statues and barbeques

We woke up early Saturday and drove to NJ to pick up Grandma & Grandpa and Aunt Paulette. Hudson is still not a big fan of the car. At all.
We drove into the city and dined on Gray Papaya's recession special - two dogs and a yummy papaya drink. Hudson enjoyed his taste too!

 After a taste of the city, we headed downtown. We took the Staten Island ferry (for free!) which goes right by Lady Liberty. This is a great way to see the city and it is free! All the time! Not sure what SI did to get this perk, but it is a pretty fabulous perk! Before we boarded the ferry, Hudson enjoyed sharing his first NYC pretzel with Aunt Paulette.
 Hudson loved looking out the windows!

 A pretty good shot of the statue!

 Cozying up to Grandma & Grandpa!
 The ferry terminal at Staten Island had two cool salt water aquariums. Very cool!

Hudson was pretty tired after the city excursion so we headed home for dinner and a nap. Sunday we headed over to NJ to meet the extended family and enjoy a bbq. Hudson loved "talking" to the doggies and crawling from person to person in the backyard.

 Hudson loved the puppies...and hanging out with Gigi (Great-grandma!)

 He had fun playing with Aunt Carol...
 .. and singing with Grandpa..
 the three generations! I wonder if Hudson will be as tall as Grandpa!

 Hudson loved talking to Aunt Paulette...
...and Aunt Crisann too! 

The next day Hudson and Dave headed to NJ to hangout. Here is Hudson showing Grandpa how we eat our food..
...and hanging out with Grandma on the carousel! Too fun!
 It was a great visit!
