Okay, so New York was absolutely the best! We had so much fun and remembered how it was when it was just the two of us! We of course, missed the kids alot, but it was nice to get away for a weekend. We saw and did everything we wanted to do and probably walked at least 10 miles!! The first night we were there we saw "Wicked" the play on Broadway, which was so fabulous and we both loved it.
It is such a popular show that we felt lucky we got tickets to see it. We got to eat the best pizza and hot dogs and drink the best hot chocolate in the WORLD at this place called the "Chocolate Bald Man".. it was like drinking pure chocolate.
We got to see Times Square, Rockefeller Center, St. Patricks Cathedral, which was absolutely amazing, Statue of Liberty, Ground Zero and the Financial District. It was wild to think that all of those tall buildings downtown are actually full of people who work there. No wonder the streets and subways are so crowded.
Ground Zero was so interesting to see. It was all fenced off and you really couldn't see much. We were able to take a picture through the tarp on the fence and that is all we saw. It was very quiet there, almost eerily so. I just couldn't believe I was looking at the end result of all that happened there. We were lucky enough to be able to meet up with a friend of Steve's family, Maurice, who lives there in the city with his wife and children. He told us a little bit about that day and what is was like for him. He was right down there, maybe 2 blocks away when it all happened. Amazing story!
We shopped on Canal Street/Chinatown and that was an event! I got a great purse for $20 so that was fun. We got lots of fun stuff for the kids there too. The place that we stayed was so wonderful and we were lucky to know someone who let us stay there for free. It was on the upper west side and was just beautiful. It sat right on the Hudson River. Walking to the subway over there, we saw David Hyde Pierce who was Niles on "Frasier" and I didn't know what to say so I acted totally cool and didn't say anything but I wanted to!
The last day we were there, we went to the Brooklyn Bridge, which was really pretty. We ate at a fun Cuban restaurant and took some great pictures. All in all, it was such a great trip and a dream come true for me as I have always wanted to go. It made me realize how blessed I am and how lucky I am to have such a great husband and family!! Great memories we will never forget!

It's October in Texas!
Yes, It's that time again! Every October we go to the Pumpkin Farm and also the State Fair of Texas. It is always so fun for the kids and they love the time with their cousins and Grammie and Pop Pop. Just the boys and I went to the Pumpkin Farm and Scotty loved feeding the animals and picked a big pumpkin.
It was great weather for October..we loved it! I used to take Abbey when I was pregnant with Scott..that is how many years we have been coming to this one Pumpkin Farm, so this was a full circle moment! It was fun to be spend some one on one with Scotty.
~FAIR DAY ~
Wow, what an undertaking. Steve had to work so we headed out on our own with cousins and Grammie and Pop Pop. We saw everything from a HUGE pig that couldn't stand up so the "smallest horse in the world." The kids rode a ton of rides and lost of fun activities.
They had cotton candy, funnel cakes, snow cones and whatever else they could eat. It was fun and such a fun tradition for them. We go every year. They were pooped, of course, at the end but Spencer did great, so it wasn't too bad. These are the memories I hope my kids will always remember and cherish!!
I Did It..Hooray!
