Because I go to school far from home, it's a special treat if my parents ever visit. This year was the first time my dad was able to make it out to see me. Fortunately I didn't have school on the first day he was here. He mentioned that the pilot had pointed out the misty Niagara Falls below them as he flew into the area. Since it was a beautiful fall day, we decided to go to the Falls as a scenic mini road trip; it was the first time either of us had been there and it was pretty spectacular. There's nothing like father-daughter bonding time!
