We toured the city including The World Trade Center which was an amazing building. He took me to some wonderful restaurants too. All of that was fantastic and I enjoyed spending time with my dad. The only thing that I was bummed about was that we were leaving the night of the Fourth of July which meant I wasn't going to be able to see any fireworks. Boy, was I wrong!
Our plane took off about 9:30 that clear evening. To my surprise, I was invited to the BEST fireworks display EVER! As our plane soared into the sky, I could see for miles all around New York City all the fireworks going off. It was amazing to be on top of the display. It seemed like there were over a dozen places that were having shows. The view from the plane was magical!
So as we celebrate our country, I hope that you will celebrate your family as well. How about taking a trip with one of your children all by themselves-maybe for their 13th birthday or some other birthday. It is never too late! The memories will be precious.
Happy Celebrating and Sipping, Lisa
