NY and DC

Thanks to Brandon's Mom and Dad we were able to spend two weeks in July visiting New York and Washington D.C. We started the fun off in Rochester, NY. We got to visit all the LDS sites including Joseph Smith's house and the Sacred Grove. We also got to see the Hill Cumorah Pageant which was very cool.

We also got to take a trip to Canada to see Niagara Falls.

After an 8 hour train ride we arrived in the big apple. It was much like we imagined. Big, crowded and dirty. We loved it!

Not only did we get to go to New York but one of my life long dreams was realized when we got to go to a Yankees game. To top it all off, they won! If only Mariano Rivera had pitched my life would be complete. Maybe next time!

Next, it was off to Washington D.C. which included six tiring days of monuments, museums and a lot of walking.

Although it took us a few days to recover we had a great time.
