First, we crossed the border back into the USA, right next to the majestic Niagara Falls. (We spent the day before visiting the Falls from the Canadian side.)

They also had a blast goofing off in the woods, exploring, taking photos, and making silly videos.

For the grande finale, on the last night of our trip we released a flying lantern into the sky (like Rapunzel!!!)

We had such an amazing trip! I was really nervous beforehand that it would be too long, too hard, or just too stressful to camp that long with all those kids in one tent. But it turned out really well, and I’m already planning more adventures for next summer!
