a spencer dakin experience

ok, because i'm the biggest nerd in the entire world, i planned a war of 1812 excursion for my family! yup. i think history is fun. i can admit that. my step sister had learned all about laura secord this year in school and was so excited to see where she lived and where she travelled that i had to plan an outing for all of us! and it was such a blast! everyone had such a great time and some of our legs hurt a lot the next day...!


picnic lunch at queenston heights
sammies and cukes and goldfish and club soda...
yum!!


addy and my dad at the top of brock monument
237 stairs and 2 panic attacks later...
and then down...


yup, we climbed that...


my boys!
handsome men...


secord house...
learning and junk...


hey...



i can guarantee what they're listening to wasn't that enthralling...


we all wore matching t-shirts!
we are that awesome!


in front of the secord house with our mediocre tour guide...


lainie and the big guns...


are you kidding me with this family...
how can you not love em!!??


at fort george


<3


<3


this is how everyone stood naturally while in bricks bastion
i couldn't have planned this...


we're cute like this...


addy is the best because she's always ready for a photo...
she's my #1 ham!


lainie is this best because it was so hard to 
take her picture!
she was so engulfed in doing stuff!!

i had such an amazing time making the t-shirts and researching (and making a fife and drum playlist...)! however, i realized i have to keep my camera on me more often (or learn to whip out that phone!!) because i'm missing some cool stuff we did after fort george like getting ice cream from cows and looking at the shops in niagara on the lake and our amazing dinner at the irish harp and the car ride home...!!!
