Finally, our big adventure has started! We applied for the Lilly Teacher Creativity Fellowship in November, 2012. We waited patiently for notification until February. It was a long wait for today to finally arrive!

Our first official destination is Salem, MA, but we decided to take a side trip to Niagara Falls along the way. We can now check that off the bucket list! The falls are beautiful, but the town itself is the biggest tourist trap ever! Our advice, don't go out of your way to visit.

On the advise of New Yorker, Shannon Pasley, we stopped at Anchor Bar in Buffalo, NY, home of the original Buffalo wing. It was fantastic! Truly, the best wing sauce ever! Check this out for the true story.

We have stopped for the night at Henrietta, NY just in time to see the Hoosiers playing Louisville in the College World Series. What a great way to end the first day of our big haunted adventure!
