New York in July

We came back home from California in July to a hot sticky summer! I was pretty miserable until we got air conditioning in our apartment (our living room got up to 93 degrees!) Once we had a place to escape the heat we had fun exploring the city and heading out on the LIRR to Long Island for beach days.

The bottom left picture is from one night when we had run out to the store around the corner...when we left our doorman told us that there was a storm coming and that we should probably stay in. I really wanted an orange and we had to walk karma anyway so we decided to go quickly before it started raining. I had no idea how quick storms move out here! It didn't take long for the thunder and lighting to give way to pouring rain. Needless to say our doorman didn't look to happy with us when we ran back through the door looking like we had just jumped out of the pool! 

Ryan's old room mate Brandon and his wife Brittany came and stayed with us for a few days. I had time off while they were in town so I got to show them around a site see along with them during the day. We went to ground zero, saw the stock exchange, walked across the brooklyn bridge, ate good New York pizza, rode the Staten Island ferry to see the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island..just to name a few things! It was so fun having them here, we love visitors!
