We had an early start to our day. My husband and I were up at 5am to get ready to leave by 6:00 am. We had to have our daughter Erika to Niagara University for 9:00am. It’s not that far away but you never know how long you might be held up at the border.
We pulled out of our driveway at 5:59am….pretty accurate.
The highway is pretty quiet this early on a Sunday morning, so after gassing up and a stop at Tim Horton’s for some breaky, it was clear sailing all the way to the border. Of course it was a typical quiet drive since Erika slept all the way there, her usual thing to do in the car and we had to wake her at the border, but lo and behold…….no wait when we got there, we zipped right through.
We arrived at the University by 7:30 am and then had to wait until registration time at 9am.
We watched some of the warm up and then decided to check out the Outlet Mall to see if we could find the warm up pants Erika wanted, which we did manage to find. Once that little task was completed the Mall didn’t really hold any interest for us so we decided to take a tour of the American side of Niagara Falls. I have to say they are a bit more impressive than the Canadian side. I took lots of pictures as I am known to do and once we finished our sight-seeing we headed back to the University to watch the full sided games.
Erika looked pretty good playing with these girls, even though there were only two other girls from her own team there.
After the camp session was over we were given a fairly quick tour of the University and my impression of it is that it is a very pretty and probably very expensive school that seems to pamper their students, which Erika thought sounded great. After the tour we headed for home.
The border crossing was uneventful and didn’t take too long despite the very long line up. Once back in Canada we grabbed some fast food for dinner and arrived home around 7:15pm fed the dogs, and took them out for their walk.
We all managed to get a little sunburned but other than that it was a long but fun day, not at all as boring as I feared it might be.
