A few weeks ago Zachary and I went to New York to visit his Brother and family and see the sights. We had such a great time, New York is so beautiful! I miss all the green. Kirk and Rachel were such wonderful hosts and we miss them so much already...hopefully we'll be able to make it back there again sometime soon!

Here I am showcasing my "baby bump." This picture was taken at 20 weeks, but I feel like it more true to what I really look like currently at 22 weeks. I am growing, growing, growing!
We spent one day at Long Beach, and had so much fun. It was gorgeous weather and a beautiful beach! Neither of us dared get in the water, we got to stop watching Shark Week....We had fun walking the beach and looking at all the jelly fish and sea shells that had washed up.
Grand Central Station is amazing! That place is huge and gorgeous! How people find their way around that place, I have no idea...

On Saturday afternoon we went to a Yankees game at Yankee Stadium. Going to that stadium is an experience in itself, it is quite the place. Luckily we had seats in the shade and we loved having a few hot dogs while we watched the game!

One day we went into the City with everyone. We had fun checking out Central Park, Times Square, eating lunch at Bubba Gumps, and topping it all off with a piece of cheesecake from Carnegie Deli, divine!

And of course on the hottest, most humid day there we were at the US Open all day, outside! We didn't let the heat get us down though! The highlight of the day was watching Roger Federer play. We also loved watching Mardy Fish, and the # 1 Women's singles player, can't remember her name though.

Doug J'net were getting creative trying to keep the sun off of their heads! We were so glad we were able to make the trip with them and share all these fun experiences!

Please excuse my lovely appearance, by the end of the day I was a sweaty mess! It was such a fun experience, and one we can check off our list.

My favorite thing we did...Mary Poppins on Broadway. I LOVED it! Everything about it was fun and amazing, especially the set changes. Zachary even loved it!

Z was loving this cop on a horse, he just had to get a picture!
(funny story, as I was posting this I turned to Zachary and asked, "What do they they call cops on horses?" His response, "cops on horses." Isn't there a real name for them?)

We rode the Subway over to the Statue of Liberty, saw Ground Zero, made a few purchases on Canal Street ( you know I love that place!) and saw the Empire State Building. I was totally worn out at the end of that day!
We loved our time in New York and now it's back to life! I even have started working again, teaching 5th and 6th graders and I love it! It is definitely a new adventure everyday, but that's what makes it so fun!
