Nick and I hit the road bright and early and spent our day visiting the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island with his 5th grade class.
Ellis Island was very interesting, lots of history there. To think that some of our ancestors entered this country through the very place we stood today was incredible. I could have spent more time in there but we were on a schedule so we had to move on.
I have been to the city often, but never took the ferry over to the Statue of Liberty...it was defintely something to see! They no longer let you go all the way to the top, you are only allowed up to the base of the statue. Security is pretty tight but it was so worth it.....the view is just breathtaking....what a piece of history!
I am so glad that I took the day off to spend some quality time with Nick, we both had such a great time together. He can't wait to go back, but next time he said he would like to have more time for shopping. Unfortunately, not my kind of shopping. If I know him, he has FAO Schw@rtz on the brain....
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
