The Falls

Day two of our Valentine's trip to Niagara Falls with the gang, Karl, Ruis, Opus, Olive, Momo, Socks, Asta, Stanley, Barney, and I started out with some action happening on the falls.

Olive was viewing the falls from her room when she noticed something was in the water. She couldn't see too good because the object in the water was so small but she took a a look through a telescope that was in our room only to see . . .

. . .  a barrel going over the falls. She screamed for all us to get down to the falls asap to see what was going on . . .

It didn't take too long to figure out who was in the barrel as Barney and I were not by them on the land checking things out. We didn't want to go over the falls but I guess we just got a little to close or something. Before we went over the falls I thought of a saying that I hear my mom say sometimes times it goes like this, "Some decisions are made for you."

Barney and I hung on as tight as we could, I must say that our short lived lives flashed quickly before us, and only hoped for the best when we reached the bottom of the falls . . .

My MiniME, who must have slipped herself inside my luggage making her a stowaway, was soon in the water with her own barrel and just about to head over the falls when I heard her scream, "Wait for me!"

Our gang has this favorite saying that they like to say. It goes like this: All for one and one for all! I am guessing that they just couldn't resist the trip down the falls after they saw Barney and I heading over it so they all headed into the water with barrels in tow. I think before Barney and I got to the bottom of things I heard yelling from Olive and Momo but not sure because the roar of the water was so loud. Maybe my ears were playing tricks on me.

Y'all best stick with the tour guide...much safer that way!

Alasandra said...

I really has to learn to start saying NO to MoMo. Barrel Rides down Niagra Falls are NOT a good idea. I wonder if we will all make it safely to the bottom? ~Socks

Oh how scary!!!

Cat Naps in Italy said...

Hehehehehehe! Whooooo hoooooooo! The trip down is great, it is just that stop at the bottom that might hurt!

I guess the readers will have to wait to see if we make it and if we do, how many of our nine lives we used up doing so!

Love,
Opus and Ollie
