Well all I can say is we had such a fun trip! New York is such a fun place to visit. It is seriously the city that never sleeps. The only thing about the whole trip that was hard was the red eye flight. We got into JFK at 5:01 a.m.--early right? We weren't tired that day but the next day it took a huge toll on us. Also, that same morning we flew we went straight to Regis and Kelly! Exciting...no! They took stand by numbers 1-60 and low and behold me and Jared were 61 and 62! :( I seriously was trying to hold back the tears! Oh well!
So we packed a lot into our days and nights! We went to Wicked the first night and it was so so good. We both loved it. Then we did a bunch of other stuff David Letterman, Ground Zero, Time Square, Chinatown, The Today Show concert series with Natasha Beddingfield(who was so awesome live), and just some downtown shopping!!! But I would have to say the highlight of the trip was the Yankees game! We loved it! It was such a good game! We saw two home runs by the Yankees--A Rod and Cano! And the Yankees won 7 to 1 against the Oakland A's. The new Yankee stadium looks pretty sweet!
We owe the biggest thank you to Gary and Melanie! Our friends that we met at BYU our first semester at Wyview. Gary is doing an internship in the City for a law firm. They lived right in the city and it was so fun to have that experience. It was fun to go home to an apartment in the city and get buzzed in...we felt like true New Yorkians! They were the best hosts! They live in the city so they new a ton of great places to eat and visit. They were so much fun. It was so good to be with Mel too. She is such a fun friend and it is just so easy with her. She is such a good mom and I always learn my best parenting skills from her. And Gary is so fun. He always keeps us laughing. :)
Okay so the last night we were there we went to watch Heart N Soul compete. It was so awesome we took 12 or 13 dances and only one dance didn't place, and then we got two 2nd places, and the rest were 1st! :) They also give out 3 over $1,000 awards and HNS got 2 of them! It was so fun to watch the girls hard work pay off. They were so excited...but it was even better to watch Diane. She was on cloud 9! Congrats girls!!
So all in all it was such a fun trip. Me and Jared totally felt like we mastered the subway system. Whenever we got off and we were at our correct destination it felt so good lol! So I would have to say the best part of the whole trip was probably being with just Jared. NO kids to distract us. We had never left our kids so it was weird not having to worry about naps, and sippy cups, and Cinderella. :) It felt like old times! We need to say thanks to everyone who helped with the kids. You are all awesome. Especially to Lacey!! Your the best! We can't wait to go again! LOL
