New York City

Chad and I absolutely LOVE going to NYC, so we thought it was about time to take Park up to the Big Apple for his first time, and visit my little sister, Tia who is nannying up there for the summer. We drove straight to Yankee stadium to watch the Yankees take on the Padres. Yankee stadium is so old and so cool. Then we rode the subway into the city, and entered the Wicked raffle...(we are only a little bit obsessed), but Chad won!!! (this means we got to buy front row tickets for only $25) Tia met us in the city and Chad and I each saw half of the play with Tia, while the other person walked around the city with Parker. Parker LOVED New York, with all the horns, people, lights and music. He was in heaven. The rest of the trip consisted of train and subway rides, New York pizza, central park, cute little Maplewood New Jersey, shopping, oh, and I almost forgot.... Front row lottery seats at "Hairspray, " which we decided might even be a better "Front Row Musical" than Wicked. (yes, we had an extremely LUCKY, but fabulous weekend).

Our First Family Vacation

A few weeks ago (I know... the post is a bit over due), we went on our very first family vacation, just the 3 of us. We drove to Atlantic City and stayed for 5 nights. (For all you west coasters, Atlantic city is like Vegas on the beach, add a boardwalk, add us). We had a great time and didn't want to come home! Highlights include:
1. Parker... he was the PERFECT kid, and loved every single second of the vacation.
2. the sweet beach... loved it.
3. the mall on the pier with great stores, and great restaurants
4. watching the Laker/Celtics game at "game on"-- great sports restaurant
5. funnel cakes and ice cream on the boardwalk
6. Chad and Park finding huge seashells on the beach
7. our AWESOME hotel rooms
8. shopping the outlets
9. the merry go round on the pier
10. spending time all together and watching our little boy love it all!

We loved our vacation. It made us so excited to keep doing things like this with our kids in the future.
