We celebrated her birthday on Friday night at her favorite Ramen restaurant and then woke up at the crack of dawn to take the train upstate, all the way to the border, to Niagara Falls.
The train ride itself was absolutely gorgeous with the fall leaves in full autumn colors. We spent hours reading, napping, watching the scenery, playing cards.
Once we got to the train station on the U.S. side of Niagara Falls, we hopped in a taxi to the border and walked across the Rainbow Bridge that connects the two countries.
We spent all day Sunday enjoying the falls from just about every angle. We took a boat underneath the falls, hiked in the park above the falls, climbed some rickety stairs along the side of the falls and ended with a delicious dinner in a restaurant that overlooked the falls. And lucky for us, it was Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend so we'll be able to enjoy two turkey dinners with all the fixings this year.
