We're Back!


Central Park

I love New York City! Matt and I spent last weekend in New York and had a great time...of course. We decided a few weeks ago to plan this trip and wanted to get it in before he starts rotations in January. We left Friday after school and returned on Tuesday night...

We had so much fun going to shows on Broadway... I think my favorites were Phantom of the Opera and Sweet Charity. We also had tickets to Monday night's David Letterman show... That was hard to beat... He was hilarious and I loved getting to see Brad Paisley sing.

We spent a lot of time walking through the city...Central Park was beautiful! We also had a chance to see Ground Zero, which was very moving and surreal.

We did so much in 4 days...but we still didn't fit everything in. I guess that means we'll have to make another trip! I posted some other pictures below. I couldn't figure out how to post several pictures on one post. Oh well!

Thanks for posting these pictures. Diane, Chris, and I can't wait to go to NYC Wednesday. You didn't mention the Soup Nazi. Best soup in the world!

It was fun watching that 7th grade basketball game yesterday -- with both your sister (referee) and Matt's brother (point guard) on the court. :)

Yeah! I'm so glad to see your NY pictures! So cute! After talking to you Wednesday night I went out and bought some Merrells for walking around the city. Looks like our NY trip will fall right between yours and the Copes. It was good to finally get a chance to talk to you! Have a good Thanksgiving!

I'm glad you all had a good trip to NYC. Kari & I got to go a couple years ago when she was in the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade - it was neat to see NYC at that time. We also got to see the Rockettes! I look forward to seeing you all at Christmas!
