The rest of the trip…

Sunday, November 21, 2010

We are now safely home and happy to be here.  There’s something to be said of the comforts of home.  It was great to get away, relax, see new things and enjoy time together, but being home, I’m not sure I want to leave any time soon.  Good thing, because I have way too many projects planned:)

After we left the cape we ventured down to Stamford CT for a few nights so Alex could play golf.  We got down to one round of golf this trip, pretty good if you ask me!  So while he headed to the golf course I stayed and relaxed in our hotel catching up on my Precept Bible study.  Alex was lucky enough to cross a very well known course off of his top 100 list, Winged Foot Golf Club.  He was all smiles:)

From Stamford we headed into NYC.  This was a really fun part of our trip not only because NYC is fun to explore but it’s even more fun when you get to see friends as well.  One of my really good friends Emily and her husband Ernesto have lived in NYC for the past 2 years.  We don’t get to see them that often so it was really fun to get dinner and brunch with them.  Also our friends Brandon and Becky just moved to NYC from MN so we caught up with them one night too!

We also headed to Ellis Island and it was so interesting.  Alex’s grandfather actually immigrated to the US when he was 9 years old, so we were able to look him up and read the ship Manifest.  Very Interesting!  Other than seeing friends we walked until our feet hurt and ate until our stomachs were full!

From NYC we hopped on the Bolt Bus and headed into Washington DC.  For the next 5 days we slowly made our way through all most of the museums and took in loads of history.  Highlights included a turn on the Segways, the Spy Museum, lots of Potbelly Sandwiches, and plenty of election coverage.

Like I said, we’re happy to be home but very thankful for the time away!
