Who: Laurie Tinkey, Gwen Tilton, Walt, Steven and Laura Kaweski.
Hometown: Lodi and Sacramento.
Vacation spot: We are childhood friends, and Walt is a published author. He was invited to speak in New York City, so we went to hear his speech, explore and have fun.
Highlights: We had a blast! We are all Apple fans, so we visited the new Apple Store in Grand Central Station. We saw “Phantom of the Opera” together. Gwen and Laurie were guests on the Anderson Cooper show and got to meet him, which was really exciting. Laurie had visited the World Trade Center when the towers were standing; then had taken her grandson back to see the hole before they started re-building. It was breathtaking to see the Freedom Tower being built, and it reached the height of the Empire State Building the day we were visiting both buildings.
