Day 6 of my trip (April 6/07)

This pic is for my friend. Yep, it is the Empire State Building. We headed into the city and went straight there. It was a really long wait to get into the building, and even more of a wait to get tickets and then a wait to get on the elevator going north. In the end it was well worth the wait. It was cold, and windy with a few snowflakes on top.

After our visit to the top, we got into a taxi, whoo hoo and headed to Central Park. We had a long walk enjoying the day in the park. The sun peaked out for a bit of the day which was nice. But spring hadn't really arrived in the park. The lawn was blocked off for the seed grass to not be trampled. There were a few trees in bloom, but over all they were mostly still brown.

Then I convinced my dad to go to the Met. It was fantastic. A little bit of ancient Egypt, a little George Washington, a little baseball, a little Monet. Fantastic end to my fantastic week in NYC!! Loved it. Must go back for more!!

I LOVE that picture. LOVE it. You must blow it up for one page and have the journaling, hidden or otherwise, on the other page. The pictures are good; much better than I was expecting. Loved this entry, KJ. I'm proud of you!
