Taking A Bite Out Of The Big Apple

Hello all! We are back, tired, with aching feet, but happy, our heads filled with great memories. I still have to retrieve most of our pictures from Bill's laptop (He downloaded from the camera).
OH! *waving at Jen and Emily* We met Jen and Emily! How cool was that? We had a wonderful day with them. We loved them both...and Jen, Bill did too! He really is just quiet and seems to enjoy watching his *girls* do their own thing. That's just him...he loved meeting you two and we were so thrilled to see Emily and Grace have so much fun together! Grace keeps talking about Emily and asking when she can see her again! Gosh we walked a lot didn't we? And then we did it again the next two days too. I KNOW I am too, ahem, ample, and yes, I blew out my knee a few years ago....BUT! When your 9 year old tells you that HER legs are tired and SHE needs to rest, you know you t'ain't doin' as bad as you thought!
I love New York, the rhythm of the city, the people, the noise. I adore the theaters, the little restaurants, the shops, the taxis.
I will write a bigger report with lots of photos soon. Till then, know we had a great time, that I missed you all and will check in with your blogs this weekend!
Until I can post more pictures...here are a few things I was tickled with....
Our Hotel....The Belvedere The Empire State Building
Some guy named Brian Dennehy
The Magnolia Bakery in Greenwich Village.
Central Park
That guy named Brian Dennehy
Rockefeller Plaza
That guy named Brian and his buddy, Chris, in a little play....
St. Patrick's Cathedral

How on earth did your pictures of the cathedral turn out so good?

Oh, we had a lot of fun with you guys on Tuesday! We really did. And yes, my gosh did we do some walking. I swear it must've been 2 miles, at least!

Welcome back! It looks, and sounds, like you had a most wonderful trip. The photos are awesome and I'm enjoying them so much. I've only been to NYC in order to catch a flight to England with friends from NJ. Didn't have time to spend in the city. Would love to return someday. For now though, I can go through you. xoxo

Welcome home! We've all missed you! Love your pictures and think it's so cool that you and Jen got to meet and spend a day together in NYC.

So Grace's legs got tired of walking too!!! I remember years ago when my niece Janna (who blogs) was with us on a trip to Gatlinburg. We decided to hike up to Klingman's Dome (at least I think that was the name of it). I was "huffing and puffing" about half way up the mountain and said I needed to stop a minute. This sweet little 5 year old Janna says "Aunt Andi, I'll stop and wait with you." I'm sure her little legs were about to give out too!

Great pictures of Brian by the way!

Beautiful pics! I especially love the ones of Brian and Christopher Plummer (two of my fave actors!)

Dawn Bibbs said...

What awesome pictures. This is enough to make me go back for a visit. But I just HATE that state!!! lol As beautiful as it is, there's just as much that's not. But I guess that's everywhere, huh?

But I am so very glad that you guys had a fun visit. It looks like ya'll had a ball!!! Glad you got there and back home safely.

By the way, I guess you didn't see my dad while you were there, huh? :-)
