We are US Citizens, will we be able to drive to Ontario and back to the US without a passport? We plan to take a birth certificate and drivers license, is that sufficient to drive to Ontario and back to Buffalo?

Here's what it says on the U.S. State Department website regarding entry/exit requirements into Canada: "Entry into Canada is solely determined by Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) officials in accordance with Canadian law, see http://www.cbsa.gc.ca for details. Canadian law requires that all persons entering Canada must carry both proof of citizenship and identity. A valid U.S. passport or NEXUS card satisfies these requirements for U.S. citizens. If U.S. citizen travelers to Canada do not have a passport or approved alternate document such as a NEXUS card, they must show a government-issued photo ID (e.g. Driver's License) and proof of U.S. citizenship such as a U.S. birth certificate, naturalization certificate, or expired U.S. passport. Children under sixteen need only present proof of U.S. citizenship." Same documents apply when for U.S. citizens returning to the U.S. So, yes, you should be fine with just a birth certificate and driver's license. If you do have a passport, however, I'd just take that to be on the safe side -- there's no arguing with a valid passport.
