July 29 - NYC Day 3 Statue of Liberty


Today we went to downtown New York. We got on a boat and rode it to Liberty Island where we saw the Statue of Liberty. We got off and went in the museum. We got junior ranger badges. Then we got smoothies. Then we got back on the boat and rode it to Ellis Island. we stayed on the boat there. we rode it back to New York city. We got sketches of ourselves. Harm was the Statue of Liberty but she was holding an ice cream cone instead of a torch. Jay was Marilyn Monroe over a subway vent. Then we walked to the mega bus stop and started the long journey home.  I'm glad we had fun in New York but it made us appreciate D.C. where the crowds are smaller and the streets are cleaner.  Only Harmony would like to go back to NYC some day.

July 25 - Nationals v. Rockies Baseball Game


Today we went to a baseball game. Dad bought me some peanuts. Dad bought a pretzel for Harmony. We watched the game and got hungry. So dad, Harmony, and I left to buy lunch. While we were gone mom saw some guys dressed up like presidents race the secret service. Then later we needed the bathroom and mom saw a base ball bat shatter across the field!  At the end of the inning people would throw a base ball. They also threw shirts. If you caught it you kept it. The Rockies won!
