S: NY/ DC Vacation 2012

FC: New York City & Washington D.C. | March 2012

1: Early Thursday morning, the 8th of March, we embarked on our week long adventure across the country. We flew into La Guardia Airport in NYC and took a bus that (we thought!) would take us to our hotel near Time Square. After being on the bus for a while, we soon discovered that we were on the wrong bus headed for the wrong area of NYC. We got off that bus and started heading towards the nearest subway station with all our luggage in tow, not having a clue where we were and how to get to our hotel. After some help from 2 kind police officers, we finally got to our hotel, showered, and explored Time Square, where we got some delicious pizza from the original Sbarro. The next day, we experienced life as New Yorkers walking and taking subways all around the city. We got to see the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and the 9-11 Memorial and get some amazing pictures of these landmarks and then head to Hoboken, New Jersey where we got to visit and taste some treats from Carlo's Bakery, from TLC's Cake Boss! After that we headed to Central Park and got to eat our desserts from Carlo's. After a long (very cold!) day exploring, we made our way to the bus station that was going to take us to Washington, DC. We arrived to Washington D.C. late Friday night and had to walk to the nearest metro station that would take us to our hotel. We weren't sure how we were going to make it to our hotel from the metro station, but, praise the Lord, we were able to get a taxi to take us the mile to our hotel. While this short trip ended up costing us $12, we were so thankful to finally make it to our hotel safely. We spent the entire next week visiting museums, memorials, and the capitol of our nation. It was such a neat experience seeing our nation's history and Jimmy loved being able to take pictures of the memorials. While it was a challenge experience learning how to use public transportation, we finally got the hang of it by the end of the week. Even though we had a fantastic time, we were ready to get home and see our family, sleep in our own bed, and drive our own car!
