In January J was supposed to make a trip to the US to do an audio book in the studio. At the last minute it was put on hold and since the hotel was non-refundable T and I jumped on the plane and spent a cold week in NYC. It ended up snowing there while we were flying so we landed in a white wonderland that lasted a couple days. Long enough for T to enjoy it and short enough for me to enjoy it. :)
The trip was a very good break from France and a good chance for T to see some friends he asks about ALL the time, get in a good snowball fight, and make a snowman (albeit a rather small one), and for me to do some comfort Target shopping, catch up with some of my favorite NJ/NYC girls, and get my Starbucks fix. :)
I used just my cell phone for all the pics. Here's what we did.....
|This was on the way to Target. On the way back from the store we saw people pass it and smile, |
not knowing T had made it.
|A little exercise at the Children's Museum of Manhattan.|
|Had our favorite hotel brunch at the Hyatt in Jersey City with it's awesome view of Manhattan.|
A bit of a cloudy day.
|Rebuilding the skyline around the World Trade Center area.|
|Met my friend at this super cute (French) coffee spot, La Maison du Macaron. Yummy macaroons!!|
|A pizza party for T and his friends from our old apartment building and his school.|
|The Portside Three Musketeers.|
|Got my NYC diner fix at Johnny Rockets. The staff does a little dance for you when the tune is right.|
|Our one beautiful sunny day. Good time to play in the sun and have a little siesta.|
|I really stocked up at Target! I was a little nervous about going through customs. :)|
|Only in Europe, this is in the Frankfurt airport, a smoking box!|
