New York City!

My dad had a hotel room in New York City available so we went to my parent's house last weekend. We had a wonderful time with Grandma and Grandpa and then they watched the kids for us Saturday night so we could go to a Yankees game and spend the night in the City. It was wonderful! (I know it seems like we keep getting lots of overnights away from our kids lately... we normally don't do it that often... although we do love it and think it's important for everyone to do as often as possible. It's so good for your marriage! :) Checking out the new toys and books.

Dinner time


Grandpa reading books... don't you love Natalie's pose?

Grandma frequents yard sales to collect toys for her grandkids. She found a puzzle that makes the sound of the instrument when you put the piece in... I think Grandpa was doing the drum here.

And we're off to the city! Thanks so much Mom and Dad!

Lunch at a little deli.

On the way to our hotel we passed the Chrysler Bldg.

Rockefeller Center

Radio City Music Hall

We walked around Central Park a little before the game.

It was neat to see the new stadium, it was very nice. The Yankees were playing the Red Sox... that's quite the rivalry and the fans were definitely excited! (As in, yelling and booing anyone and everything to do with the Red Sox!) Derek Jeter


It was fun to still be at the stadium when the lights came on... although it was really windy and chilly!

7th Inning Stretch- we all sang God Bless America and Take me out the Ball Game.

Love you hubs! :)

After the game, we went to ESPN Zone for dinner... because we wanted to check it out AND we wanted to watch the Penn State game! :) It's a neat place-- more flat screens than I've ever seen in one restaurant... you could literally watch anything you wanted. We had a great time, even then they lost the game.

Walking around Times Square

Our nice hotel room-thanks again Dad!

Back home the next day... watching some football.

And then back to PA... all three kids had colds this week so we laid pretty low... and watched quite a few TV shows!

Picnic lunch outside under a table.
Finger paintingEvan playing puzzles... look at those arms!

Happy Fall everyone!

I don't think you're feeding Evan enough...I can only count 5 or 6 rolls on those arms...shouldn't he have more???? ;-)
