It's been more than a while since I blogged but thanks to a gentle kick in the pants from my friend, Lisa, I'm here writing a long overdue post. Thanks, Lisa! LOL
I hope you've been having a good winter. We've had our share of both cold temps and snow so far but we didn't let that stop us hearty New Yorkers. School has been closed this week for winter break. Jim is on vacation so we've had a very much needed week to have some fun and reconnect as a family.
We decided to take a trip into Manhattan and finally go see the 9/11 Memorial. None of us have been down there yet so I guess it was time.
Here are Logan and Caterina on the subway as we headed into the city.
Here's a picture of the Memorial. It was a very powerful scene. The sound of the water was loud. I'd seen the Memorial on TV but I never thought of what it would sound like. Due to the cold, there was a coating of ice on the walls beneath the water.
Another angle of it.
This building will be the museum when it opens.
I wish the events that caused this memorial to be built never happened but I'm glad there is a memorial, and a beautiful one at that.
This was just the beginning of our day. I'll write about where we went after this later.
Wishing you all a peaceful night. Thanks for reading.
