Hello Everyone,

Yesterday, we spent the day with our daughter in NYC.  The day started off kind of foggy and we began our journey in Battery Park.

This was our view of Lady Liberty.  

Dad and daughter in great spirits.

I am trying to smooch with the hubs.

I really couldn't believe my eyes that the flowers were in bloom already and the leaves were budding out.

We walked quite a way and landed in Eataly!  A great Italian marketplace of sorts.  Being Italian, I really appreciated the food and the atmosphere.  The hubs was checking out the cheeses and dried meats... YUM!!

But after seeing all that food, we opted for burgers.  Yup that is right, juicy burgers.  Mine was a green chile cheeseburger.

With a side of yummy sweet potato fries.

Our next stop was the Empire State Building.  We went up to the observation deck and by that time the fog had cleared and it was a perfect day for seeing NYC.

This is looking up at the very tip top of the building.

Here is the view of the Chrysler Building.  As Tina said, great NY Beauties on that building.

A nice lady offered to take this family photo.  I like it!

A view of New Jersey... Victoria can you see your building?? I think I can!!

And of course a stop at Times Square, the crossroads of the world.  Then we hoofed it back to Grand Central Station and home.

All in all we think we walked about 7.5 miles today.  Man, we were pooped!  But what a fun day!

Until Next Time...
