Alice is in Central Park

On our family adventure in New York this past summer, we spent many hours walking through the fabulous Central Park. The family all marveled at the wonder located in this huge park in the center of the massive city. What an amazing place with so much to see and do!

We visited many of the monuments and statues throughout the park, but I especially liked the Alice in Wonderland sculpture. A truly amazing piece of are inspired by amazing literature!
