A Birthday is NOT complete without.....

This year Jarred thought we forgot his favorite birthday tradition!!  I mean, how could we?!?  March 31st is such a special day these two get to share!  Oh, how they are both LOVED!



Who needs a plate!  A fork will do!

Ava's Birthday Lunch

Of course she picked her favorite....Pappasitos!
She was a shy when they came to sing to her!  Oh how I love this sweet girl!
Happy 6th Birthday!  I hope you always know how much you are cherished!  I want you to know how beautiful you are becoming.  I tried to etch this day into my mind, I always want to remember your shyness and the pure joy of us singing to you!  You are LOVED, wildly!

New York Girls Trip

What a fun few days this was!  Up all day touring the city and the up all night with girl talk!  This trip was good for my soul.  Laney was the perfect room mate as we talked all night and slept in everyday!!  One night we were still shopping at midnight!  (Only in NY)

We fit in many plays.....I would have to say that Aladdin was not my first choice but I was so glad we got tickets because I was BLOWN away!  What an amazing show.  I sure hope it comes here so I can take the girls.  We also scored tickets to OPENING night of Finding Neverland, the story of how Peter Pan came to be.  This was also so wonderful!!  I would say the plays were my favorite part....

You can't go to New York without getting the frozen hot chocolate from Serendipity.....

And the 9-11 memorial was beautiful.....words can't do justice.
The missing posters took up walls of space.  The different shades of blue represented the beautiful blue sky on that September day.  The firetruck was down at ground zero when the first tower fell. The staircase is how many people escaped that day.
A few facts on the World Trade Center....

These were pictures from a photographer.  His pictures were amazing, I can only imagine the emotion he felt behind the camera on those terrible days.
The city did an amazing job honoring those that lost their lives.
And here is the new freedom tower....

What a blast we had, I look forward to many more trips!  But, I was sure happy to see my peeps!
(Susie kept the girls for us and one night Ava told her she wishes there was no "new gork" beacuse she missed me.  She explained that one day she would be glad because she would be able to go with me!  I can't wait to take her one day for our own girl trip!)
