Much Needed Break

This past weekend my sister and I went to New York to stay with one of our best friends from grade school, Cassie, thanks for letting us stay! We had the best time and tried so many new things. Here are a few pictures from our trip. I have to say thanks a million to my husband who wasn't worried in the least about taking care of our 3 kids for 4 days......and his mom cause I'm sure she helped a ton too. :)

We went over to Brooklyn and ate at Grimaldis (greatest pizza!) then walk back across the Bridge.

This is the Manhattan Temple, we did a session Saturday morning, amazing to be inside so peaceful while the city is so crazy just outside.

I'm sure you've all heard of the play Wicked, well to see it on Broadway you have to plan months in advance and tickets are pricey, however they have a "lottery" where you put you name in for a drawing 2 hours before the show and hope that out of 200 people your name gets drawn I am still in shock but they pulled my name out I got two tickets, $25 each, and we sat front row. It was amazing we were so close the actors actually made eye contact with us.

Mani Pedis, this is how out in the dark I am I never even knew it is called a "mani pedi" so fun we also got our eye brows threaded, like waxing but with a piece of thread.....weird but it works great.

Food Food Food!! I thought i might be rolling off the plane after all the good food we ate.
We ate the best New York steak, Italian, cupcakes, ice cream, pizza, I tried Falaflas (vegetarian food), and much more.

Now I'm back to my town of 300, mopping floors, changing diapers, reading stories, making tents, doing laundry.........and I wouldn't trade for anything! Thanks Cassie and Anthony for a great escape!!

Sounds like you had a awesome time. I can't believe you won tickets for so cheap. That is great. What a nice break for you. You deserve it.

How fun! Savannah told me that you were gone to New York, and showed me her necklace you brought back for her. I'm glad you got a little break. My mom will be so jealous; she's been dying to go to NYC!
