C & O Canal

Last week I took the boys to Great Falls with hopes of riding the boat on the canal. I'd never done it, and thought the boys might like it. After doing it I can confidently say that I enjoyed it more than they did, but also that they liked it. Going through a lock was super cool. We lucked out with the best seats on the boat and with good weather. Even the mules cooperated! We finished the morning with a walk to the Great Falls overlook. Good times.

P.S. Know what else was awesome about this trip? The booth was closed so we got in free, saving me five dollars. When we were done, we walked by a place to get some ice cream and since it was warm and since I had the cash and since I'm such a super-awesome-fun mom, I bought three ice cream bars. And they were not four dollars each, thankyouverymuch.
