NYC

We had a wonderful (long) weekend get-away to New York City without the kids. Neither Ken or myself had ever been there before and we were totally excited. The one black mark on our trip was the stagehand strike that closed all of the Broadway shows we had tickets for. Luckily, we were able to get tickets for 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. It was fantastic! We also saw a couple of off-Broadway shows that were entertaining.

Everything else we loved. We got to visit my awesome friend Celia! She was kind enough to let us stay with her and show us around the city. The buildings were absolutely incredible! The concerts were fantastic! The cheesecake...oh the cheesecake! I also loved getting caught up with some great friends from High School. We saw Norris Chappell and his wife Jen, Carlos Fernandez, Brittany Mayer (and met her boyfriend Sean), and Dan Rigazzi. We also saw where Ken's grandparents were buried at a beautiful cemetery. I loved it all!

I could write a ton, but the pictures can say it better than me. So here goes...

How many people did you have to ask to take your picture? Were you able to attend the temple?

Oh Carli, it looks like so much fun! sorry to hear about the Broadway shows being cancelled. What a bummer! Carlos looks a bit different, but Celia looks about the same from what I remember. I'm so glad you were able to take a trip alone! I need one of those. =) Loved the pictures. Thanks for sharing!
