Back to Vacation!

As I posted these next photos, I thought, I wish I was more like my friend, Renee. For those of you who don't know her, she has the best blog on the web--strictly my very opinionated opinion. But I do know what I'm talking about. Just click on her link to the right and see for yourself--that is if you have about three weeks to spend reading. She even has had her blog bound into a lovely hard-back book--you can read about that process there, too.

Anyway, Renee has the presence of mind to carry her camera, in its full upright position, with her finger on the trigger, at all times. I don't think she's missed a worthy shot--she's probably even taken many unworthy shots, too--since she started this blogging stuff. Good grief, she even has taken a picture of cauliflower soup. Don't laugh. It inspired me to cook the stuff, and I hate to cook. You probably thought I was going to say that I hate cauliflower. I do doubt that I would have been inspired if I actually hated cauliflower.

I should get to the point. We made a quick stop in New York City so that Brooke could see American Girl Place. This was kind of a big deal. I mean there really is no way make a quick stop in New York City to see anything. Have you ever driven in New York City??? I should really be commended for my willingness to drive in such insanity just so a ten-year-old could see a doll get its hair done--not to mention the $59 it cost me to park for two hours. I am, after all, a grandmother who should know better. My only real regret--here it comes--is that we don't have any great photos to show for this adventure. Two came out totally blurry because the camera was on the wrong setting, and the rest are below. Please tell me that this writing has more than made up for the lack of wonderful pictures.

Yes, I know this is the back of the statue.

Before the real fun began!

The visit is just one big blur now!
