Today we took the kids in to see the Statue of Liberty. It was on our must see list and we were only about 2 hours away. She is awesome! Cost a mint and security is about stupid to have to go through. Wish I could just say, “hey American citizen here, just want to show my kids what was great about this country.” Had to empty pockets and go through metal detectors twice. Sheesh. Anyhow, we only climbed to the pedastal. All 156 steps. To the top was supposedly 315 although that doesn’t seem like that many, but we couldn’t do it with Tristian. Maybe when she is older. Still we had a good time.
Kathy, if you are reading this… You have to go to Ellis Island. With all the genealogy stuff you are doing, you would love it. It’s amazing. Wish we could have stuck around and read some more. Kids don’t like to read all the little plaques and stuff.
Enough blather and on with the pix!
