife and mother, I am going on a solo getaway! Well, not quite solo as Miriam will be joining me for company, but the rest of the family is staying home with Dad for three whole days and nights.
Miriam and I are flying out tomorrow night after church on the all-nighter to Buffalo, NY, where we will be arriving Thursday morning. We will have the entire day to explore Niagara Falls. This is the last week that the "Maid of the Mist" boat tours are offered before they close for winter. Temperatures are forecast to be in the high 60s, which is great for this time of year.
We will then be spending the night at a hotel within walking distance from the falls. Friday morning, we will sleep in, and leisurely make our way out farther East in NY state where we will be attending a Ladies Conference at another church. Since we have all Friday to get there, I am thinking about either taking a scenic route along Lake Ontario, or going a little out of our way and stopping at Letchworth State Park, the "Grand Canyon of the East."
The conference runs from Friday evening to Saturday afternoon. Our flight home again leaves Saturday evening, and we'll get home shortly before midnight.
Can you imagine how excited we both are?!? Miriam has not stopped counting down the days since she found out about the trip a couple of weeks ago.
If you think of it, please pray for safe travels for us, as well as my husband who will be playing my part at home while we are gone. I'm not sure he knows what he is in for... muahahaha!
