We needed to renew our passports within the next couple of months, and daddy decided that instead of mailing our passports to the consulate for renewal, we could all pay a trip in person to the consulate in New York City this summer. After weeks of deciding whether to fly or drive, we settled only days before leaving, that we would drive. This also turns out to be our first family trip ever – a road trip to New York City! We took the opportunity to stop by Niagara Falls on the way there, and Rock n Roll Museum in Cleveland, Ohio, on the way back.

Day 1 – on the road to Niagara Falls.

Day 2 – The Falls, then on the road to NYC.

Day 3 (Happy 29m old Micah!) – attending to business (Consulate), M&M store, finishing up business at Consulate, Times Square, visited Kieran and parents in Queens.

Day 4 – left NYC to Cleveland, Ohio.

Day 5 – visit to R&R Museum, heading home!

For the itinerary-in-picture to make sense, the photos below should be viewed in reverse order – from bottom up!

Sunny day at Times Square!



This is such a fun store!



I've got one pretzel M&M in my cheek pouch...



At Build a Bear store



Day 3 M&M store, NYC



I'm going to take a nap now with my bear woa woa.



After all that running around, Micah is ready for a nap in the car.



Resting my feet from all the walking - up & down the slopes... "Mommy, I'll sit with you!"






"I want to walk on the curb!"



"Look, more waters there!"



"It's windy!"



Day 2 Niagara Falls: On the way to the Falls.
