nyc pictures

the entire reason for the trip. they are tearing down yankee stadium this fall.
our seats. the best part? the 4 old new yorkers in front of us arguing with boston fans. "listen kid, i was there at the mets game when Buckner lawst that bawl" yes.
yankee stadium. watch out, this is pretty close up. did i mention we accidentally took the express train home and missed our stop?
empire state building was totally worth $20 bucks a pop.
columbia's low library
our hotel- the morningside inn. it was clean and cheap.
our view from our hotel room was gorgeous.
cameron and katie were kind enough to show us around upper west side and treat us to grom? gelato. i highly recommend the pistachio
i finally took a class at broadway dance center. teacher was ok- old jewish guy in his 60's on the barre next to me=priceless.
LDS temple on broadway was amazing. my grandfather attended church here in the 1930's while getting his masters at NYU
our hotel's subway stop
times square was fun to see again. but no desire to go back. tourists, tourists, tourists.
the seinfeld restaurant was 3 blocks from our hotel. we couldn't resist eating some greasy, cheap food there.
speaking of seinfeld, what new york trip is complete without a black and white cookie?

I am way excited for you BUT... Hello, I live 3hrs from there. You flew all the way across the country and were 3 hrs away and didn't tell me??!! Little (okay a lotta) upset about that. Having said that, it sounds like you did some great things. A ballet class on broadway?! Awesome! Red Sox beating Yankees in Yankee stadium. Wohoo! Chocolate cookies. Yummy!Going on vacation without children. Yeahhhhh! I'm glad you had a fun time.

SO FUN! I'm so glad you guys got to do that! Someday we'll have to go together. And that's so cool that you went to a dance class! How was the cookie? What flavor is it on the inside?

I have to tell you my funny story. I was looking at you NYC pics and my oldest boy, William said "mom, who is that?" I told him it was a friend I went to school with and he said "oh, she looks like you. Well, she has spots like you." Don't you just love kids.
BTW, it looked like tons of fun!

Looks like it was so much fun! I love seeing NY but I'm so glad I don't live there (coming from the girl who lives in the second largest city in the country--except I don't actually live in LA so it feels smaller town still.) I'm so glad you were impulsive and went!
