New York Liberty Trip

My sister and her family visited from Irvine California and we had to take our two families to The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. The trip was very special because this would be our first time seeing our parents names on the Ellis Island Wall. It is a wall of names of immigrants and it “celebrates the peopling of America.” My parents came to The United States in 1953 from The Netherlands. It was a somber yet enlightening day seeing my parents names and The Freedom Tower. the kids took a ranger quiz and were sworn in as Liberty Island park Rangers. We ended the day by running through an elaborate sprinkler system in Battery Park. It is such a nice day trip and the walk along the pier is wonderful. Excellent sights and a real nice path.
