New Year's Eve in New York City!
Despite snowy/artic conditions of historic proportions, we were determined to go see THE State of Liberty while in New York, and boy did we see her! Take a look at the day's weather conditions...
This is a view from the taxi on the way to Battery Park...the taxi in which its driver laughed when we told him what we were doing! The pic doesn't even begin to do justice to the type of weather taking place on that day. Once we exited the taxi and made our way to board the ferry, all Carol and I could do was laugh hysterically at our hair! Why we bothered to "fix" our hair that morning escapes me! We looked like drowned rats but could have cared less...we were on our way to see one of the most amazing symbols of freedom in our country!
Finally on board the ferry, and on our way! The view was beautiful!
The boys were such troopers!
Three generations of Soladays!
There she is....absolutely breathtaking! I cannot explain the feeling of seeing The State of Liberty in person as an adult and understanding its significance.
The scenery was so picturesque!
Once we made it back to Battery Park, we decided it was time for lunch....at the ESPN ZONE! Preston and Austin couldn't wait!
While we walked to catch a taxi, we saw this sculpture which was taken from Ground Zero...It was amazing...barely touched in the explosions...Seeing significant parts of history in person is such an emotional experience...It makes it so real.
What a great day!!
