  4. Wow! you packed those days full...but what memories you made for all.

  5. I haven't been to NYC since I was a youngster. I love that you shared things from children's stories, I had no idea about these things. What fun to see you altogether.

  6. Thanks for sharing! I just finished reading a great biography about Hannah More, so enjoyed seeing her manuscript. My kids will enjoy the photo of Balto, due to some recent reading. It's all a long way from where we are in Australia.
