well the family terra lila violet and i, had our vacation this past week in the poconos. Shawnee on the deleware, my dad owns a time share there and i have been going for 30 yrs now. i love it there. nothing much to do except eat and go to nyc 67 miles away which we did twice. i took the kids to the national museum of natural history in nyc. by the way it is nothing like the movie night at the museum with ben stiller. (Lila was not a happy camper she loves that movie) the museum was ok nothing spectacular but ok. word to the wise they dont advertise this or tell you this but when you purchase the tickets for 2 adults it comes to $48 affraid well here is the seceret dont pay that price it is a suggested donation but they dont tell you that you dont have to pay anything or you can give them what ever you want to donate, i donated my sock it had a hole in it. the museum is on 80th and central park west we found a free parking spot right in front of the doors, they must of heard i was coming. we decided to walk to times square 36 blocks later i found out one thing im fat and dont like to walk, holy chaffing! we ended up on 42 street and by this time we were hungry, we ate ny style pizza holy crap its great cheers lila loved nyc she said she wants me to put tv's all over the outside of our house like those buildings. we went into the toys r us store and of course you know we spent money there with two girls and me the girls got nothing and i walked away with an rc helicopter, WARNING: if the rotating blades hit you they will hurt you . BADLY wow the welts it leaves. i played with it for hrs and all of sudden the thing went rogue it went after me and the children there were bodies running all over the place Sad . we spent a great day there.
we also went to the Martin guitar factory in nazareth pa which is awesome tour of hand built guitars, lila realy liked so did terra and me. it is about 45 minute tour and is free.

we went back to NYC for our second trip tis trip had a purpose we got tickets to go to 9-11 memorial. this memorial is unbelievable, so sad, so beautiful, so surreal. at times you forge what it is that your there for untill you see young teen age kids or men and women crying uncontrolable. then you come back to reality. i took so many pictures here are a couple i have so many pictures i can share a link. great pictures of the kids and such.

oh one more thing we got back from nyc around 7 and i let the kids and terra off at the parking lot of our time share and went to get blizzards. 5 minutes later i got back and trash cans were knocked over. i was thinking how did the racoons knock over those big rubbermaid like dumpsters, when my dad says bear. im pretty sure i heard him but it didnt compute i said what and i heard a faint voice saying "bear" i turned to see what my dad said and he was now 20' away pounding on the window of my car yelling let me in. i then heard a grunt right beside me yep 8-12' beside me on all 4 feet a black bear looking right at me. my very own father left me for dead affraid i ran to the car and was able to get a picture not very good but here it is

I love the picture of Lila and Violet posing; they are so cute. You can send us a link to the 9-11 Memorial because we would enjoy seeing them. Thanks for sharing your vacation pictures and experiences.

Great pictures. You're girls are adorable. As for you're Dad and the bear, Bob always tells me he only has to outrun me, which certainly wouldn't be a problem. Seems your Dad thinks the same way Sad
