Wonderful Weekend

As everyone knows, Bill and Gayle came up to visit us this weekend! We had such a great time! The schedule was packed and we exhausted ourselves but loved every minute of it. Friday afternoon Bill and Gayle were waiting on the stoop when I got home. We ate lunch at our favorite pizza place then I took them on a tour of Columbia and then we went down to Macy’s and the Empire State Building. Bill met us at the Empire State Building when he got off work. (By the way, he is absolutely loving his job!)

On Saturday our schedule was packed including: The TODAY show, NBC studios tour, Serendipity and 5th Avenue shops. Saturday night we saw the musical Mamma Mia. It was so good – funny with lots of great singing and dancing. It was very entertaining. Our seats were actually on the last two rows but they were great seats – were able to see everything going on. If this show comes your way it is a good choice to see!

Sunday was our “relaxed” day but it was still pretty exhausting! We started the day by going on a boat ride past Ellis Island and the Statute of Liberty. It was fun to be out on the water and get such a close view of the Statue. She is so big! You don’t realize it until you see her that close. Afterwards we went to Greenwich Village and ate lunch at Peanut Butter and Company. Big Bill had a peanut butter and strawberry, Gayle had p.b and bread and butter pickles, Bill had Fluffernutter and I had cinnamon raisin p.b. with vanilla creme cheese and apple slices! Then we walked through SoHo and went to the Scholastic store. Sunday afternoon we went on a horse drawn carriage ride through Central Park. That was fun and relaxing! Sunday night we went out for Bill’s birthday dinner at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse. It was so delicious – the best steak I have ever eaten! I want to go there for my birthday too!

We had such a good time and can’t wait for more people to come and visit!

    Hint, hint about your birthday. I guess it will have to be a birthday/graduation dinner!

    Not only was our weekend with Bill and Amber wonderful, it was fabulous and unforgetable. Bill and Amber had planned an itinerary filled with lots of sites to see and things to do. We were going from morning til night. Lots of memories were made as we went to the top of the Empire State Building, the tour of NBC Studio(Julie, wait till you see my picture with Matt Lauer), our boat cruise out to see the Statue of Liberty, the Forbidden Broadway Sundae and Frozen Hot Chocolate at Serendipity3, “Mama Mia” was sooooo good, and I have to agree with Amber about our meal at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse. It was the best filet mignon I have ever had too. Amber taught me alot about wheeling and dealing in Chinatown (Billy, you must have taught her well). Bill and I were so impressed with how well Bill and Amber know their way around after being there just 2 months. We are so proud of you both and loved being with you. For those of you planning to visit in the near future, I have some advice: START WALKING NOW!!! I think if you walk about 5 miles a day you should be ready. And find the most comfortable walking shoes that they make, no matter what the cost. It will be worth it. Seriously, thank you Bill and Amber for your hospitality, your patience with us slow folks, and for showing us such a good time. We love you so much!!
