Visiting Washington

In October, Joshua and I traveled to Washington State to visit my family.

We finally got to meet little Evan, my nephew and Joshua's cousin, who was born last April. We also we able to visit with my sibling and parents... And my grandmother even made the trip from Western Washington to see us.

It was a wonderful time. I can't wait to go back at Christmas!

Into New York City!

Darren's mom and Harley came up from Georgia to visit in September. We took that opportunity to check out some of the sites of New York City.

First, we rode the ferry to the Statue of Liberty, then on the Battery Park in the ciy. We then proceeded to walk through the financial district at 5pm on a Friday. I was amazed at just how crowded the sidewalks can be!

We stopped at a beautiful, historic church, then walked to Chinatown where we ate at an authentic Chinese restaurant. It was great! After dinner, we took a cab to Ground Zero. That was an emotional stop. We spent a significant amount of time at the memorial wall.

We had parked our car across the water at Liberty State Park in New Jersey. Our water taxi never showed up, so we took a differnt water taxi to another New Jersey location, hopped the light rail, then a bus and finally arrived at our vehicle.

What fun we had! Joshua did great, too! We really enjoyed our brief visit with Mom and Harley. It is fun to see Joshua with his grandparents!
