New York City Vacation

We had the chance to go to New York for almost a week. We had an absolute blast. I had a long trip there though, because first I went to Houston to Compounding Pharmacy school from 6/27-6/30. I learned so much, and realized how much I love compounding. When I got back on 6/30 Bill picked me up from the airport and we headed straight for Washington DC!

We stayed in a great location- a block from the Empire State Building, and two blocks from Time Square. We went Downtown to see:
the Statue of Liberty, Wall Street, Trinity Church,
The New York Stock Exchange (sorry Dad, they weren't giving tours),
Ground Zero, and we walked through Chinatown, Little Italy, and Soho; that's all in the first day!

We also got to go to: the Museum of Natural History, Central Park,
Grand Central Terminal,
the Empire State Building, the NBC studios,
and a lot of Time Square.
We also got to see the Today show,
The Fray (they had a concert on 7/2), The fireworks from Roosevelt Island, and Spamalot.

Needless to say, there's a whole lot to do in New York and we loved it!

Abe's Beach Day

So I've been meaning to blog about this for a while, but we took Abe to the beach about a month ago. He's been to the Oregon coast in the water before, so we thought that he would like the water at the beach here in North Carolina.

Well, he wasn't so fond of the waves, I've never felt him pull on his leash that hard!!! We figured out that he more of the beach bum type, he did love laying on the beach towel watching all the people.
