Lions, and tigers, and bears, OH MY!


It was Amazing! It really is worth going if you are ever in the area. The park was so big, I don't think we even got to see all of it!
Hunter got to come with us, so that made us happy! We saw so many animals, the girls had a blast!~even the sleeping baby Aliyah!

We did tons of walking but worth every step! We even rode camels!
Jasmine enjoyed it, Aliyah was scared the whole time, she didn't know what to think, she kept grunting to get off! It was funny. We got to capture how fun everyone was having! Enjoy the pics.

We're off to see the Wizard

So if you have ever heard about the Broadway play "Wicked" you know how AMAZING it is. If you haven't heard and could care less about Broadway, this is the one you should break the rule for! It was down right the best play I have ever seen in my whole 32 years of existence! I went with my beautiful mom and we both were blown away we knew that we would definitely see it again. Well guess what your dream and our dream has come true because it is coming to Utah April 2009! WORTH EVERY PENNY. Save your money and go. Or tell a guy that wants you to go on a date with him that he must take you to it or else! Ha, Ha!

Real quick it is about the 2 witches from the wizard of oz. The story before Dorthy ever showed up!

P.S. I got tons of souvenirs that I love! (thanks mom (well and my dad too, because I'm sure it was his money), without her I could of never gone in NYC)

Who says I can't be Ghetto Fabulous?!

So while at battery park a "sista" stopped me and practically begged me to get my hair cornrowed so I did. And so this is me getting my "hair did" LOL Aren't I ghetto fabulous?!

Ground Zero and Battery Park

So My mom admits that she can only do one thing a day,because I had this huge list of things to see in New York today and she was like "lets just do one or two and then go from there" LOL. So today we went to Ground Zero where it was just a big construction site,but still neat to be there.

We then went to a 911 tribute memorial, which was so packed that it started not to be enjoyable, but then I complained to the front desk and they suggested to do the tour backwards and that turned out to be perfect. It was an indescribable feeling that was there. There were pictures of all the people that died in one room, like a big collage. In another room, tons of stuff they found in the mist of the rubble, two that caught my attention was an airplane window that made it and a stuffed animal lamb from a child.
We then walked to Battery Park where you would get on a ferry and go see the statue of Liberty, but my mom's stomach didn't feel so good so I could tell she really didn't want to be in the heat on an overcrowded ferry, so I told her "not a big deal" I could see the statue of Liberty and get the gist of the whole thing. It's cool to see it FINALLY, after all my life hearing about this thing and the meaning of it all, regardless how small it looked from the park.

The Museum of Natural History

First day out to New York with my mom here was The Museum. We rode the train into New York and then took the subway. It was a real cool experience, aside from the fact the million of school groups there! Not a quiet atmosphere like mom would of expected but none the less COOL. The girls loved it.
