NEW YORK and NEW JERSEY (state #15)

September 16-19

Day #18-20

From Massachusetts we went back into New York (near NYC) and stayed with the parents of a recent T.I.M.E inters.  Her family is from Egypt and cooked us the best Egyptian food.  I love that my kids love trying new foods.

The following day we made two stops on the way to our friends’ house in New Jersey.  

One was in West Point, NY, at the military academy.  Wow.  Very impressive and a great museum.

 The second stop was in Hoboken, NJ, at Carlo’s bakery.  One of our teammates got my kids hooked on a season of Cake Boss.  Well, it’s filmed at this shop.  My kids were disappointed to not see Buddy or Cousin Anthony, but the cookies we bought were delicious.
And then we arrived in Monmouth Beach, NJ, where we spent a couple days picking apples and peaches, playing on the Jersey coast, enjoying the beautiful weather, and catching up with former residency buddies.  They served us a traditional New Jersey breakfast – ham rolls and typical New Jersey style pizza for dinner.

 Micah found/caught this horseshoe crab.  He loves beach combing.
