4th of July with the Rigneys

Robby’s family tradition is to spend the summer at the beach. And if not the entire summer, definitely July 4th!

This year, we went to Port Aransas, TX and enjoyed a week of the ocean, sunshine, great food, and lots of family time.  I’ll let the pictures tell you more.

New York City 2014

For my mother-in-law’s birthday, we (Jenny, Kayla, and I) decided to take her to The Big Apple.   Greta had never been before and we thought it would be a fun trip for just the girls!

We had a great time being typical tourists.   We saw the Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge, took walks through Central Park, ate at Serendipty’s, Juniors, and Gray’s Papaya’s, took the subway, went to the top of the Empire State Building, walked (a LOT), enjoyed broadway shows, and much much more!

Here are a few pictures of our fun time!

We met up with Annie Rigney, our cousin, while in Manhattan. We had great Moroccan food while we visited.

 

And there you have it!   A great trip full of fun!

Happy Birthday, Greta!
