Let's Hear it for NEW YORK

On Mother's Day, Jake surprised me by telling me that we were going to NYC for our anniversary, just the two of us. Friday we were to fly out at 7:30 & arrive in NYC by 9:30. We ended up delayed 2 hours, then boarded & took off. We had been in the air 20+ minutes & the pilot said we were turning around & landing in Wilmington due to "a/c issues." The flight was cancelled. They couldn't get us to NYC until after 3pm on Saturday afternoon. So we basically lost a whole day of our 3 day vacation. . . huge bummer.

Finally in NYC (4pm on Saturday), waiting for the subway.

It was HOT.

We went to TKTS on Broadway as soon as we hit NYC & got tickets to "Catch Me If You Can."

My bosses nephew is the lead role - Frank Abagnale JR. We got to meet Aaron after the show & get a backstage tour. Thanks Becky, for the hook-up.

Sunday morning we met some friends, James & Candace, in Brooklyn for donuts at Peter Pan Donuts. I totally forgot to take a picture.
Yankees vs A's game Sunday afternoon.

Jake had a foul ball in his hands but then dropped it.

We went to STOMP on Sunday night.

Found this yummy gelato place after the show. Then walked to Trader Joe's.

Monday morning we got up & headed to the Today Show. Unbeknownst to us, they were doing a segment on HOPE week with 3 Yankees players - Jeter, Sebathia & Cano. We snapped some photos. Jake waited outside the door for Cano to come by so he could "meet" him. I was ready with the camera. . . but i missed it when Jake gave him a fist bump.

Jake's reaction after the fist bump. (I do also have a picture of his reaction when I told him I missed it & did not get a photo. Oops!)

We had such a nice time in NYC. So fun to get away, just the two of us. We did miss our little Lily bug. . .A LOT! She had fun with her cousins while we were gone. Thank You Chrissy & family!
