Some of our adventures included a Broadway show (Mary Poppins), Time Square shopping and restaurants, Rockefeller Center, St. Patrick's Cathedral, and a subway ride to China Town, just to name a few.
We had a great time traveling with the Lambson/Talley family too; although things were hectic at times (with 11 of us traveling, hotel and flight issues...), I was so glad we were there together!
Being in New York for the interviews also made me think of Lara Eustermann and the interview she did on the Today show a few years ago. I'll never forget that morning, I was getting ready for work when her miraculous story came on the TV. I was so amazed that she had survived a lightning strike and I remember thinking how brave her mother was and how hard it must have been with Lara's two young children witnessing the strike. I was sobbing! Little did I know that in the not so distant future, we would be facing a similar situation with Dane and Alex.
I've included the link to Lara's interview for anyone that would like to watch it. She has been Alex and Dane's biggest fan and we can't thank her enough for her words of encouragement and her inspiration!
Love to you and your family Lara!
Leslie (Dane's mom)
I thought I should add to the awesome pictures that Kaleen posted yesterday :)
