Thanks for coming for a visit Dad!

Saturday, March 20, 2010

Life is still busy (always). Dad came for a little visit last weekend. We saw a couple of shows, ate out a lot, saw Avatar, and tried to keep dry. Poor Dad...he came on one of the rainiest weekends we have had in a long time. We still had fun! We were able to do almost everything he wanted to do. The Empire State Building was on the list, but since the weather was so lousy we decided not to go. Maybe next time Dad!

I'm taking it easy this weekend. After two weekends in a row of guest I found there was a lot for me to catch up on. Especially considering I'm going to Disneyland next week! Yes, that's right...I'm taking the six hour flight to the happiest place on earth! I'm going with Kari and two of my cousins. I'm super excited.

After that it's time to get down to business. There's a lot going on right now and I really need to concentrate on an assortment of kind of important things. I'll try to keep you updated.

An Alice in Wonderland Day...

Monday, March 8, 2010

Sarah and I decided to have an Alice in Wonderland themed day. We woke up and caught the 10am showing of the new Alice in Wonderland movie at the imax. I really liked it. Yeah, it was dark and weird, but I found it very entertaining.

We then headed over to one of my favorite places for lunch - Alice's Tea Cup. We had tea, scones, and sandwiches. It was delightful. :)

We then looked at a few hat shops that were in the neighborhood. We tried a few on, but didn't find anything we wanted to buy.

Next, we took a lovely stroll in the park. Of course we made sure to pass the Alice in Wonderland statue.

While walking down Lexington we noticed that Bloomingdale's had an Alice in Wonderland window display. How perfect!

After doing some light shopping, we ate dinner at the Oyster Bar in Grand Central Station. Yes, we even ate oysters. Well, we each ate one. Sarah ended up getting the crab and I got shrimp.

  Oh!...the number one plan for the day was to always be running late. :) It was a good day in the city.
