When planning our vacation, the idea of NYC came from Mylea's love of the Statue of Liberty and "Annie". We aren't sure when Mylea came to love Ms. Liberty but she was ecstatic to finally see the Big Statue.
Walking to the ferry and Mylea could see the statue way out in the distance.

Friday evening the boys headed to Yankee Stadium to catch a game. Mylea, my mom, and myself had our on planes. First on the agenda was the American Girl store. We were there for what seemed like hours! It was 3 stories with lots to look at. This store was outrageous! There was a doll hospital, hair salon, cafe that served you and your doll, displays for all the retired dolls, etc.
Mylea loves the original dolls (Molly, Emily, Samatha, and Kit). She received Molly for her birthday and picked out Kit in NYC. We even had her ears pierced and gave her some hearing aids.
The 2013 American Girl named Saige.
We had supper at Guy Fieri's restaurant. It was alright. We ended the night with some sightseeing before we decided to hop of the double decker bus and take a night tour through Manhattan, the little communities, and Brooklyn.
The crowds on a Friday night
When the tour was finished, we met up with the guys at Junior's Cheesecake for a late late night dessert. Poor Mylea fell asleep at the table for her cheesecake arrived.
Landen and I have been married since 2002. We have two daughters who are gifts from God. Leightyn was born in 2005 and went to sing and dance with Jesus on August 7, 2010. Mylea was born in 2007 and is my rainbow on a rainy day. This is our journey of raising our girls to love God with all their heart.
