new york so far

1. We got to the airport in Austin on Thursday about 2 hours before our flight was supposed to leave so we ate lunch there and I got some yummy mexican vanilla ice cream from Amy's. I liked how the Austin airport had local food in it like Amy's Ice Cream, Saltlick, and Maudies mexican food.

2 & 3. On Friday we walked across the longest pedestrian bridge in the world. It went all the way across the Hudson. It took us like an hour to walk across it and back. It is in Poughkeepsie, NY. It was pretty cool. After that we went to eat lunch and then headed to Beacon(where Matthew's grandma lives and where his dad grew up). While there we sat out on his grandmas porch and I met his aunt and uncle and cousins. We ordered some local pizza. I was happy.

4. Saturday morning we drove to Beacon  and went to Madame Brette park. It had some small hiking trails that we did. After that we went to another park in another city for his cousins rehearsal picnic. I got to meet the more of his cousins and more aunts and uncles. They fed us lunch and had games to play. It was fun. After that we headed back to Beacon to spend more time with his grandma and family. For supper me and Matt walked down to main street and ate at a local diner. It was pretty good.

5. Sunday morning we drove to Beacon again and picked up two of his uncles and we climbed Mt. Beacon. It was a pretty hard hike but we made it all the way to the top and took in the view. We packed sandwiches to eat at the top for lunch. The going down was about 100 times easier than going up. After that we headed back to Poughkeepsie and spent the night eating and talking with the aunt and uncle (Matt's mom's brother) we are staying with.

Today is the wedding and tomorrow we are going to the city! Happy memorial day!
