Governor's Island

We ended up going to Governor's Island for Scott's birthday.  It is just off the tip of Manhattan, and we enjoyed it much more than Staten Island. It is a free ferry, the island is really close with views of the Statue of Liberty, and it is just quaint and nice.  If we had bikes we'd definitely ride them around the island.  I would go here just for the island alone, but luckily for us, there is a fun French carnival going on right now.  We had a ball riding with T and enjoying Scott's birthday together!  Here's a quick video (totally amateur) that really gives you a feel for the day, and of course, photos below.

 The girl LOVES Camelbaks.  She finished that bottle on the ferry ride over, which is about 5 minutes.

 Scott loves cotton candy and got it for his birthday... yep, this is what happened.





A great day to be a New Yorker!

So fun!! I think we're living a completely opposite lifestyle in the sticks :) I'm looking forward to making some trips to Seattle to have a few adventures!

Look at how many teeth on "little Scott"! Isn't it funny how a video tells SO much more than the equivalent pictures? Thanks for going to the work on that and so glad you got to do the carnival before it left!

I have never even heard of governor's island. How fun you got to experience the carnival while there (the story of her almost flying out was a little funny/scary). Cool that the ferry is free!

Tatum is the cutest little red-head! I can't get over it every time you post photos of her!
