Well, we just returned from a trip to NYC. It was really a strange trip for me. Everything seemed so much more crowded and dirty than I remember it being eight years ago when I moved south. Maybe I've just gotten used to the slower pace of life and the wide open spaces of country living. If you had told me 10 years ago that I would be living in the country and be able to hear farm animals when I sat outside on the porch, I would have told you that you were nuts! I was born and raised in NYC. I spent the first 10 years of my life in Brooklyn and the next 12 in Staten Island. Aside from going away to school in Indiana, I has never lived outside the city. Now when I go back to visit family, I can't believe I ever lived there.
We had a wonderful time visiting with family and revisiting my favorite pizza place, my old babysitter, our old church . . . some things hadn't changed and other things were so completely different. The kids had a wonderful time and being raised in the south, they talked to everyone they came in contact with. I think they freaked some people out with their friendliness and their fearlessness. I just thought that I would share some pictures from our trip. There are some of the boys eating Italian Ices and Spumoni and a couple of them playing at the park that I used to play at when I was little.
I can't figure out how to get the pictures at the end of the blog post so, I'll just leave it as is.
