Getting Ready

We all went out on the boat again, but this time Andy water skied while Anne was with us.  She did NOT like it.  She is afraid of loud noises, so I thought covering her ears would calm her down but it didn't. Poor Anne.  She later said she was upset because "Daddy fell".  Regardless, we made sure to go out and pick up some serious earmuffs for her.  She uses ear muffs at home when I vacuum, and they are quite the confidence booster.

We all got Andy's Dad a 12 car lap experience at New Hampshire Speedway for Christmas. His scheduled times have all been cancelled due to rain, we are hoping the third time is a charm so we can see him. There is a hurricane forecasted to come through, so we think it will probably get cancelled.  After his Tom Petty Driving Experience we plan on going to Montreal, Canada.   This will hopefully break up the drive to Niagara Falls. Originally we were going to go the day after the race cars, but we are ready to start!

I scoped out places to visit based on Disney's Go Families ( and the book 1,000 Places to see Before You Die by Patricia Schultz.
