Tori’s Bucket List: Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island

Both Brennan and I love history (I minored in American History), and we will teach each of our children how to appreciate and enjoy history to the best of our ability.

Though Tori is young, it’s never too early to start introducing herย to history ๐Ÿ˜‰

Neither of us had been to the Statue of Liberty or Ellis Island – something we think
every American shouldย try to do – so this was a “first for the whole family” adventure!

We took the Staten Island Ferry to Battery Park, and then took the boat to the islands – five boat rides total.

While we were there, the weather was amazing and the clouds made for some stunning photos.

We were able to meet up with some of our Leukodystrophy Family while we were there, which was wonderful. The Serreno family came over to Manhattan and we had dinner together.

Tori was alert and content (except for nap times, of course) and truly seemed to be enjoying the scenery, the sounds, and the weather. We are so thankful that we had this opportunity! We were also glad our friends, Billy and Michelle, could join us on this adventure.

It was a great day. โ™ฅ
