|Ben, Sis and Sam waiting with me to take the Water|
Taxi over for a little shopping.
|Once in Battery Park we had to take a picture of the|
Memorial for the Irish Potato Famine. It almost
all around it. It looks so real when you are close up.
|Taddington was welcomed with open arms|
into Whole Foods since he was a
Therapy Dog. I have to say, that small 4 pound
warm ball of fur helps me deal with the pain when
we are out and my legs start to spasm.
He is a huge blessing to me.
|A big surprise was a beautiful Edible|
Bouquet from Benjamin showed up
completely as a surprise. We all enjoyed
snacking on that for a while!
|We stumbled upon Rockerfeller Center while|
searching for Coldwater Creek.
|The children would like to come back and ice skate|
next year. It was fun to see in person what we
have seen in the movies so many times. Sam was
impressed with the giant Lego store.
|Headed back home we made our way|
to Grand Central to enjoy seeing the beautiful
ceiling. Sam had just learned about it in
school so it doubled as a field trip.
|We stopped for refreshments before we boarded the|
train. The kid stayed in their seat for a very short time
since a couple of less than sober bums came behind
them and the aroma become overwhelming.
|On the way to the trains we past the|
whispering place. We had just seen it on a
movie so the kids were thrilled to try it. It
actually works much to everyone's amazement.
|Being the vigilant scientist, Sam had to |
research it on his own to confirm the
hypothesis of perfect acoustics.
|Traveling up the long wide ramp to the|
Market area of Grand Central to get a
treat for the next day. Unfortunately,
they had just closed but it was fun to
|I barely had time to knit on my bookmark since we|
caught the express. It was moving so fast, my chair went
sliding a time or two. I got a few rows done though.
|We all enjoyed the beautiful flowers on our walk.|
|Sam was still full of energy as the rest of us began to|
wind down a little and looked forward to getting back home.
|On the way back to the PATH we found this beautiful|
fountain in a a park. It is only a block from the church
and it was a stunning park.
|Our way out was lined with flowers and trees and perfectly|
laid stone which was almost seamless.
|The Fountain itself was spectacular as was|
the sound it made. It was so relaxing after
a busy day.
|After our big day we needed sustenance so we settled down|
for Chinese food served family style. Service was
excellent and everyone enjoyed the dinner before we
headed back home.
|Even I got to enjoy a little of the food since they were|
willing to cook to my special needs.
|During a quick stop at Whole Foods on our way home|
we found this fruit. We weren't brave enough to try it
this time but what must it taste like??? It looks like
fruit that came out of a Si-Fi movie!!!
|Josh surprised me with some beautiful|
antique cream roses with rose colored edging.
The aroma consumed the house and they
opened perfectly making the bouquet a
stunning sight every single day!
|While shopping for the skirt, we found some tops with the|
same super soft fabric. I couldn't resist since my neuropathy
is so bad and this fabric felt soooo good against my
skin....I'd love a whole wardrobe out of it!!!!
|Unfortunately they were selling out of this fine fabric so|
they only had one other item to fit me. It was a camisole
to go under another shirt. It was a beautiful rose color.
|Another picture of my beautiful flowers.|
|I will end my Mother's Day Pictorial Story|
with the most precious four things in my life.
Each day is worth living and fighting for because
of these four people. I truly love them so
May God Bless and Keep You in His Grace,
