NOTHING else has been going on in our lives- I promise you. Adam took a test, we got sick, there was conference, then the making up for being sick, Adam took his fourth round of tests this past Friday and right after the last one we left for...
Neither of us have ever been, and one of Adams mission companions and his wife now live in the Bronx and they gave us an open ended invitation to come whenever we wanted. And since this was right after a test, and since Adam had some other buddies from Ohio that were going to be there the same weekend we decided this was the prime time to go!
We were packed up by 2, and Logan and I got gas and played around while Adam took his test. We were on the freeway by 3!
Then Lance and his wife put us back on the metro headed for Times Square while they went home to nap. :) We walked around Times Square for a minute, and then walked downtown to the Empire State Building. (The picture of Logan was with Adam's buddy Tony who comes from a HUGE Italian family. Logan LOVED Tony.)
Ledjah made us an amazing dinner- Albanian salad, homemade cheese and broccoli soup, homemade veggie pizza. I put Logan to bed then we sat up until 3 am eating and talking. I haven't stayed up so long in YEARS.
Sunday morning Adam and I woke up STILL tired and VERY sore. Ledjah made us Crepes for breakfast, then we packed up the car and were on our way back home by 11am. We are still tired despite over ten hours of sleep, and working out this morning proved a little difficult but it was SO worth it! Such an amazing trip.
I don't think I can pick a favorite thing- I kind of got the impression that once you see one big city you see them all. I was sad I didn't get the same sense of shock that I got when I first went to London- but then I had seen a big city before. But while London is old and cultural- New York is so TALL and exciting and modern- I really loved experiencing it all. And I am also glad we are home :)
