New York City

Nov. 11th - Nov. 15th

Brent and I snuck away to New York City for a few days last week.  It was sort of a babymoon (28wks), happy birthday to me, happy birthday to Brent, and Merry Christmas trip :-)  We had such a great time exploring and eating our way through the city.  Neither Brent nor I had ever been to New York before, so we tried to hit all the high/touristy points.  I would definitely say we succeeded and I'm pretty sure we were asleep by 1130 every night. 
**The Friday night we were there was when the terrorist attacks in Paris took place.  I'm already a bit of a nervous traveler so you can just imagine....New York City was not exactly the place I would have chosen to be during all that, but we powered through.

Now for the pictures!

The Empire State Building was lit up for Veteran's Day

St Patrick's Cathedral...

Dinner at Scalinatella (One of our favorite dinners, authentic Italian)

World Trade Center Memorial/Museum


Staten Island Ferry/Statue of Liberty

Looking back to Manhattan from Brooklyn.... This was before dinner at the River Cafe (another favorite, super fancy)

The Today Show (with the Rockettes and Al Roker was finishing Rokerthon)

Metropolitan Museum of Art 

Central Park

Top of The Rock at Sunset...

Ice Skating at Rockefeller Center  (between my big ole belly and Brent's knee we opted out and just enjoyed people watching with Peppermint Mochas :)

no pictures, but the other things we did were Times Square, went to see Jersey Boys, The Rockettes Christmas Spectacular, a little shopping and more eating.  My other two favorite places to eat while we were there.... JG Melon (the original, forgot what street) for their famous hamburger and Sarabeth's for brunch. 

So thankful for this getaway and uninterrupted time with Brent....I have a feeling between the holidays and going from 2 to 3 kids things are about to get a little crazy :-)  Bring it on!!
