FUN WITH FRIENDS
It turns out, when I am selecting photos from vacation, that I tend to take all the ones with people in them. Even though I appreciate photos of the places we've been and the things we've seen, the ones that get me, that contain the things I most want to remember, are the ones with the people we were with in them. You can find fantastic photos of the Statue of Liberty and New York and Boston anywhere online, but if you want to see what I love, then here you go. Three posts coming up full of smiling faces :)

What wonderful photos! You look very "at home" ha! I love the shots with the people as well. They are the important part, and everyone looks so happy--like they are having a great time. I am so glad you did (have a great time)!

Re: From Megsie

We did have a great time! But of course, I didn't take pictures of any of the not so great stuff, haha!

Looks like a great time was had by all!

love the liberty groupie! :)

haha! Bryce bought a selfie stick while we were waiting in line for the boat...it sure came in handy!

Hee, hee... I read the caption under that first picture as "Elks in America", and was puzzled by the lack of moose in your photos :) Blind? Me?

What a wonderful selection of happy holiday photos - you look as though you had a ball. I'vw not seen so many happy grins in a long while.

It was a great time- although sorry I missed the east coast part of the trip- although I had a wonderful reason for not showing up! LOve, Lizardmom
