Hi everyone,

The summer of 2000 we drove to New York City and carried Gabrielle on vacation.

Gabrielle lay down on the back seat during the entire trip, from Virginia Beach, VA to New York City, unless we made a rest stop. When we got to the Renaissance Hotel in Times Square, where we stayed, across from the New York Stock Exchange, we all got out of the car.

Now I will share the picture of Gabrielle moments after she got out of our car to check into the hotel with us and show how Gabrielle carried her stuffed bear, she affectionally named Honey Bear, stuffed dog, and doll, everywhere she travelled.
