Walked across the Brooklyn Bridge
Went to the Brookly Bridge Park, had a mini photoshoot, played frisbee, and watched some surprise fireworks.

Kelvin and I, along with my older sister Janee–who came from California–took a trip to Manhattan, New York this month. We left the on the night of the 16th and stayed until the 22nd. My older brother Oliver and his wife Margy have lived there for the last five years but are leaving this August for India!  We had so much fun, it was great to see my family and have a sightseeing vacation at the same time. We were super busy, but we did everything we had planned to do, and my brother and his wife were wonderful hosts and tour guides. My favorite things we did was: the Photography center, the Broadway show, walking the Brooklyn bridge, and my favorite food was definitely Pio Pio!
