The Edge and Hadestown

Halle back again for our last day in NYC. We started out the day with a 9:30 “brunch” at Balthazar, which was pretty good but I don’t think anyones favorite. We then split up where Grace and Sarah went to walk the high line, and mom and I went to Macys to look for a…

Brooklyn Bridge and Six

Saturday brought the rain back with it. We ate breakfast at Black Seed bagel. Halle and I shared the most delicious cinnamon raisin bagel with homemade almond butter and jam. I wish they sold that almond butter. It was more like super finely chopped almonds than a smooth butter. I could have eaten a whole…

Smorgasburg, Central Park, and Dear Evan Hansen

Cronut day! The magic of NYC really delivered this time. The Cronut flavor of the month was Passionfruit. Which we all know is Sarah’s favorite flavor ever. It was delicious, as always.  We wandered through Chinatown, walking inside a Buddhist temple and checking in on all the chintzy tourist shops.  We jumped on the subway…

NYC, FINALLY!

After 25 long pandemic months, we finally got to take our girls trip to NYC. And what a time we had! Our flight started off as a bit of a fiasco. It kept getting bumped further and further back. Southwest had cancelled like 1000 flights over the weekend, so I was not feeling very hopeful.…

March 2020 recap (Before the world turned upside down)

High School Band Concert!  Such a fun time! Harlem Globetrotters.  The kids had a fun time but Rusty said the show has gone downhill since he was a kid. It was too cold for our usual Stake Conference adventure outside, so living room picnic to the rescue!Super Tuesday!  Unfortunately, my man Pete dropped out a…

US Open

Rusty here: I was up about 8AM NYC time so I hit the deli for Egg Bacon and Cheese on a Roll. Mmmm NYC is the king of american cheese. It was great, but for some reason the rolls kind of scratched my mouth up. Josh and I got ready and we were off to…

Greenwich Village Food Tour

Our last day began as all other days of this trip, late. Josh and Rusty didn’t get home till 2am and the rest of us rolled in around 12:45 and didn’t go to bed till 1:30. No one moved a muscle until about 9:45am. We packed up our bags and checked out of the hotel. …

Cursed Child

Halle here: On Sunday we went and saw Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. It was a super cool show, and the multiple parts made the excitement last all day. The special effects were so cool, and it was just like being back at Hogwarts. We watched part 1, which ended with dementors falling from…
