We had an amazing time with Kris and Jen. We took the kids to a farm and picked blueberries, strawberries, and green beans. We hung out, just as old friends should. Then we loaded up in our cars for a road trip to New York City! What fun! I had never been there so I was super excited. We took the kids to the Toys R Us on Times Square and rode the ferris wheel-- in the store! That night we did a Harbor Lights cruise around the Hudson to see the Statue of Liberty. What amazing sight to see. Jaclyn loved "Libery" as she called her. One of Jaeden's favorite things was getting to ride in a taxi. As we were getting out he looked at Jeremy and me and asked " Is this all for me?" We asked what he was talking about and he said the giant toy stores, the boat ride and everything. Then he thanked us for the "best vacation ever"! I love my little man!
Thanks to Kris and Jen, Jeremy and I got to take a little time to enjoy Times Square at night together. It is whole new world at night. Amazing!!
Before we headed home we walked through Central Park and went to FAO Schwartz. What an experience. Jaclyn got to "design" her own Barbie at the Style my Barbie station, right down to the shoes she was wearing. Then you get to see your Barbie walk the catwalk. What an awesome thing for a 3 and 4 year old to see the Barbies they designed come down the catwalk!
We left the City with tons of great memories and greater appreciation for the laid back life we lead now!!
Here are some of the photos from the week. I will post more this week.
