Spring Break in the City

We spent our Spring Break this year in New York. We visited and stayed with our wonderful friends the Peos. We had such a great time seeing them. The week started out with a fun Easter egg hunt on Easter morning. The Peos have an amazing, huge yard so it was the perfect place for a egg hunt. Thanks to the Peos for a fun week.
While in NYC we planned a trip to Philly. We took the train there for 2 days. We were lucky to have such amazing weather. We loved this city. We saw Betsy Ross' house, the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, the Mint in Philadelphia and we went to an amazing Children Museum. The city is beautiful, clean and full of history. This is a picture of Haylie and Cade waiting to board the train.
The beautiful and historic Independence Hall.
The famous Liberty Bell. We checked out a few books from the library before our trip to Philly. It is amazing to learn the history of this famous bell. It is beautiful.
We ran into a few famous people in NY. Look closely and you will see Steve Carrell stepping out of his limo and onto the red carpet for his premier of "Date Night."

Haylie and Cade on the set of Regis and Kelly. I think they had a lot of fun seeing how a TV show is taped.
We walked across the Brooklyn Bridge one day. It was a hot, beautiful New York day. The bridge had amazing views of the city and really great pizza on the other side.
