On the way home we took a different route. Kevin gets antsy driving the same way too often. Since we were going so close by, we decided to stop at Battery Park in New York. The kids have been getting the State Maps and Books series by Highlights from Grammy and Grampa. (I think these are great and highly recommend them!) Josiah had already read the New York one and was excited to identify the Statue of Liberty. They were also having "Fleet Week" and we saw some huge ships in the Harbor. We are thinking of going back next year to go tour the ships and the Statue of Liberty.

There were lots of people lined up to tour the ship.We are hoping to do this next year.
