We went to Niagara Falls on Sunday and came home again on Tuesday. In between those two times, we kept busy and had a wonderful time. Here are a few pictures of some of the places we went to, and one picture of the chapel where we got married last year (but this time the picture was taken at night).

We had to get a dog minder for him for a few days. I really missed him a lot. We had a wonderful time though. It was very busy, but we did all sorts of tourist things. We did all the things this time that we didn't have the time to do last year.

Oh, Christine it looks like you two had a wonderful time! I just love Niagara Falls, I went there for my birthday actually.
The chapel is so pretty, especially at night. And I bet you had fun with that heart shaped tub *wink wink*

No comment on the tub. Note the red rose? That's what the minister that married us sent for our anniversary! I think that was really nice of her. It was our only gift so it was twice as special to us. And yes, we had a wonderful time!

Isn't it a wonderful camera? These pictures look like post cards to me. I am so pleased with it. It's what DH got me for my birthday but he is letting me use it so I don't miss a single picture anywhere. It's a Nikon and we got such a deal on it. It even came with a one hour lesson on how to use it. Life is great!

From the looks on your faces it appears that honeymoon is not over. Congratulations on a wonderful year and many more that are even happier.

Great pictures with the new camera Christine. You had fantastic weather and the falls look beautiful in the sunshine. So they really do have heart shaped tubs in the rooms. I won't make any comment. Glad you had such a wonderful time.

OK so I just have to post a wedding picture then, because I looked a LOT younger in those pictures than I do now. It's been a rough winter for me! My DH is often asked if the woman in the picture is his daughter, which kind of makes me feel good but also feeling badly for him!

Happy Anniversary to you both!! I'm glad you guys had a great time! I love the pics...they do look like postcards. It looks like the weather was great too. Aren't those heart shaped tubs great! :eyebrow: I like when you put bubble bath in them and the bubbles get out of control and explode all over the place! Your wedding pics are beautiful. It's nice to now put a face with a friend I've met on here. I bet Boots was glad to have you back home. Here's to many more anniversaries !!:clink:

The wedding pictures are beautiful Christine. Love your dress and the red flowers look stunning with it. Is it one of those photos that you recently had made in the extra large size?

No, that was the picture of us having our "dance". I put the quote marks there because all that happened through the dance was people saying "turn here, move there, lift your head, lower your head, etc." All DH wanted was one dance with me so we had our dance and a bit of it was truly enjoyed. The picture that was taken while we were dancing is now the poster hanging on our livingroom wall. We had our reception in the hotel restaurant so there was no place to dance there. The hotel manager allowed us to dance in the lobby, but just for one dance and only DH and I, not the whole crowd.

It sounds not very nice, but let me tell you it was very romantic, elegant, classy and VERY fancy.

I loved the red flowers with the silver satin. Anyone that knows me knows that I just HAVE to have red somewhere. I thought it looked really nice!

My DH is often asked if the woman in the picture is his daughter, which kind of makes me feel good but also feeling badly for him!

Don't feel sorry for him, each time he hears it he probably thinks no not my daughter, she's my wife. How lucky I am to have such a beautiful women to love me and want to spend the rest of her life with me.

Awwww Chris, my head won't fit in my hat anymore! What a fantastic compliment. Thanks so very much. DH says that all the time to me, but I thought it was just him wanting more "honeymoon type ummmm treats" LOL!

Thankyou ALL for your compliments. Don't stop now haha! Actually I am sitting here blushing like crazy. I can't believe you all think these things. My mother always taught me that less is more, and so the dress was simple and elegant. The shoes, on the other hand, were pure feminine frippery, for which I paid dearly because I had blisters for days afterwards. They hurt, but they were worth it!

Probably the same as this one! It was fun, but we did not do the half of what we could have done because time was short.

As DH calls out from the tub, Christine yells back... "I'll be right there...I just need to finish this row" :roflhard: :roflhard:

Has he introduced you as his trophy bride, young, beautiful and in love with me? I use trophy bride in only the best of terms as a prize that he wants to show off every time he can. Yes he deserves "honeymoon type treats" :muah: :heart:

No he has never done that. However, the other day we dropped in to his workplace and he introduced me to a man that he used to talk to when he was talking to me on the cell phone. The man had seen our wedding pictures and he said to me "I told him last year that I would be more than happy to have stood in for him during the honeymoon, but he would not agree to it, the greedy man". I laughed and blushed and it felt really good!
