Busy Life

I apologize to those who have been checking this blog and found nothing new posted in a long, long time. I've been so busy with school and work! This was my first summer class ever and I had no idea how fast they move! But the class was great and I loved it. It was a class on group dynamics and we did a lot of work in groups to experience dynamics in groups. Anyways - between reading 30-40 pages every day, writing several papers and assignments and keeping up with my work for my jobs, I did not get time to update this site.

Here is what has been going on:

I turned 23 on June 4th! My parents and brother came up to visit and celebrate with me, which was way fun. Over the course of the weekend and the week I got 4 cakes! Sunday night Josh and my friends surprised me with a birthday celebration at Cheddars. So fun!
(I don't have any pics yet from that weekend because my mom took all the pics. I'll post them when I get them.)

For my birthday present my parents took us to Niagara Falls! My aunt and grandmother came too. We went to Toronto first and got to see the city from the CN Tower, which is so way cool!

This is the view from the CN Tower. We got to each lunch up there. The restaurant slowly revolves so you get to see the whole city and Lake Ontario.








Then we drove to Niagara Falls and got to stay in a hotel that overlooked the Canadian Horseshoe falls. The waterfalls are so incredible!
This was the view from our hotel room!
We had so much fun! We took a boat ride right up to the falls. It's amazing how much water is flowing so fast!


These are the American Falls-->






What an incredible trip! If you have not been, totally go to Niagara! And make sure you see it from the Canadian side!

More to come later!
