As you may have noticed, my blog went on a bit of a hiatus throughout the month of January. Well, I think we're back up and running...An event I was always meaning to blog about in January was our trip to New York City for New Year's Eve. Our good friends Jared & Megan headed there to celebrate the New Year and they invited us to join them! Well technically, Jared invited us (Megan had no clue where she was going...or that we were coming). By the time we met them in NYC, they had navigated the city for a few days, so they served as great tour guides for us. Here are the highlights of the trip...
We went out for a delicious dinner and topped it off with a celebratory shot before heading out to join the masses to watch the ball drop.
We made it to 50th street (ball drops around 42nd, but 46th has the best view). I chose this pic because the guy holding this umbrella was quite the dancer. He almost poked our eyes out on several occasions.
You can't NOT get a pair of these glasses.
With 15 minutes left until midnight, we ditched our 50th street spot and headed towards 46th. The police were blocking crowds from going in, but we had a hotel on 46th street, so they had to let us through. We got there just in time to celebrate with all the crazies!
The cops were so relieved everything went off without a hitch that they started taking pics with all the cute girls :)
The next day was a day of visiting the typical NYC sites including Central Park, FAO Schwartz, and Rockefeller Center. But, no trip to the big city is complete without a broadway show. After standing in line for an hour, Megan and I scored tickets to "The Understudy" starring, none other than, MARK PAUL GOSSELAAR!!!
He's so cute.
While Zack was great, his co-star, Justin Kirk (Jack & Jill anyone?) was the true standout on stage and off.
Such a great trip...What places do you think we should visit next time?
