Back from Holidays....


Hello Everyone,

Gosh its been ages since I last blogged!  Sorry but I some how took the Summer off due to lots of projects at home.  Not sure where the time went but my Craft Room is all finished and working well.  I will show you photo's tomorrow.

My youngest son passed his A Levels to get into University, so its been very busy prepping for that, he starts on the 19th September Boo Hoo!!!

We have also been away for a holiday to New York.  What a fantastic time we had, just what we all needed to spend some quality time together before we get split up, enter sad face here!

Boy!  Did we walk.  We all ended up with sort feet but it was totally worth it.  We stayed in the Upper East Side, which meant we saw a real mix of all the sites.

We headed to the Rockefeller Center for our first site.  My hubbie and I had been before to New York before we started our family and it was at christmas time, so I think we had it in our heads to look for a skating rink and christmas tree!  We walked straight past it and then had to double back hee hee.

Cor! the sights up at the 67th Floor was amazing.  It looks dull in our photo's but we had some of the hottest days in New York's Summer.  Empire State Building and Midtown Manhattan here.


Central Park and Upper Manhanttan here.


There were so many lovely churches and buildings to look at and they were all sorts of colours.


We popped into Trump Tower for the Ice Cream Palour and the Restrooms!



We purchased a Bus Tour ticket, which was great to get off at different stops but the first day we stayed on and saw all the sites.  We walked through Central Park which was gorgeous and full of people doing all sorts.

These are my three boys!  Trying to get sensible photo's has been a problem the whole 26 years hee hee.


My hubbie and Eldest.  They are a couple of jokers when together.



See!


My Hubbie and Youngest.


We got in lots of HUGS during our Holiday before this one goes off to Uni!  Oh Dad...

A very hot Me!


We crossed the park to the Natural History Museum, which was fantastic.


We were all in Movie Mode, trying to come up with as many places we remembered from Movies.



The Bus Tour included a Boat Trip, this is Brooklynn Bridge.

Statue of Liberty.


On our last morning we went back to Central Park,


and we went to Central Park Zoo.

Look at these lazy Red Panda's, really reminded of Sid at home, who was being looked after and spoilt rotten by Gordon and Maria.




 I've come home to my lovely Stampin UP order of the New Autumn Winter Catalogue, so I hope to get lots done this week and will show you later.

Thanks for looking,
Jenny:-)xx
