Friday we decided to take the Open Top Bus Tour and it started POURING rain. We did get to see some of the city before we were flooded out..we hit the world's largest Macy store. It was truly incredible and completely overwhelming! Next we hit up H&M and got some cute new clothes for our new, little man. We also made it up to the Empire State Building although we couldn't see very much because the storm was rolling on in...
After the storm we went to see Ground Zero. What an overwhelming experience.
While we were there Brady took this cute picture of us. I love it!
Thank you Katie for recommending The Shake Shack. It was the best burger I have ever had and well worth the wait! Really! (thanks Helene for the picture, I stole it from your facebook).
Friday night we met up with our friends from Germany, Sven and Helene (they were in Oxford with us). We all spent a ridiculous amount of money at the M&M store buying custom colors. Brady wanted to bring home Millie her favorites; pink, yellow, purple. He was so excited to tell her about it and when he did she said, "Dad, I like ALL the colors now". LOL, he spent $9 on basically nothing. By Saturday I was sooooooo tired! Coming out of my 1st trimester and not being use to walking all over the place anymore, I wasn't sure if I was going to last. Brady let me sleep in a little and it helped a ton. After my much needed rest we decided to try our luck at the lottery for the broadway hit "In The Heights". I was so sad our name didn't get called. We really wanted to go.
Next we cruised on down to the Stanton Island Ferry. It drove us right past the Statue Of Liberty. What a beautiful sight. When the boat landed we decided to walk through Wall Street. It was so fun! There was a little carnival going on and got to eat lots and lots of YUMMY food. Is there anything better then roasted corn on the cob? I don't think so!
We REALLY, REALLY wanted to see "In The Heights", so we went back to Time Square to try our luck at the lottery 1 more time and guess what...they called Brady's name and we scored front row tickets for $26.00 bucks. AWESOME!
What better way to celebrate then by posing with the Naked Cowboy.
Brady was most excited for Sunday. Sven, Helene, Brady, and I met up with one of our other Oxford friends Tom. He took the train from Connecticut to come to the Yankees game with us. To bad it got rained out! Oh well, we hit a classic diner in the Bronx and ate doughnuts. Even better.
Brady, Tom, Sven
After stuffing our faces we met up with some more of our great friends from Oxford, The McGill's. Brady was in Merton with Tony and Jodi was one of my greatest friends. It was so good to see them! I couldn't believe how big their little man Wryder had gotten. He is so darling. My only regret about that day was that this was the only picture I got. What was I thinking!
Jodi and Wryder (I miss you guys!)

Next time we go on a trip I think I'll take my good camera. I missed my rebel.
