NYC or bust!!!

We started off July with a trip to New York City.
Brit came along for the first couple of days, and got to enjoy the subway (once she made it through the doors that almost smashed her), also she will not forget the crazy cab ride back to the hotel after we got off the subway late at night in a not so nice part of town.
the Statue of Liberty,(way off in the distance, it really isn't that big)
and the Yankees-Red Sox game (The Red Sox won 7-0, which made Trevor very happy).
We also went down to ground zero, Time Square, and saw the Empire State Building. Although Brit was sad to leave Jake, she had a fun time seeing the sights and spending time with us.
After we left Brit at the airport to go back home, we started our journey to Cooperstown. The distance is not all that far, only about 215 miles, but traffic, the 1 1/2 hour stop at Wal-Mart and the winding roads made for a long day of driving.

We arrived in Cooperstown just in time for dinner and to get the boys checked into their barracks at the Dreams Park. The boys got to stay with the coaches the entire week.
The whole experience at Cooperstown was awesome. The boys played so well and made it to the Sweet 16 in the playoffs. Trevor hit 5 homeruns and pitched great too. In the end they tied for 9th out of 98 teams. We couldn't have asked for better weather. Tye decided to get to know my camera really well, and took a lot of terrific pictures. This is one of Trevor hitting one of his homeruns. I didn't even have to buy any pictures there, because Tyes were better.
