I don't have many-- we were having too much fun! But, I did snap a few here and there of our group's weekend.

I don't have any pics of Friday night; we went out for dinner and chatted for hours.

Saturday, a smaller group of us took a trip up to Niagara Falls and went on the Maid of the Mist. Here are a few pics of that:

The Mighty Falls

sparkysable, tesla, and thebighurt await their aquatic chariot...

Up close and personal!

Yeah... we got a little bit wet...

This is the type of boat we went out on:

On Saturday night, we had dinner at my place. I provided the adult Capri Suns!

Lucky2HaveMe made an incredible appetizer called Mexican Caviar:

Lucky also spoiled us with Heath Bar cupcakes and Snickers cupcakes... did I mention that I gained five pounds that weekend?

And, of course, it wouldn't have been the perfect evening without wine... note the label...

They were all good sports and went along with my craft idea. I wanted us to be able to show our faces, so I came up with a way that tesla inspired when she once posted pics of herself. L to R are Hope24, Lucky2HaveMe, me, thebighurt, tesla (in back), and sparkysable:

The wacky version:

That sparkysable is one sassy and fun lady!

Sunday morning was breakfast at a local diner and then some shopping at a well-known store that has a big tourist draw and is an institution in my town.

And that was the WNY g2g. I'm so glad that we did it. It was a total blast.

Well, I think I've done everything right. Any tricks to Photobucket that I'm not aware of? I followed the instructions on the SI FAQ page, but I still can't get the pics to show. Help?

Well... I got that first one to work.

are you using [ img ] --- [ /img ] with the address of your picture between the where the dashes are?

Make sure you're copying image and not copy image address.

ETA: I had it backwards

I have a Mac after using a PC for years, so I'm still adapting.

I is not sure... but I'm opening your pics in a new tab on safari and then copying them and putting them back into this tread... want me to keep going?

Thanks, but that's okay. I was trying to put them all together with my captions. Sheesh. My kids could probably figure this out, and my oldest is nine!

ETA: Maybe this is a Firefox complication. It doesn't always play nice.

The problem may be with how you're putting the brackets before and after your picture address

I was doing img in brackets, then the address, then /img in brackets at the end.

Nope...

[ img ] your pics address [ /img ]

Just make sure to close the space between the brackets.

I'm sorry... you're doing copy image right? Not copy image address.

Thanks, jrc! I'm not sure that Firefox had "copy image," but Safari did. All better! I appreciate the tech help.

No problems! I deleted the ones I put in... so it would just be yours there!

Glad you got it to work...

I really don't care for Firefox... especially with pictures. My students have a choice between Firefox and IE at school... when we do photo projects I always have them use IE because Firefox never works right.

Squee for pics

Teslet is having a hard time falling asleep so he was just looking at the pics with me and he says, "Mom! That's the mask you gave to me." *pause* "Mom! That's you!!!"

I had such a great time!
