When I was younger I used to dream about living in New York City. I thought for sure I would move there someday and have such a happy life living like some of the celebrities. Well lets just say I am sure thankful that I don't live there, I know that it is perfect for some people but not me! We made the trip out on the 3rd of July and stayed till the 6th. I think those three days would have to have been the most busy days of my entire life. WOW! It was very much the way it looks in the movies, all the lights and big billboards. Thank goodness for the USO which is a Army information center which was located at the Port of Authority. Every morning we would wake up and rush to hop on the bus to get there and fill up on free drinks and snacks for the day. NYC is definitely a fast paced and worldly place to be! We did have some fun though, I felt kinda uncomfortable in certain situations with images and things but I knew that we would eventually get back to our slow yet happy way of life. Britynn ended up getting sick on our last day in NY and thankfully we drove most of that whole day. She and daddy went to the hospital that night and found that she had developed Bronchitis and Croup. The poor girl had been through so much on our trip and went without her beloved nap which was very hard for me to witness, since I am a very scheduled person and like to have a predictable routine.
Here is a picture of the Empire State Building, which is the tallest building in America. Before 9-11 the tallest buildings were the twin towers
Here is one of the two reflection ponds which is in the exact location where the towers once stood.
