It's been a while since Mike and I have been on vacation. We have a goal of paying off all of our credit cards before we do any pleasure traveling-- it has been a long road, but one I know will be so worth it in the long run. Anyway-- several years ago, for about five or six years in a row, my mom, my brother, Mike and I would travel to New York for a long weekend over the Memorial Day holiday. We would have a Broadway show marathon-- seeing about 5 shows in 3 days-- and also doing some great touristy sight seeing and eating at some fabulous restaurants. Such good times! I can't wait until we are able to do that again! For me, there is nothing like the excitement and energy of the Big Apple. I do love my relaxing vacations too, but I really heart NY!
These pictures were taken the year we visited the Empire State Building. We stayed at the Doubletree in Times Square and I believe we saw Spamelot, Wicked and a few other great shows. We ate at Norma's. Aquavit, the Carnegie Deli, and some other favorites. I love being able to just get out and walk everywhere! We did take a few taxis, and boy, those were thrill rides in themselves! Where is your favorite place to travel to?
I used Studio J to put together these pages quickly. The layout is fairly simple-- but you can add as much or as little as you like with Studio J. I love how you can just drop the photos in and they are sized automatically. I do wish I had known about photo editing software when I made this, though-- I would have lightened up the photo in the top left corner!
