surprise birthday getaway

This past weekend, Ryan took me on a little surprise trip for my birthday! We left Brynlee with my parents, and it was the first time we had been away from her overnight. It was so hard for me! I won't deny that I cried a bit Saturday night... but afterward I was fine and was able to have fun.

Ryan ended up taking me to Canada and we stayed overlooking Niagara Falls. It's funny because I couldn't tell you how many times I've been to the falls (too many to remember) but each time it is no less breathtaking. Don't miss the rainbow!

Our view and suite was amazing! You can see both of the falls here...

We had a wonderful dinner and went to a magic show... the kind of magic show where the assistants would turn into tigers and stuff like that. It was AWESOME. Ryan and I kept looking at each other and saying "Whaaaat??!" after every trick. Sunday, we went to Niagara on the Lake and walked around and checked out the cute little shops. It was such a nice little getaway. Love my sweet hubby!
