NYC, day 1

I went with the band to NYC in March. It was a long bus ride, but it was fun. We arrived NYC at noon after a day and a half (with an overnight) on the bus. While on the bus, we watched "Night at the Museum", and guess what? Our first stop was the American Museum of Natural History! So of course, we had to go in search of all the "fun" things we saw in the movie!

Of course it wasn't exactly the same...and there were tons of people!

The architecture was so impressive.

There was so much to see and we only had about 2 1/2 where near the time needed to explore. But we did get a taste.

This was blocked off for some type of seminar, so this was as far as we were able to go...impressive.

It's so hard to photograph size and dimension sometimes, but this gives a good perspective.

And lastly, we definitely couldn't forget Roosevelt! Day 2 was even busier!

Christmas travel

I really dislike traveling for the holidays. I know it's "necessary", but an hour into our trip, we had car trouble and sat on the side of the road for 4 hours. It worked out in the end, but I was grateful that my kids were not with us and I did not have to worry about the dangers we were sitting in. Funny how it doesn't seem "as dangerous" when it's just me vs when you throw kids into the mix! It all worked out, but the rest of the trip I worried about it happening again...which I why I hate traveling in the winter.

We went to visit an air museum and the kids were in 7th heaven. Me, not so much. But I tagged along anyway and got some cute shots of them.

I couldn't tell you a thing about this plane that they are restoring, other than it's got a picture that's a cross between Popeye and Olive Oyl! Go figure! All in all, I'm always glad to spend family time together, even if it's not my thing. If you don't show interest in what your kids are in to, you will regret it when they are gone!
