There She Stands

Liberty means responsibility. That is why most men dread it. ~ George Bernard Shaw

I find this to be true, and it is a shame that we are walking further and further away from our responsibility.


On our way to see her.




Gosh I've been here more times then I can remember, but she is still beautiful everytime. You think it becomes ordinary, until you see her and your heart just jumps at the sight of her; at the knowledge of her meaning.



What is coming out of her nose??? When we took our older kids, it never occurred to them to do this.


She is magnificent.



Joe & Samuel were causing so much trouble, we threw them off the railing.


I jest of course. They were on the outdoors stairs.

This was their favorite part of the whole day. When you ask them what they remember, this is it.


Ellis Island


These 2 have no concept of walking.


The Great Hall. This is where the immigrants got processed. This is where they changed your name if they couldn't say it or spell it. This is the way to freedom. That is, of course, after you passed the 6 second physical.


Chasing seaguls.


Look at all the cool garbage I found!!!


Ellis Island on a small scale. When it was only 2 sections. The second section was built on trash.


The monument from one side...


Then the other.


Since there were no trees to climb....


Every year or so, we go see her...and remember.

She is beautiful. And I loved seeing her through the eyes of the boys.

I have never been to NY as you know, but someday ...

I can almost feel the energy pouring out of those boys! :) I would love to visit Ms. Liberty some day! What a fantastic opportunity you have. :)
Blessings my friend!
