New York Part II

Yesterday we spent the day in New York, NY. It was awesome and Terrill planned a great day! In the morning we drove to Staten Island (1.5hrs) then took a free ferry to Battery Park (.5hrs). We are trying to save up our money to buy a house and so we now always take the lower cost alternative. By driving to Staten Island and then taking the ferry we saved $34 of transportation fees, as opposed to taking the NJ transit into NY!! Yipee.

The first activity of the day was going to the Temple, which was beautiful and a great start of our day.

Then we stopped at a cafe for lunch. I would rate it a 2.5 out of 5. But I wasn't hungry anymore when we left and they had a yummy peanut butter brownie. Please note below our skill in taking this picture. We propped the camera on the top of a garbage can...the only thing we needed was the flash! Oh-well.

The surprise activity was going to the American Museum of Natuaral History. We were able to get in for free since Terrill works for Accenture, but the Museum was amazing! We like stuff like this and when you are done you always feel like you've learned something new! We also got to walk through central park which was nice.

I hate bears.

By the end of the day we were tired from walking a lot. It is kind of sad to say :) This shot was taken on the Ferry back. Sweet dreams Terrill.

We left the house at 6:45am and got home at 8:00pm. Let's just say we slept well last night.


  1. I'm so happy to see how much fun you guys are having! It reminds me of when Steve and I were newlyweds and had just relocated to the Bay Area. We went on all sorts of adventures and sightseeing excursions, just enjoying the culture and each other. It builds a great foundation for later on, when the kids come along and suddenly, culture, history, and adventure take a backseat for a while. Enjoy it!

  2. I agree with everything Alyson wrote. I think it's wonderful that it's just the two of you right now, enjoying the sights and everything. How fun.
    Did you guys plan your matching outfits? =o) You're adorable. Totally miss you. Glad you're having such a good time.

  3. I love it! What a fun day. Good job Terrill:) Sister, come home to me...I know the east coast is great and all, but i need you!!!!! hehe
