New York

I'm so excited. Damon and I have decided that since we never got a true honeymoon, we are going to take a weekend excursion and go to NYC. Neither of us have ever been there and we think we will have a blast seeing the sites. We will fly out on a Friday night and and come back on Sunday afternoon. This way we will not have to take any vacation days at work. We will have a day and a half to see the sites in NYC. We may wait until this summer or early fall and make it a long weekend and take Friday and Monday off work so we have more time to spend there. We have to discuss it more and secure our sitter for the boys. If we can get a sitter for the weekend of March 7-9 we will go then. Otherwise, we will wait until probably September.

I know we want to see the Statue of Liberty, Sears Tower, Central Park, American Museum of Natural History, Madison Square Garden, and Ellis Island. I can't think of them now. Of course, it may be better if we put it off so we have more time to spend being a tourist.

Not only will this be like our honeymoon, but this will also be for our 15th anniversary that is coming up in December. I'll post more once we finalize our plans.

That sounds like a lot of fun. I hope you guys can go soon. Take lots of pictures.

Here's a tip--if you can, try to go on the boat tour of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island that leaves from the New Jersey side. You're going to have to drive around anyway, and the Jersey side is usually less crowded and faster to get through.

Keep us posted on the trip! Sounds like you'll have a lot of fun!
