Since it has been quite a long time since we have been active, we are going to be Under Construction for a while - trying new fonts, designs, and updating our sidebar stuff. Hopefully we will get it how we like it soon so it won't change too much!

Also - Can someone tell me how to get rid of the giant gap below this notice - I cannot figure out how to do it - thanks!!

Valentines Day! Part 1

Hi Everyone! This is Barney and I wanted to tell you about the awesome Valentine's Day trip I am taking with ♥Gracie♥ and her friends Karl, Ruis, Opus, Olive, Momo, Socks, Asta, Stanley!

Gracie thought it would be very romantic for us all to go to Niagra Falls! I hadn't heard of it before so I thought it would be very fun!

The first place we stopped was this cool flea market which had lots of barrels. We picked some up though at the time I wasn't sure why.

The first thing we did when we got there was to look at the falls - we were at the bottom at the time. They looked huge and awesome!

Next we checked into the hotel - it was very fancy! We had an amazing view too! And before you worry, the boys stayed in one room and the girls in the other!

The boys went up to our room - there were a lot more boys then girls!

You can see that Gracie even put a picture of me next to her bed!

After checking it we all decided it would be fun to ride on one of the boats! It was so neat because it takes you right up to the falls! It does get you wet but it was fun to be with everyone, so I didn't mind too much!

After the boat ride, we decided to check the falls out from above! Luckily MoMo brought along a magic carpet, just in case we needed it!

After all the excitement that day, there was a beautiful fireworks display! While everyone else went outside to watch, ♥Gracie♥ and I decided to stay back and spend a romantic evening together! I was sure to be prepared and got her balloons, candy and flowers - I know that girls love that stuff for Valentine's Day!

The next day, there was a lot of action at the falls. Olive was in the girls room looking out the window when she saw something floating in the water! Since both rooms are so high up she couldn't tell what it was at first.

Luckily there was a telescope in the girls room, so she was able to get a close look. Here is what she saw!

It was one of the barrels we got from the flea market - and someone was in it!!

Olive yelled for everyone to head down there - but they had no idea who was in the barrel!

Well, it was ♥Gracie♥ and me! We thought it would be fun to float in one, but we just got to darn close to the edge! We held on as tight as we could - but at least I was with ♥Gracie♥. I tried my best to keep us both safe!

Soon after we were followed by ♥Gracies♥ MiniMe! She had stowed away in Gracies luggage, and didn't want to be left behind!

Well, as soon as everyone else saw us going over the falls, they must have thought it looked like fun, because they decided to join us - but I think some of them weren't sure it was such a good idea!

So what happened next? Well you will have to check back tomorrow to find out!

Mom also wanted me to tell you that later today Virgil will be posting about his date with Danielle for Valentine's day - she just hasn't got the pictures ready yet - whatever that means! And Danielle, is you read this she will be sending the pictures to you later today - she is so behind!!


Hi Everyone - mom here! I wanted to amend Barney's post - it is true I am behind!
