Goodbye, New Jersey

As it happens, another chapter in our life has come to an end... or begun. However you want to look at it. But to make a long story short, we are no longer living in New Jersey, but are now in Orlando, Fl. It was kind of a last-minute move, but we are definitely glad that we took the opportunity.

Here are some pictures from the last couple months in Jersey that I've been needing to post. There's quite a variety, so I hope you enjoy them! :)

Looking across the George Washington Bridge on an afternoon run. It may not look like it, but it is a LONG way down to the water.
I never got sick of seeing the GW bridge- it is absolutely huge!
Another sight that I never got sick of seeing- the city skyline. You can barely make it out in this picture- but it was so amazing to see while you were driving on the highway across the Hudson.
We took a trip to the Jersey Shore on a sunny Sunday afternoon with some of our friends. Blue skies and sun were hard to come by in the two months that we lived there. We saw LOTS of rain!
On the Asbury Park boardwalk

Playing football on the beach

I wish I could have seen these places 50 years ago when they were in their prime. The buildings along the boardwalk were amazing!

Nick took a day off so that the two of us could go into the city together. We went to Madame Tusaaud's Wax Museum because Nick had never been there. It's definitely a sight worth seeing!
Princess Diana
Obama.... and Nick's "half" thumbs-up. haha.
Yao Ming- I think my head went up to his stomach. Yikes.
Sitting on Broadway in Times Square
Giant chocolate syrup at Hershey's in Times Square
Speaking of Giant- Nick's favorite candy is Twizzlers. We found this at the CVS by our apartment and couldn't resist. We had a month's supply.
Girl's trip into the city

Another girls outing to the famous iris memorial gardens. I had no idea that there were that many types of iris- there were literally thousand of different colors and blends!
