Saturday Snapshot: NYC!

So last week we dropped the kids off at summer camp and went to NYC for a few days. As always, we love the Big Apple and had a great time!

Here are a few pictures from Central Park and the Met’s fashion exhibit. I will post more pictures next week.

Saturday Snapshot: Trip to Florida

We took a short vacation last week to celebrate the end of school!

Just a few days away, we spent time at Disney and Epcot and also went to the Kennedy Space Center (new for us).

It was a sad time to be in Orlando, but we will be back!

Here are a few more pictures from our trip to New York City for New Years:

The decorations are amazing at this time of year! Here are the kids standing by a random beautiful wreath!

We always to go to Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral – here’s the kreche – almost lifesize – at St. Pat’s.

The Empire State Building had a whole lot of great displays for the holidays!

The infamous tree at Rockefeller Center!

Speaking of St. Pat’s — it has been under reconstruction for a while — looking good, but still a long way to go!

Saturday Snapshot: Christmas at our House

We love this time of year – Christmas!
Here are some pictures of Christmas at our house. We like to have two trees – a real one in the living room with our family (and breakable!) ornaments, and an artificial one for the kids in the family room with their ornaments.

Happy Holidays to those celebrating and Happy 2015!

Saturday Snapshot: Montserrat, Spain

At the end of our August trip to Europe for the Disney Cruise, we went to Montserrat, outside of Barcelona. What a beautiful place! It is about an hour outside of the city, reachable by train, up in the mountains. Traditionally, Montserrat (meaning “serrated mountains”) was a destination for religious pilgrims. It was so amazingly beautiful. While there, we went into the cathedral and saw the famous “black virgin”. Beautiful and interesting little side trip!
