Still Vacationing

We are still here in beautiful Rochester, NY. The family reunion on Sunday was a success. We attended church at 9:30 am clad in Kelly green, not because we are Irish, but because my family is color coded and we are decendents of the line that is represented by the color green. The girls wore their German dresses and pigtails, Bradley wore a green polo shirt, and Jason wore his green lederhosen. I really wish I could post some pictures, the hotel still has a screwy Internet connection though. People at church thought we were a little strange, but gave us a warm welcome and nicknamed us a the "green family."

Yesterday we went to Niagara Falls. It was a little stressful keeping track of 6 kids and making sure they didn't take a plunge over the falls. We managed well with the help of my parents, my sister, and my sister-in-law. It was a great Family Home Evening activity.

Now today we are taking a breather and doing some laundry, perhaps a little swimming. I want to go to the cemetery where my ancestors are buried and take some pictures. Laundry and cemeteries - a great morbid combination.

Last night the fire alarm went off in the hotel at 2:30 AM. We had the excitement of getting all the children up for the walk down 4 flights of stairs to stand in the rain and wait for the firemen to tell us it was a false alarm. Rachel slept through the whole ordeal and I'm glad David's computer didn't burn because my all my pictures from the first half of our trip are on there.
