Girl's Trip

My mom, sisters and sister-in-law all got together last week for a girl's trip. We had so much fun!! We spent the weekend in New York seeing many sights and we also took in Wicked. It lives up to the hype. It was so great and definitely the highlight of our visit to the big apple.

We enjoyed a few hot dogs, after all, it is the food of New York. Annie found this freaky mask inside the visitor's center at the base of the Statue of Liberty. Quite a few tourists visiting that day took pictures of her too. She looked pretty scary if you ask me.


We had so much fun taking in the city, but mostly just being together. My brother Nate watched my kids on Friday and he and Dan watched the kids for the rest of the weekend together. I was hoping it would be an easy day for him, but it started out with him getting lost taking Grace to school and culminated with all three kids jumping in the bathtub when all he had intended to do was bathe his little girl. He didn't complain though and it was so nice to get away kid free. Thanks Nate! What a great weekend!

I heart NYC, too! Isn't fun to live so close to it? We're going in on Saturday, and we're looking forward to enjoying a Christmas so close to it.
