Family Visit Recap-Part 1

Our family has been visiting with us this week, and we have had the best time!  Nathan's mom and dad are up all the way from Nashville, and we've enjoyed taking them around to see some local sights.  I'll leave this post heavy on the photos and light on the words since we took lots of great shots this week.


Sunday night after the wedding weekend ended, Nathan and I biked down to the nearby outdoor amphitheater where we listened to the RPO Woodwind Quintet--they were great, and it was such a relaxing time.





Monday morning, we made a big breakfast for the family and then headed out to the Erie Canal.  We rode on the Sam Patch boat and got see and hear lots of neat history about the canal.
 It was a beautiful day for a boat ride

We entered a lock, and it was about the coolest thing I've ever seen!
  
The water flowed in slowly, and raised our boat up to meet the other elevated side of the canal

 

Once we reached the proper elevation, the doors of the lock opened and we rode on through!



We've enjoyed entertaining, laughing, catching up, eating and relaxing with our family this week.
