Summer in the City

Marshall whisked me off to to New York City for our anniversary.
Go ahead…be jealous.  It was fabulous!

We didn’t get out of Atlanta until later in the evening and we landed in NYC around 10pm.
But we were only going to be there for 2 days, and we were in the city that never sleeps…
So as soon as we dropped our luggage at the hotel, we headed back out.
Nothing like a midnight comedy show at UCB!

And nearly getting run over by a parade of cop cars.

My photography goal(I know I sound like a total geek) was to take as many pictures as possible at kid-level
So that I could show the kidlets what it would have looked like if they had been with us.

(Yes, that is actually a picture.)

We ate at Empanada Mama, where we waited forever(but it was totally worth the wait)!
And seriously?  The caramel and cheese empanada is oddly amazing.

We saw my favorite show!

And wandered aimlessly for hours just talking.

It was a whirlwind trip, but it was wonderful.

Want to see more pictures?  Go here.

    Only you could make pigeons (known as rats with wings to us New Yorkers) look that incredible! Gorgeous photos!
    So happy you had a wonderful trip!

    Such a fabulous anniversary present! And I love that you took pictures at “kid level”. And they still rock!

    Glad you had a great trip!

    Is that the Chrysler Building? Once when I was four and a half, my family stayed in Manhattan, and about the only thing I remember about the trip was we could see the Chrysler Building from our hotel room window.
