So, I really have had the best summer. Not only did my parents move to our town (yikes, another post I need to get to!), but we have been blessed to take some wonderful trips and to spend some sweet time with family. I'm pretty sure I have mentioned this before, but I really do have the best in-laws. They are the kind of family that would do ANYTHING for you (literally anything...I've heard Stan say about someone before: "you know, they're the kind of person who would lay down in the road for you"...well, that's them), and they are just so full of love and fun. Besides my own mom, Stan's mom and sister are two of my best friends, so you can imagine how thrilled I was when they invited little ole me to go to New York with them!!
We had all been before, so with the touristy tasks behind us, we were just in for a grand time soaking up the city! It was so. much. fun. And, a refreshing break for me :).
We saw Chicago on Broadway!
Before the show :).
Buvette in West Village...the best crepe EVER.
Dylan's Candy Shop!!!
A few other things we did: Ate at So Sa Borella (yummmo Italian food), Stardust diner (people trying to make it on Broadway work there and stop to sing while waiting tables), and Eataly. We planned to bike through Central Park but wound up letting a guy bike us through :), and we visited a couple of friends who live up there. So fun!
Stan's mom found this website called A Cup Of Jo that gave us several ideas of where the "locals" love to visit and eat. Really made the trip!
Ahh, we had such a great time!!
