Big Apple Photos

What a beautiful weekend in the city  I spent Mother's Day in New York City with my mother-in-law. It was their first time in the city and it was fun exploring some of my favorites with newbie eyes.

We had gorgeous springtime weather and tried to be outside as much as possible. 

Do you see that blue sky?  Loved it.  We hit of the Brooklyn Bridge.  Even though it was a bit crowed (when is it not) and there was construction I always get enamored with the construction of this massive bridge built way back when.

We took a little water cruise around lower Manhattan and checked out the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.  It is hard to imagine what it must have been like for all of the immigrants who passed through these waters to their new home.  It is crazy, sad and exciting to think about all at once.

Flowers were in full bloom and smells so fresh. 

And the buildings continued to soar into the sky. I think I looked up so much my neck began to hurt. I know my feet were hurting by the end of the day.  We walked so much.

I tried not to be the crazy daughter-in-law taking pictures of everything we ate.  I happily just ate.  I was OK with that role this weekend.  I hope you are too.
