The Big Apple

We did it all, folks! We arrived on Thursday and didn't stop until we got back on the plane on Sunday afternoon. Mom, Blaire and I had a great time in New York City. Mom really enjoyed seeing all the sights for the first time. We were also able to visit the Statue of Liberty since she just reopened last year. A run-down of the trip: Tiffany's, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Grand Central Station, Times Square (about five times, day and night), Radio City Music Hall tour, FAO Schwartz, Central Park, Tavern on the Green, a rickshaw, Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, South Pacific on Broadway, yummy food every meal, a two hour walk from our hotel down to Battery Park passing through China Town, Little Italy and Greenwich Village. Needless to say our "dogs" were barking every evening but it was such a fun trip and one I will always remember. "It's who you're with, not where you are"! Enjoy the pictures!

I just liked this place, it makes me think of what it looked like a long time ago.

This is the original torch, restored.

A replica of her foot. Blaire thought she needed a pedi!
