Marine Land ~ Wordless Wednesday with Linky

September 6th and 7th we went to Niagara Falls, Ontario to go to Marine Land.  We left early Friday morning, spent the morning and part of the afternoon at the theme park, checked into our hotel and toured downtown Niagara Falls.  Sloan enjoyed the birds more than the Falls and seemed to notice the bugs on the aquariums rather than what was in them.  Overall, we had a great time.  It was everyone's first time at Marine Land.  My husband and I didn't go to places like that as kids.  In fact, our fourth (dating) anniversary - which was 7 years ago now - we went to Niagara Falls for the first time together. 

I think she will enjoy a trip to Niagara Falls more when she is older, but we still had a great time!






Watching the dolphin show.



Dolphins under water.

Killer Whale facts.






Beluga Whales



This Beluga loved us! 




This bear waved to get food. 


More food?

Half red, half orange ladybug.  Strange!

Seals in their indoor aquarium.

Sloan on her first ride!  Mini Ferris wheel.

She wasn't allowed to sit on my lap for the ride.


Going on a boat ride with Daddy.


Saying bye to the dolphins.



After Marine Land - a tour of Niagara Falls.






After looking at the Falls we toured downtown, stopped for dinner and found an old fortune teller.  Daddy wanted some beer so we stopped at the liquor store .  Sloan and I had a photo shoot while we waited outside.  Then Dave carefully strapped his baby into the stroller.


Zoltar!

Strike a pose.....







Precious cargo, coming through!

Big walker.

Enjoying the fireworks at the Falls.


Sloan slept through it.  She slept well after a long day!

Sloan got me up early enough to watch the sun rise over the Falls.

I still love you even though you have me up before the sun.


Being right beside Niagara Falls is powerful.

Thankful for people with foresight!




I love the fence along the Falls.

  10. Very fun! You got great photos. I love how kids pay attention to all the "uninteresting" stuff. My kids will ooh and aah over a squirrel or pigeon at the zoo.
