What a wonderful town!!!

New York, New York!!

Okay so after a stressful Standby flight experience,we made it to New York at six am. Being on a Red eye Flight and not being able to check into our hotel until 4:30pm, We had tons of time to kill but too exhausted to do anything. We decide to take a shuttle from the airport to our hotel because like I said we had tons of time to kill. It took the shuttle three and a half hours to drive from JFK to our hotel in the heart of downtown NYC. It should only take a 25 min drive 35 tops with traffic. I think I would have been livid but I just took a nap and enjoyed the ride.

We stayed at The Hotel Roosevelt

It was beautiful and very cheap and great location about a 10 min walk to Times Square.

Finally we got to take a nap and a good nights rest and woke up to go take a tour of Statue of Liberty and then a Ellis Island with Matt and Bek and the kids.

It was a lot of fun and I was really excited to find out if my great grand father came through Ellis island. But to my disappointment apparently none of my family knows if he did of didn't. Including my grandpa, his son. I guess I need to get going on my genealogy.

We also vistited Rockefeller Center
H&M- My favorite Store in the whole wide world. Wish they would bring one to Utah!!

Saw Times Square Fire Station

LOVE New York; your pictures totally make me miss living back east. I loved being able to spend time in the city. And H&M is one of my favorite places too! At least there's one in Vegas.

That looks totally fun. I am pretty much always craving a vacation so I'm a little bit jealous.
