life goes on...

we're home....
...and after 24/7 family time....
...hubby is back at work....
the guys are playing with their friends...
...and my daughter decided, at the last minute to go to volleyball camp
(had to clean all the clothes i just wanted to burn
and then repack :)
....anyway, i'm missing our time together...and missing her,
so i thought i would share some of the images from her camera....
....her trip
(left out all the crazy, jumping on the hotel bed pics
and the pictures of her shoes :)

she loved the empire state building....

enjoyed both soccer games (in dc and nyc) that we went to
...but not as much as her brothers did....
.
a pretty door that caught her eye

eveyone on the street knew this man....
...and she thought that was great

had to get a strawberry tart here....
(i'm all about the cheesecake)

and i introduced her to strawberry shortcake good humor bars
from my childhood....
she enjoyed the meeting so much that i think she had 3 on the trip

wall street sites....


walked thru here....
but she's not much of a shopper....

....but she did love it here
her absolute favorite store
(and mine, too....more about that later)
.
and she's 16....so, of course, this was her favorite place...... so we ended our visit there

Oh my, I went with my parents to NYC on a buying trip (mom had clothing store at the time) I was in the 6th grade I think. I was in shock! teehee. I did manage to come home with yellow sunglasses..big hit and not to mention -I got lost in Macy's the day we were going home. I was terrified. It was one of the biggest experences in my life. Kinda like taking a cat for a car ride! Great pictures though--brought back memories. :)
