Spring Break in New York City

We spent Spring Break visiting our wonderful friends the Peo's in New York. They moved there last summer and we were excited to explore the city with them. They were wonderful hosts who knew all of the secrets to this great city. Our first day we set out to see the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island and Ground Zero. It was so cold that day. We were definitely the wimpy tourist from sunny Southern California.

We were in heaven in M&M world. The Call's love chocolate!
Haylie and Cade in Times Square.
This picture was taken from the "Top of the Rock" or the Rockefeller building. It had amazing views of the entire city including the Empire State Building.
Tanner was instantly interested in the poster of pictures of the fallen firefighters at Ground Zero. He knelt down next to it and studied it for a few minutes. This was a touching scene for our busy Tanner.
One of the monuments on the wall to those who died on September 11th.
Ice skating in Rockefeller Center. This was one of the kids favorite things that we did.
We found a beautiful yellow tree on our day in Central Park.
We ate hot dogs in Central Park. We had beautiful weather that day and the kids had a great time climbing all of the huge rocks.At the Museum of Natural History Weston kept telling us that he wanted to see "Dumb Dumb give me Gum Gum" The museum workers knew just what we were talking about. This was the museum were Night at the Museum was filmed. The kids were excited when they finally found "Dumb Dumb."
