Graduation and New York City

Near the end of June we were lucky enough to be able to attend my niece, Dagny's, high school graduation in New Jersey. It was definitely the fanciest graduation I have ever been too. The rain made it impossible to hold graduation as the school would have liked, but it was still beautiful. The women all wore white dresses, while the men wore white dinner tuxes. All of the women received a dozen red roses.

After graduation the grads went out to dinner at a country club, while the families took a quick tour of the graduation party location. All students who attend the graduation party are locked in all night long, but who wouldn't want to be. There was a casino, dance stage, pin ball machines and of course food to chow on throughout the night. Their entry even had an ice sculpted front desk.

The next day my parents, Kyle and I headed into NYC to walk the main drag and visit central park. The park is so much bigger and more beautiful than I thought it would be.
There was an amusement park right in Central Park. Not sure if it is there all of the time, but they certainly have the space for it.
We headed for the zoo, as Kyle and I love zoos.
 Not all of the animals were happy it was late June:
I just loved the glimpses of NYC throughout the park.

The zoo was even better than we thought it would be. If you ever get the chance, visit the oasis that Central Park is right in the heart of the city. You'll be pleasantly surprised how quickly the city disappears.
