They took a bus tour around the city this morning.
After that they went to The Battery.
It is a park on the southern most tip of Manhattan island.
The closest you can get to the Stature of Liberty without leaving the island.
Then it was to the Freedom tower and plaza.
And of course the 9/11 memorial.
Brent said he wished there wasn't so many people there......
After all that, they were given free time.
FREE TIME IN NEW YORK CITY FOR TEENAGERS!!!!!
But they kept in touch and everyone got back safe.
Madi did some shopping and eating with friends....
Dad went and saw the Intrepid and then also visited House 4....that is what they say when talking about the fire stations there.
He said they were cool guys and even gave him a shirt.
So that's cool.
They ate a good dinner, then went back to the hotel to change.
Then they got to go to a Broadway show......
The show they had tickets to was the Sponge Bob Square pants show.
I talked to dad....and he wasn't too impressed :)
Madi said it was funny.
But nothing she said she would purposely pay to go to.......
Oh well, I still think they had a fun night anyway.
After that, Dad went back to the hotel...he is so exhausted and ready to have his own bed and pillows (and me) back!
Madi went out with friends again.
They had a midnight curfew tonight...
And they have to be all packed up and ready to go at 6:30 tomorrow.
They might sleep for two days straight when they finally get home!
Back here at home we watched General Conference today.
I caught talks here and there, but I look forward to listening to it all again when the kids aren't around :)
But the kids had fun making forts, eating sugar cereal and taking notes.
In between sessions, we went to the Nielsen's house for lunch and a little Easter Egg hunt.
That was fun for the kiddos.
After the second session, Port and all the boys came over and hung out.
I got fun pictures of them making a fort with logs and covering it with grass to camouflage it, and then trying to shoot birds with a sling shot....
It is so fun to watch them with all the fun adventures they have.
I am both excited and terrified to see what they will be like as teenagers!!!!!!
Cassi hung out with Avery and the kids all spent some good time outside.
I spent time cleaning and then drawing....drawing plans for the next projects I have in mind :)
More conference tomorrow.....
Hopefully they can keep the house a little cleaner than they did today during conference!!!!!
