Everything in this photo was sooooooooo gooooooood..... The Lobster tails were as delicious as they make it look in the show.
Buddy... the kid... was working in the shop when we came through... so I screamed his name and asked him for a photo. His mom was in the back and on the phone...
This is the guy that took our order and helped us navigate through the chaos.
We had two boxes that looked exactly like this.... One for now... and one for later :)
The ferry ride circled the Statue of Liberty on the way to Ellis Island. It is soooo much smaller in person than I thought it would be. In the movies, the statue looks sooooo freakin huge.... so when we saw how small it was in person... I was pretty bummed.
I was surprised how pretty this photo looked.
I've seen this entrance in several movies... and it looks soooo pretty in person... We took over a hundred pictures in this building alone.... it was so big.
We found these sister missionaries working in the genealogy center. Apparently missionaries always go there to help tourist find their ancestors. I was so surprised to see them.... and they were so happy to know that we were having dinner later with Elder Tuaila...lol...
This portion of the building was featured in the movie Hitch with Will Smith. The meaning behind what took place here is lost in the movie... but going through the tour and ending up in such a beautiful and spacious area made me cry.
After the tour, we had to wait a little bit because we needed to take the Ferry that goes back to Jersey. This was the perfect time to kill what was left from Carlo's Cake Boss Bakery.
One thing I noticed about all the parks was the seating area. There are just so many benches and seating areas everywhere. I wondered why people weren't out on picnics or something all the time.
We ended the day meeting up with Elder Tuaila (Tino) who was serving a mission in Jersey. We met up with him and one of his families.
To say that this day was a very productive day would be an understatement. It was such a long day... but so exciting. I got to see a lot of different places and eat so many different types of food throughout the day. So much FUN....
