Our hotel was in Time Square and this seems great but every time we walked out the front of the hotel there were a ton of people and also guys trying to sell you stuff. Next time I will be staying off Broadway. (although I did a little dance just so I can say I performed on Broadway!!)
This was my favorite part of NYC, Central Park. It was so nice and you didn't even know you were in one of the biggest cities in the world once you stepped inside. There was a ton to see and do. We spent two hole days walking through the whole thing.
Jen is sitting on one of the huge rock formations in the park. This is what the landscape would have looked like before the city and this foundation allows them to build all these huge buildings. This is one of the few pictures Jen would pose for, but she is so beautiful I had to get one.
We went looking for the temple and at first we couldn't find it right away because it seriously blends in with the buildings around until we saw the Moroni right on top. Right below it and to the left of the picture is an art gallery.

The some came out shaped differently, in fact they seem to resemble something else that can be attributed to a Male's body. (pic below)When I came home Jen thought it was the funniest thing in the world, I cant seem to eat one though. Its just wrong!

I tried taking two photos of the area and put the together I overlapped some but you get the idea
Coliseum the holes are where they chipped the exterior away to use for other buildings mostly in St Peter's square
this was the floor those ruins were put in 10 years after it was originally built before then it was hallow and could be filled with water to reenact ship battles.
a view from the top of the Forum
This was called "The Arena" not sure what it was used for.

Italy part 1:
This week I had a meeting in Italy for my work, the meetings were in Milan, and so we decided to fly into Rome before taking the train into Milan. Rome is Aw some!!! I have pictures of the Vatican below, there will be other parts coming later.
This bowl is made up from a stone that no longer exists on earth it costs over 100 million dollars (saying this with my pinkie at my lips)
This was stolen from Egypt well taken I guess the Vatican cant steal.
Yep this is a dog feeding kids, I think it is a symbol of Rome of Cesar I cant remember my college class.
This was the palace of Stalin
I loved this ceiling, it was covered by paintings
The blue stone from this floor is from Haily's comet
This casket is made up from the same stone that the basin is made from.
This is a figure of the battle at Troy, this guy tried telling the Greeks that the horse was a trap and was dragged down by snakes sent by some god.

This is with Jen's grandpa and father with all the girls.
Both great grandparents, Mayson is lucky to have two Great grand fathers and two great grandmothers still with us.
I like this picture.
A neighbor made this cake for Mayson, it tasted great too.
