New York

For my mom's 60th birthday, my sister and I wanted to take her somewhere she would never go herself. The location of choice was New York City! We had a blast. While there, we saw two Broadway shows, Mary Poppins, which was spectacular, and Mama Mia!, cannot go wrong with that one! If I lived close to NY and had money I think I would go see a show every weekend. There is truly something magical about a Broadway production.

We took a ferry boat out by Ellis Island to see the Statute of Liberty. Took a lot of pictures, just too bad it was an overcast day!
This is a picture of us in Central Park.

This is a memorial at a little church that was right next to Ground Zero. There were memorials for the fire fighters, memorials for the loved ones lost, flags with the name of all the victims, signs sent by children that were hung up in the church soon after the attack and are still hanging up. Very, very emotional. A must see if you are in New York.

John Lennon Imagine memorial in Central Park. Could not get the song out of my head!

Not a place I would ever want to live, but truly a fun place to visit! And a long weekend is plenty of time! Just take your walking shoes and money to spend!
Happy Belated Birthday Mom! I know it will be one none of us will forget!
