You can see Lady Liberty in the background as Miriam and Hannah pose.
Coming up on the city.
I thought this was a cool shot.
Even though we didn't get to actually see the Memorial, just walking around the city and seeing the Statue of Liberty was a dream come true!
Hopefully our kids will appreciate things like this one day. I wish I could say how wonderful my kids were, that they were real troopers. That they knelt beside the Memorial and said a prayer laying a single rose by the fence. Instead it was me repeating to screaming and whining children, "You're killing my dream kids!". And what's so funny (and I don't mean in the Ha! Ha! kind of way, more of a going crazy kind of cackle) is that Theo had his long run of 16 miles that morning, and I did 5 and yet our kids were DYING because they had to walk 2 miles. Not to mention the stops and getting milkshakes from McDonald's, and hitching rides on the double wide stroller. I was literally dragging Emma along, who was being exceptionally difficult. But the real kick in the pants was when we got back to port where our car was, these kids whose legs you would think were falling off, were acting like cowgirls and galloping off the ferry. Theo and I was pulling our hair out to get them to move, making our walk back to the ferry a living nightmare, and now they are flitting around like they were riding on a cloud the whole time we were in the city. *SIGH*
At least this won't be my last trip into the city. Next time we just may have to get a babysitter, I think we may just be expecting too much from them at this age. I really hope they get better when they get older since I love to travel and go site seeing. It just may take some time for that gene to manifest itself in them, at least that's what I'm hoping for.
