NYC, here we go!

Amber here, updating the jealous masses on our fabulous vaca! Monday we used our CityPasses to go the Statue of Liberty (her true name is Liberty Enlightening the World, did you know?) We took the free tour and got a fantastic tour guide. I would strongly suggest taking the tour.

We then went to Ellis Island, M was very interesting in reading ever bit of info they had! The weather was perfect, and the ferry ride out to the islands was gorgeous!

For dinner we decided to go to the South Street Seaport, a good idea, if we weren't tired and I didn't get us lost. We ended up walking to Ground Zero, which was fascinating to see how far they have gotten with rebuilding the site. When we did make it to the Seaport we had a lovely dinner!

Tuesday, we were a little tired. Actually a lot tired! We bought Wednesday matinee tickets to Addams Family, and made our way to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. We were so tired, we only made it through Arms and Armory, Egypt, and Roman Artifacts. We then hailed a cab to FAO Schwartz where M found   a mini UFO he couldn't live without. After a brief stop at Tiffany's, we hailed a second cab to Bella Vita for pizza, again. Guess we give this place 2 thumbs up!!

  1. Looks like you're having tons of fun on a bun! Remind me when you leave again? Do we overlap at all? Hope so!

  2. I leave on Saturday at noon, I think I miss you. :( We will have to plan on fun over the Fourth (I will bring the buns!!).
