NYC with Family and Friends

Before Thanksgiving in Westchester, we spent several nights in Manhattan near Central Park South. Upon our arrival, we went straight to Ellie and Sandor’s place, who were kind enough to host dinner for all the cousins and families. The big kids (Sandor and I) showed the little kids how it’s done in the play room.

Some of our NYC activities are now starting to feel routine:

  • Visit POPSUGAR NY office
  • Ride subway
  • Eat in Koreatown
  • Visit American Girl
  • MoMath
  • Eat in Koreatown

Grace and her family had dinner one night with Dave’s boss, so I got a pass and had dinner with Linda. After Thanksgiving, we came back into Manhattan for a couple nights. We went straight to Jen’s where she and my mom had been preparing for a big Ohio State vs. Michigan game party. The food was plentiful and delicious. The football was terrible. All the cousins came over as well as Jon Arney and Linda, Danny and the Kids. Olivia can’t get enough of her little baby cousins.

Afterwards, we drove out to NJ to visit Ana and Bobby at their beautiful new home out in Ridgewood. It was great to see the kids and the family in their new suburban lifestyle. The kids enjoyed playing together in their new spaces.

Lucas wasn’t feeling well on Sunday, our last day in the city, so he and I stayed home while Dave, Grace and Olivia went to meet Joon and Bianca. Lucas bounced back and was able to rally for one last meal with Dave at Mastro’s. It was excellent.

We didn’t get to see everyone we wanted to on this trip, but I’m sure we’ll be back soon and often. Of course now there’s pressure to join all our siblings in NY, but I really don’t see that happening. We’re always up for a visit, though.
