DC / New York in February.....Why not?!?!


Here are some pics from our last trip to DC and New york. We went to DC for our annual Chick-fil-a seminar and since we were right there we jumped a flight to New York and met Cass and Danielle for a fun couple of wintery New York days. I loved DC and my favorite 2 things were the Lincoln memorial and the Star Spangled banner exhibit. Both had quite a reverent feel to them and I had to reflect on my love of our country and the blessings we have because of the forefathers and the patriots that gave so much that we can have our freedoms today. I wish we had more time in DC to sight see and I hope to get to go back some day to see more.



New York was next and we arrived to a blizzard and cold! It was cool to see the sights. We saw Ground Zero, FAO Schwartz toy store, the Statue of Liberty, Time Square, The subway (Where we treated to a pole dance by Cass and Danielle!), the Smithsonian, Central Park and many other places. We saw 2 shows, Billy Elliot and Mary Poppins. I liked Mary Poppins believe it or not! The trip was a success and although I could live without another trip to New York, Becky Loved it there and wants to go back for sure. Maybe next time I can sneak in a football game to make it funner for me!! enjoy the picks.

The DC part did look spectacular. I wish I could have joined you there- but was happy just to partake of some of the trip. Thanks for letting me tag a long. And dont worry, I can always go with your wife to NYC. You can stay home and go to a BYU game. :)

Don't give up on New York without giving it at least one more try...specifically not when it's so blizzard-ish! It really is such a magical place.

DC is incredible. I've only been that one time in Jr. High, but I have fond memories. Let's plan to go again!

Next time will have to be a girls trip- so funny becuase I am good not going to DC again. I guess there is only so much museum your wife with ants in her pants can handle.
