"I wish we could put up some of the Christmas spirit in jars and open a jar of it every month." Harlan Miller

Too much, too quickly. Too much to do, too little time; that would be the best way to describe this past week.
Barry, Meghan & kitty cat "Fever" arrived around 10 pm on December 19th. We welcomed them into the house, got bags to their rooms, had a late night snack then played word games until after 1:00 am.
Sunday afternoon, passports in hand, we spent the day at Niagara on the Lake, Ontario, Canada.
We wanted to show Meghan around town and some last minute Christmas shopping.

The damp, cold day was full of surprises. Little did we know the Olympic torch was going to pass through the center of town that day.

After a cold, day enjoying the town Barry treated us to Irish pub fare at the old Angel Inn.
Later in the evening another Olympic torch sighting in Niagara Falls, Canada.

Honestly, after a day out walking around town in the cold I was ready to go home. They wanted to show Meghan around Niagara Falls. She was so excited to ride the SkyWheel. Everyone agreed so I reluctantly put on my wet gloves and damp Beret not anxious to go back out into the cold. It turned out Barry, Kara and Jim do not like to ride on farris wheels so I treated Meghan to a turn on the SkyWheel over looking Niagara Falls. Who knows when we will get the opportunity to do that again.

Here is Meghan just as the ride is about to begin.

My last image from the top of the SkyWheel just as my battery power pack closed for the day.

One final surprise was a fireworks display over Niagara Falls, the perfect way to end the first full day of our Christmas Festivities.
