New York, New York

For my very good friend Dianne's 50th birthday she wanted a girls trip. So me, Jennifer, Dianne, and Natasha packed up our stuff and headed to the Big Apple. Dianne and I had never been and jennifer and Natasha were pretty much pros at the city. We were there 4 days and did everything there is to do. We saw a Broadway show: Sister Act, saw the Statue of Liberty, rode the subway, saw the twin towers, were on Good Morning America and saw a free concert in Central Park, rode in several scary taxis, China Town, Little Italy, Rockefeller Center, FAO Schwarz, ate pizza and canollis and cheesecake and bagels and the biggest deli sandwich ever!! it was a great trip and we had sooo much fun. I loved New York and cannot wait to go back!! Im not sure it is Chris' kind of city because there are so many people, but I think everyone should visit at least once. 

1st thing I had to do in New York was eat a cannoli ( or 14)

 9/11 Memorial: The best part of the entire trip. This was awesome!!

Real Italian food in Little Italy

New Twin Tower building
This is by far my favorite picture from the entire trip. While we did have a fantastic trip but, we got stuck in the LaGuardia Airport for 2 full days trying to get home. We ate there, slept there, stared at each other, and some of us cried there. We were so ready to get home yet were stuck. Finally on our 2nd night we got a flight out to Charleston and were finally able to get back to Atlanta.

We took a surprise trip to Disney in June and Ava had a blast. She has been wanting to go forever and we told her when she was 5 we would take her. Things just kind of worked out and we decided we would go ahead and surprise her with going before she was actually 5. We didn't tell her where we were going and finally at Downtown Disney she figured out where we were. She loved seeing all the princesses and she loved the rides and the whole experience. We can't wait to take her back next year when she is really 5!!
