New Hampshire Adventure//Part One [traveling]

This week I am on my first trip to the East Coast, tagging along with Morgan, Caleb, and Hallie as they journeyed to New Hampshire for Caleb's younger brother's wedding.

Along the way, we had some spare time to detour for a visit to Niagara Falls, which is when we kinda went to Canda, without passports. It all started with Caleb taking a short detour so we could experience Niagara Falls. We began up a bridge that pointed to Canda, because none of us had passports, we didn't fully anticipated being able to get into Canada. Though we thought we could get to Niagara Falls from that point. After getting up to Canadian customs we decided to just turn around before going through, so with a trailer and SUV we turned around in busy traffic, and headed back over the bridge. Of course traffic was insane and it took us an hour to get back over the bridge, which we had then realized that we had to go through US customs, even though we hadn't actually gone to Canada. We're two cars back from customs as Hallie has a diaper blow out getting on her clothing and car seat. Morgan plucks her out, changes her , and puts her back in her car seat in just a diaper as we pull up to the window. Caleb explains that we didn't really go through to Canada, we have no passports, we have no ID for Hallie, and our trailer is empty. Thankfully, the customs officer was so gracious and let us through. Then, flustered, and ready to just leave, Cal forgot the fenders on the trailer were a little wider than the vehicle. We hit a pole as he was turning the corner, and knocked off one fender before the officer opened the gate so we could just pull straight through. 

Best adventure of not going to Canada I've ever had. ;) A little while later, we did make it to the US side of the falls before finishing our drive. 

Lunch in Vermont where the pancakes are 14 inches each!
