My brother and his little family got sealed in the Manhattan temple, and due to great generosity from my parents and sister I was able to go.  So less than 36 hours after I got home from girls camp I was on a plane to NYC.  I traveled with my sister and we just kind of winged it.  Chris couldn't believe that we were only talking about what we might want to do about an hour before we left for the airport!  Whatever, we had a great time.  We got there about noon on Monday and we were pretty proud of ourselves that we made it from the airport, to the bus, to the subway to the Staten Island ferry without getting lost.  We didn't fair so well the rest of the week, but I'm clinging to our first triumph.  I'm not usually very good at remembering to take pictures, but when I take them on my phone they are stored on our home computer as well.  Chris was able to see where I was and what I was doing so I took more pictures than I normally would have.
Lady Liberty and me
I wanted to have a true NY experience and to me that included buying food from a street cart.  Here I'm buying a way over priced shish kabob that wasn't even good.  You like how my purse is a wide open invitation to rob me?
Time Square!

I'm on that billboard!  Can you see me?  That's okay, neither can I;)

Can you see the angel Moroni?  I knew the temple was just on a city block corner, but it was so cool to be walking past all these buildings then look up and there's the temple!
So cool!
Another food cart try.  Jenked again!  Overcharged for a dry soft pretzel.  I blame TV for leading me to believe it should have been great.

Central Park with my seester:)
Porgy and Bess.  Carmen wanted to see a Broadway show.  Our journey to this theater kind of overshadows our previous direction achievements
Dave wasn't even there.  Where's the love man!
Empire State Building.  I'm not really impressed by tall buildings, but this one got me!  It's kind of amazing.

how fun! You should have let us known because we are a relatively quick train ride away. We could have met you for lunch. Next time..there's always next time.
