More from our NY adventure

Our main reason for a visit to NY this past June was to celebrate Matt's Grandma's 80th birthday. It had been 4 years since our last visit and when we were there it was Christmas time and too darn cold to do anything. This year we were lucky because it was summer time and there was so much to do! The kids enjoyed seeing all the green and were amazed that there is wildlife there. Our goal was to get pictures of the many deer that would be on the side of the road but we failed the objective unfortunatly. It was a fun trip and the kids enjoyed spending time with cousins and experiencing something different besides the desert. We were able to stay with Matt's sister Meg. Isn't it a cute house?

We were also able to visit with Sal who I worked for when I was a nanny way back many moons ago. It was so nice to see him and meet his lovely wife. They were remolding the house that I lived in when I worked there and I hope to get to see pics when it is done!

We had loads of fun and I will just share a few pics of us and the fam there.
