New York City

On to 2005 and the trip to New York City.  This was not our first, but it was the first for our two daughters.  I had lost my mother to cancer a few years earlier and always said as soon as the estate was settled I was going to do something with the money that she never would have- in this case a week in New York City with the girls doing things they always wanted to.  Bracelet from Tiffany’s for Shawny- Manolo’s from Barney’s for Jaimie- Phantom of the Opera after a birthday celebration full of good food and great Champagne- you name it- we did it!

It was quite a memorable trip and following are just a few of the photos I took:

July is SO green in Central Park- I have seen this park in all four seasons now and I have got to say I think Summer is the best- flowers all over- great to jog or ride the carriage through- or better yet, just a nice stroll with someone you love.

This one always gets to me- and no longer there since the new construction of the actual memorial.

And then of course one of my favorite places to hang out while in New York- you see all kinds on this corner!

Enjoy! Kathleen

    There is no better place to celebrate special occasions. I am sure your mother was with you all the time you were there. It is so nice of you to put your photographs and thoughts. Thanks. Patricia.

  3. The perfect way to spend such money. I’m sure your Mom would thoroughly approve. Excellent set of images. I think it’s sad that the steel cross has been removed it was a very fitting memorial.
