NYC obsession 

There was one real draw to New York City, and that was the siren song of the Statue of Liberty. She’s been the focus of a number of school projects for Olivia – and was a downright obsession of hers by the time I visited the East Coast earlier this year. During the LaGuardia approach on that trip, I sent Olivia a photo – Lady Liberty was but a speck in the middle of the image, yet Olivia was transfixed. That sealed the deal in my mind – a trip was not only warranted, it was essentially required. While we were unable to secure tickets for the crown (as it is currently under repair), we did book pedestal tickets – worth every penny and then some. It also represented a first for me and Katie, as well as the girls.
