Tourist for the Weekend ::: A Ferry Tale
The day sky was gloomy but we weren't going to let that slow us down! The fam and I took a ferry to see the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. An activity I've done roughly half a dozen times now but I'll do just about anything, many times with these kids. They're pretty great.
There she goes, tall and proud. I remember once I was wandering around Paris and I saw a mini Statue of Liberty and I was very confused. This isn't America! They stole our lady! Little did I know they had it first and actually gifted one to us.
Stole my jacket...
The city always reminds me of legos on a cloudy day. Is this just me?
The dormitory looking buildings where they kept the waiting immigrants.
The official sign-in room.
Steve was able to look up his great grandparents and you can pull up the actual piece of paper they signed, pretty cool.
By the time we left it was a clear day!
Lovin' that city.
They get so embarrassed when I make them take pictures, it's so enjoyable.
Thank you New York!
