Autumn in NY

I love Frank Sinatra music. And since we were actually there in the Fall I thought it would be a perfect title.
Douglas finally got done with some of his harder rotations in 3rd year, and we thought we'd take a little trip. Then we found out that he had the Friday off the weekend we were planning on going, so BONUS! 3 day weekend in NY. The original plan was to see Sleepy Hollow, where Washington Irving lived and is buried, and the setting for his famous story. We thought it was a great "Halloween-ish" activity to do. And with the extra day, and Sleepy Hollow being only 30 min from NYC we decided to show the boys the Statue of Liberty as well.

We had a great time, even though it rained most of Friday. And the boys were pretty excited to see the statue in real life instead of just on their puzzle map. We didn't see the actual headless horseman, but we did see the grave yard he was suppose to rise from each night to find his head.
And as for Halloween? Well, we went Asian this year...
