Statue of Liberty

This week, we celebrated the end of the school year with my daughter’s friends by taking a special trip to the Statue of Liberty. My mother in law is on the board of Ellis Island, so she helped organize a special VIP treatment with guide and tour. It was a lovely afternoon and the girls will remember it for the rest of their lives — as will I. If you have not gone to the Statue of Liberty — I highly recommend. Especially at the end of the day when it is not crowded.


We took the girls out of school 45 minutes early so that we could go downtown and catch a ferry to give us time to explore Liberty Island.

So beautiful.

Up close and personal. We walked to the pedastol, but didn’t have access to the crown (only 500 people a day get to go to the crown).

The statue is HUGE. HUGE. HUGE.

Such significance this statue.

We had the best day! And absolutely loved being a tourist in my own city! Hope you have a great weekend!
