Last week Dad and I visited my grandparents in the beautiful, green, slightly cold (only 60 degrees two days we were there!) state of New York. Actually, I had forgotten that I had started this blog post, so the details now might be a little limited, but at least you can see what it is that I have been up to.
We left home at about 4 am Tuesday morning to make our way to the airport. Pretty much all of Tuesday was spent traveling to there, so the adventures didn't really start until Wednesday when we (myself, Dad, Grandma, and Holden) made our way to Niagara Falls. Two years ago we went to the Canadian side, but this time we just stayed in the good ol' US of A. However, you can still see Canada in the background of some of these pictures.
Me and Grandma. Isn't she cute?
Dad aboard the Hurricane Deck. Why, yes, actually we were soaked by the time we made our way back to the top.
The sunset on the way home.
Day the next Dad and I went to Letchworth State Park. Actually we have been here before (two years ago), but decided to go again. This place is sometimes called the Grand Canyon of the Eastern United States. This day was just me and the Dad.
Aren't we vibrant?
And then we saw this deer as we were heading out of the park. Was it afraid of us passing by? Not a bit.
Our next adventure took us to Palmyra to attend a session at the temple and then spend a little bit of time in the Sacred Grove. Grandma came with Dad and I, and it was so nice to go there.
The last full day we were there (last Monday), Dad and I went to Rock City Park. We kind of arrived off the beaten path, but in the end we got there. We spent about an hour trundling along over the rocks and roots.
This is funny because when people think of New York, they always think of Long Island. We do not go to that part of New York ever. We only go to the Upstate part of New York.
A fungus among us!
And thus concludes a week in pictures.
Meanwhile, public school here has started already, and I did manage to land a job at another elementary school for this school year. However, I do not start working there until NEXT Monday. So soon I will be insanely busy working six days a week again, but I think it's OK. Also, I'm still trying to decide where it is I want to go to school next year. And, unrelated, I burned myself giving a dear friend cooking lessons last week, so I'm currently sporting a nasty large, red, blistery sore on my wrist. It's awesome!
