It really can't be the end of March yet, can it?
What a busy winter I have had with my genealogy and my card making, my work and home --and some wonderful trips thrown in too! I don't know where the time went by to. But the plants in my Minnesota garden are telling me it's SPRING almost!
Hubby and I have been busy with a few trips and the biggest one was flying out to see our newlywed daughter. First stop Pennsylvania to see our wonderful Jen and her husband Russ. What great hosts they were! We saw SO much more than is even shown here.
Heading for NY city with them both to see all the main sights and a A-1 musical (Wicked). We even rode the Metro!
Freedom Tower site. Very sobering and yet hopeful too.
Passing Lady Liberty on the ferry boat. VERY cool to see her and it was something from my bucket list! Yeh! She really is inspiring to see.
On to Ellis Island and the museum. This was also on my list of "someday" things to do that has come true! Growing up on the west coast, I certainly never thought I'd make it waaaaay over here to NYC! I loved the history of it all since I have 4 known sets come through this entryway to America. Hubby has a few also. It must have taken some kind of bravery to overcome their fear and nervousness in coming into a new land.
A little look at Times Square. So pretty! So many light bulbs! LOL
A long carriage ride around Central Park is the ONLY way to go! Loved this. Also ate at Magnolia Bakery and saw Penn Station, Rockefeller Center, Battery Park, Madison Square Garden, Dakota Hotel, Brooklyn Bridge, the Staten Island Ferry, and more!
Some time for fun too. (Its actually a sampler set and not as full sized as it looks) This is in a historic pub in a grist mill in Pennsylvania while we spent the day ancestor hunting for hubby's lines through Lancaster County cemeteries! Isn't it funny how life goes around in a circle? My husband's great great great grandfather left Pennsylvania for the midwest right after the Civil War and almost 150 years later, our daughter is by chance happily living and working there!
Hope all is well with you and more about my garden and crafting coming soon! So exciting!
