Friday Round-up | New York Family Photographer

First day of Spring! And we are due to get five inches of snow later today. Wah wah. Hopefully that's the end of it though (knocking on wood NOW). I got our renewal application in the mail the other day for our Empire Passport and I am so ready to get back to our outings to Jones Beach and exploring the other state parks in our area. Even Lila has been asking lately if we can go to the beach! If you live in New York, the Empire Passport really is such a good deal - $65 and you get free parking at all the state parks for a year! Its worth it to us for Jones Beach alone, which costs $10 to park. We also use it a lot at Planting Fields Arboretum.

And now, grab a coffee because I've got some links coming at you!
