This past weekend Nick, my parents, our friends the Mitchells, and myself all went to New York City! We went in celebration of our 30th birthdays this month and my mom's 60th next month! I also found out on our trip that it is the Mitchell's 40 wedding anniversary this year!
We had an amazing time! Even though it rained, it didn't stop us from doing anything.
We arrived on Thursday about noon and rode a limo to our hotel. That's when I started using the selfie-stick!
Most of the pictures were taken with my phone. The selfie-stick pictures did turn out a little blurry, so I apologize for the poor quality of the photos, but I think you can still see the fun we had!
We saw Buzz Lightyear on the way back.Matthew Morrison, and he was wonderful! I bought the soundtrack on iTunes, and I've been listening to it over and over again since I've been home (and Nick has too!). It was the story of James Barrie, the author of Peter Pan. I loved the way the story was told, and I cried all through the end. I would definitely see this show again!
It was a very grey day, so the pictures aren't great, but our view was wonderful!
After the tour we went to a restaurant called Freemans. The atmosphere was so fun and the food and drinks were just as fabulous.
That night we went to see Amazing Grace. This was about John Newton, the author of the hymn "Amazing Grace." This was also a good show, but the best part was at the end when the entire cast sang the hymn. Then they sang it again with the audience. It was so beautiful that it also brought me to tears!
This is a picture of the special drinks served during this show. The other shows had special drink names too, but this is the only one I took a picture of.
After the show we took another Uber ride over to our next dinner location. Before we ate, we walked around Chelsa Market. It was a wonderful market full of restaurants, stores, and other fun things.
Nick and I took one more walk around the surrounding blocks of our hotel (it was at he corner of Times Square) before going to bed. We had a wonderful trip and loved everything about New York. It is a cool city with interesting people, fun entertainment, and good food! Thanks Lovie and Doc for an amazing trip!
While we were gone, these people stayed home with CiCi and Pops. Thank y'all for keeping them. We came home to a house of balloons and Happy Birthday signs! Thanks to my sister and her family too for watching them some too!
Millie also cried for about an hour after we got home because she didn't want us to come home yet because she was having too much fun. I think she was also worn out.
We are glad to be home and with our little people again, but I still can't stop thinking about our trip! I keep replaying the shows in my mind as I sing the songs, and every cup of coffee I drink doesn't quiet measure up to the $7 cup of coffee at the museum.
Happy 30th to Nick and me and Happy 60th to Lovie!
