A Weekend Trip

We traveled down to NYC this past weekend to take in some sights and visit family. It was a fun and fattening trip.


We started our trip with Lunch at Gray's Papaya. It was my first time there and the hot dogs were delish!!! I love the movie "You've Got Mail" and the two main characters eat there in the movie and I just had to try it. Hubby, kids and I all loved the hot dogs.



Then it was off to The Museum of Natural History. We have gone there every spring for the past 3 years. Usually we focus on the dinosuars. MissyMiss has recently discovered "Night at the Museum" and LOVES it. I went on to the museum's website and they had a page listing where you could find the things from the movie. This was a hit with the kids. Their favorite was the Easter Island head....DumDum want GumGum!!
Bubby's favorite part was the Hall of Marine Life. He kept saying "That not real....that not real...". I think he was trying to reassure himself that the huge whale hanging from the ceiling was "not real".










We headed to Central Park and FAO Schwartz. It was the kids first time there and it was fun...just a bit overwhelming for them. MissyMiss took her picture with the soldier outside, but Bubby was too scared.







The kids also had their first taxi ride. I think it was MissyMiss's favorite part of the trip.


We brought back dessert from Crumbs bakery. I am a true cupcake lover and was not disappointed....they were A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. They were ginormous. I could only eat a half.










It was a wonderful little trip and we can't wait to go back next year! I have been spending this week trying to work off all of the extra calories!



(In the interest of full disclosure I must also admit that while in NYC I had roasted peanuts from the guy on the corner and a delicious slice of pizza. There are just some things that I must eat while I am there. You just can't get it quite the same anywhere else. The only thing missing was a good NYC bagel with schmear...how I miss living on Long Island. :( )

In running news, my back injury is coming along. I am continuing with my back stretches and exercises. I have gotten back to walking and back on the bike, but feel like I should wait a few more days for running. I am really missing it and can't wait to get back to it.

Wow! That looks like a fun getaway! I have never been to NYC and would love to go someday. Those cupcakes looked super yummy! My boys, especially my 6 year old, would LOVE the museum! I didn't know the movie was based on a real one! Great pictures... thanks for sharing!

Good looking kids!

While I love NYC, I haven't been brave enough to take the kids (or even to Philly) - I'm hoping this summer to take them somewhere.

Sarah, You are so right, there are just some things you HAVE TO HAVE when in certain parts of the country and the diet gets shot to hell but oh the taste buds are thanking you. Have a great weekend and I know...I just know you are going to melt those pounds right off as soon as you are able. Hope you are feeling better real soon. You are still awesome.

Yup, trips equal extra calories, but what the heck-sometimes you do what ya gotta do! Sounds like a wonderful trip, it's always fun to watch kids experience new things!
