hi! we arrived in colorado a few days ago and it’s GORGEOUS here! and can you even believe it, we needed coats this yesterday morning when the kids woke up and went outside for a bit before breakfast! what?!
anyway, i’ll share more later but wanted to share a bit from last monday when we visited the observatory deck at the world trade center in the city. we visited the memorial last year and had a really special experience, so we’ve been excited to go back to see the tower with the kids and the incredible views of the city now that it’s finished.
those views of all of new york at the very top are something else! the elevator ride up though might have been our favorite part. it’s maybe a 45 second ride, literally blasting you up to the top!
here’s a few photos from our monday there…
oh man, the bottom of my shoe in this photo. welcome to new york. :/
ps, my shirt is from here. and i had to buy it in both colors cause it’s making all my nursing dreams come true.
here is a shot of eleanor in the elevator on the way up. they show a pretty incredible time-lapse video that shows what the view from the elevator would have looked like over the last 500 years.
these views are just breathtaking! after all these years living in this crazy beautiful city, i’m still in awe of it every day. i feel like samson every time the subway train is approaching the station, haha! he freaks out and his jaw drops and he even starts to clap! i’m the same way every time i’m in a tall building that has any sort of view of new york.
also, we are suckers for food shops and had to stop by their little dining spot at the top. this guy and his pretzels!can’t believe these three beautiful children right here are mine and also, that they are growing up in this incredible city as their home base. all of my loves in one picture (well, josh is off to the side, and there aren’t any chocolate chip bagels in this photo either, so never mind…. a few of my loves in one picture.)
