New York City!! (Part 2)

On Sunday we headed over to the Empire State Building and then went to see a play on Broadway!
King Kong!
View from the top of the Empire State Building.
We went to see Wicked! It was sooo good. I loved it!!
Monday was our last day and we did a lot of site seeing! Joe was excited to walk around Wall Street.
The Wall Street Bull.
We took a ferry to Staten Island to see the Statue of Liberty. 
It was a bit windy!
Pretty view of Manhattan from the ferry.
Later we walked across the Brooklyn Bridge.

We had dinner at a delicious little Mexican restaurant and then went to Rice to Riches for dessert.
We packed a ton of excitement and activities into a few days in New York! I think it probably made Joe want to live there more... and me a little less haha.  The next day was all traveling home to see our little boy! I always have such a hard time leaving Hayes. Thanks mom and dad for watching him! Until next time NYC!

New York City!! (Part 1)

Joe and I took a trip to NYC last week.  I had never been before and it was fun to explore such a big, exciting city! I maybe overdid it on the pictures so I'm going to split the trip into 2 posts.

Our first night, we went out to dinner and walked through Times Square.
Saturday, we planned to go to a Mets baseball game in the afternoon.  So, we explored Central Park and some nearby surroundings in the morning and then headed over to the game.
I don't remember what this church was called but it was huge inside! (The signs said I couldn't take any pics)
And it creeped me out a little...
We took the subway a lot and walked even more. Can you tell we were totally tourists, taking pics in the subway? haha
Mets game!
Saturday night we went to Lombardi's Pizza in Little Italy.  It was AMAZING.  I think it ruined all other pizza for us forever.
Just a little shopping after dinner!
To be continued...

Hayes's 2nd Birthday Party!

Figuring out a theme for Hayes's birthday party this year was a no brainer.  He is obsessed with anything on wheels- especially cars. So, I started planning his vintage car party!  We kept it a little smaller this year with just family. Here is a peak into the celebration of our little Hayes.

Thanks to my mom for the cute cake!

The birthday boy!

Buzz Lightyear!
Drivin' in his birthday present from mom and dad!

Blowing out the candles!                                                            Shad and Lant racing cars.

Hayes always wants to sit in my parents' car.
Coolest kid on the block!!
Happy Birthday Hayes! You are so loved!
