I see it! This was back when it was closed for renovations, right?

It's ok, Lauren. The engineers are used to it.

I was a little worried about that boat tour after I booked it. I re-looked at the picture of the boat online and wondered if it was even seaworthy! 'Course I never told them that. But they loved it! They preferred that boat to some of the other, larger ones they saw.

I still have never seen the Statue.

It did look like a lot of fun on a beautiful day. --And that's exactly what I thought when they texted me that picture of them in front of the Statue, and I was sitting in a meeting at work.

Sounds like they had a very full day.
Hmm, I don't remember them saying anything about the size of the statue versus what they expected.

pretty neat.
I can't remember what was going on at the time....maybe it was on its way to the Smithsonian or something?

I'm so sorry I'm behind again (I really hate when real life gets in the way of my DIS life!).

Great updates, Lauren. Love the photos when you and your mom were at Top of Rock (great views of the City buildings). And that little cruise boat is just the size of boat I like to be on...not too small, not too big. You do a great job of describing the photos and your feelings.

since we are taking reflections as judy sightings..(not in this update mind you)

are we taking shadows?

if so i would like to file a motion to say 3 judys..the two obvious ones and the judy shadow on the table/plate where she is taking a picture of her sushi.

A great tour by the sounds of it. That Titanic-related-pic was very interesting. I guess they need all the space they can get in a city so dense.

Great updates

Congrats to Kelly! If I had been online when you finally posted (after stalking you all afternoon) I would have said two also. I think by the sounds of it, most on here would have, but since that guess was already taken you have to try and be creative and hope. And kudos to the Rules Committee for their use of family during the extensive research required to confirm the official answer.

I loved the hands on the camera answer because, well, everyone knows you can easily take a picture of the back of your own camera while you are holding it. Apparently whoever guessed that is oblivious to that little piece of info........ Probably an engineer or something............. I think you should get a couple extra bonus points in somebody's contest for that one...........

Love you Mark!!!

Again? REALLY?????

BTW, that boat of some kind that the Space Shuttle is resting on is the USS Intrepid, the WWII vintage Aircraft Carrier that was featured in the original National Treasure movie that Nicolas Cage "jumped" off of when he disappeared into the Hudson River. Knowing Lauren, I'm sure she would have thought this if she had realized.

Here in the 21st century, it is not uncommon for a teen to have her own camera. Or even to take a picture on a phone! What'll they think of next?

Not that I didn't love the harbor tour, because it really looked wonderful and lovely weather but I've loving the sushi pic. And the chopsticks pic, it's just a super cute one of Lauren!

Great narration and I can absolutely see why Judy picked that as her profile pic

Great updates, Lauren! I don't think I mentioned how much I enjoyed the Top of the Rock chapter - I was so busy getting my Judies in! Loved the Charlie Chaplin picture Great job on the boat tour, too. It was cool to see all the different architecture.

Yes. Maybe they're adding some interactive elements to the queue like Disney did with Space Mountain!

Although I see a bunch of people on the island, so I guess you could go out to it, but not in it.

No, I, I mean the Rules Committee, feels that including shadows would be too hard to keep track of.

That's one picture I asked Lauren about before I posted it....I knew that the picture was taken with Judy's iPhone, but I wasn't sure if they had taken another camera and if those were Judy or Lauren's hands. Lauren said that she had gone to a different level of the boat and those hands and camera belonged to another tourist, not Judy, who stayed below.

Ahhh, I did not know that. I've seen parts of that movie, probably not start-to-finish, but the kids have.

Thanks for swinging back with some comments.

My guess is that picture's from the movie "City Lights", the woman looks like the actress from it.

As their trip planner, I had to pull a few strings to get the space shuttle there in time for their harbor tour.
