So here we are...the first official full day of Spring. Yippee! It can only get warmer and sunnier from here, right? Well, we can hope. Snow and sleet are predicted for Wednesday...
I haven't done a Monday Musings post for some time now, and I think I'm a bit rusty. So much has happened that I haven't chronicled that I'm not sure I could cover it all without writing an entire volume of our family history.
So I'll just start with this past Saturday...and fill in later with posts about the "history" and memorable events of the past year.
A dear friend of ours from England brought her daughters to New York City for a shopping weekend. You know, one of those expedia.com deals you can buy? It was her youngest daughter's 13th birthday, and she thought it would be a wonderful treat for her.
The best treat was for us to join them for the afternoon on Saturday...to visit, to shop, to look around, and just enjoy each other.
It was fabulous!!
(Sarah and Stuart and I met after I moved to England in 1988. It'd been about 10 years since we'd seen each other.)
Since it was Ethan's first trip to NYC, it was also a special family time for us.
We took the PATH train from Hoboken and then the subway up to 58th to go to the best-est toystore in the world: FAO Schwarz. From there, we took the subway back to 34th to meet Sarah and her daughters at Macy's. After a fun time of eating, drinking (soda), and visiting, we hit the streets to go to Times Square and then the Rockefeller Center. It was a long day for all concerned, but a fun day.
Such a treat...such a memory!
I'll let the pictures tell the rest of the story:
