The big apple!

Well it's official I'm a New Yorkin (a.k.a New Yorker). It is true I lived there in another life. For some reason I just get that place. I am the absolute worst person at directions but for some reason in New York I always know where I am and where I need to be going. I LOVE IT THERE!!! This trip was set up by my AWESOME,WONDERFUL, GREAT husband who got Leah and I tickets to go for Christmas (he is the best!). He then watched the kids for 4 whole days and did so amazing! I sure missed my kiddos and was so ready to squeeze them when I got home but I could see that they had been well taken care of! It was the first time Leah and I had ever been anywere without our kids and really the first time we had gone on a real vacation together and it was so much fun to be with my big sis! We had such a great time and we plan on going back many times in the future!

On our way. Both of us were very excited and really didn't know what to do with our self with 5 whole hours of doing nothing...weird!
At dinner the first night. We had so much fun!
Canal Street.
Gucci bag, rolex, hidden rooms, gold ring, sunglasses, perfume, and lots of awesome shops is just some of what we got on this day of marathon shopping
I heart New York!
Yes that is breast milk in the diet coke bottle there are only so many places to put it when pumping in dressing rooms! I was a very dedicated pumper the whole trip and it made for some awkward moments but it was worth it in the end.

On the subway. We mastered the subways...I was very proud of us!
Time square! Lots of good people watching. (Why is everyone sitting in lawn chairs?)
First class on the way home and boy did we need it. We were so wiped by the end of the vacation that a little extra leg room went a LONG way!
Some things that we did not document with pictures that happen to be some of the greatest things we did. Wicked...Oh my goodness!!!! It was all I ever wanted and needed it to be! The singing was awesome and so funny too! Gusto restaurant...aMAZing! Dan's friend Ryan is the chef their. It's in Greenwich Village and in the coolest neighborhood. Its a swanky little Italian restaurant and sooooo good! Ryan was so kind and just kept bringing plate after plate of food and we ate it all! I highly recommend it to anyone who is planning a trip to New York!

Thanks Dan, Kristina and Natalie for helping us with the kids!

Lets go swimmin!

Many of you know that I taught swimming lessons forever and I just about dunked any and every kid that would get close to me in the water but when it came to my own child I was a little bit of a softy (Leah loves to point this out to me!). So I decided I would put Jack in swim lessons and let someone else do the dirty work. To my surprise he LOVES it and cries only when it's time to get out. Miss Lauren is so sweet but Jack better get ready for Farmington because when we go down next week I will be teaching a class of 2 year olds and I would be nearly as sweet!


Jane, Jane and more Jane!

I can not get enough of this girl. She is perfect in every way! She is rolling, gabbing, cutting teeth, and making her mom and dad smile many times each day. Here are some pictures of her in some cute little get ups...girls are way too fun!!!
