Amanda beat me to blogging our trip, and did such a great job summarizing that I’m afraid I can’t add much to it! So here are some of my favorite photos with brief explanations. See Amanda’s blog and the flickr accounts for me, Ben, and Jenn for more travel bits.
Beautiful produce and crafts at the Union Square Farmer’s Market. I got some art prints for the nursery from this artist.
Second breakfast was at Le Pain Quotidien. Loved their bread and spreads.
Third breakfast was hot cocoa from Chocolate by the Bald Man. Next time I’m in NY I’ll have to stop here for dessert. The waffles and fondue looked really good.
The Tim Burton exhibit at MOMA was fun, but I think I enjoyed seeing the other classics even more. And the benches. I was a big fan of the benches.
I’m glad we made it to a deli. I had a rueben in the hospital cafeteria yesterday because I can’t get this sandwich out of my head. I love pastrami and cole slaw! Ben attacked a true NY cheesecake and declared it delicious.
Bebe Neurwirth made this show for me. No one can do isolations like that girl.
Ben and I skipped the second museum in favor of extra sleep the next day. We leisurely got up and walked to Rockefeller Plaza. They had Easter lilies and gorgeous azalea trees.
Mavi and Jeff met us at Jing Fong in Chinatown for dim sum lunch. By the way, I have no idea why I look so grumpy in most of my pictures. Maybe because my mouth was always full? I seriously had a great time during the whole trip. I apologize to my family if I looked like a grumpy toad the whole time.
After dim sum we shopped around SoHo and got our second round of Pinkberry. I picked up some beautiful yarn to add to my basket of beautiful yarns with no purpose yet. Then we had a fancy-pants dinner at BLT Fish. This restaurant tried their hardest to make me dislike them, but I wouldn’t let them. First, many of you know I hate seafood. Yes, all seafood. Yes, I have tried “this is the best though, it doesn’t even taste fishy” many times as my fellow diners entice me to try again. I still hate it. So I ordered the only non-fish item on the menu, filet mignon. Normally this is no biggie-except for the whole rare meats are bad when you’re pregnant thing. I had them cook it as much as possible without ruining it and they did a perfect job. It was still delicious. Everyone else seemed enchanted with their fish entrees. Ben got to make up for all the fish-less meals he endures at home.
After Lend Me a Tenor (which was really good and funny) we found dessert and snacks at Junior’s across from the theater. I realized that I had ordered pickles and ice cream, how cliche is that?
Here’s mah swag, lots of fun things to take home, aside from my fun memories. I love traveling with my family! I hope it doesn’t slow down once we have a kid. (I foresee a fantastic trip to Disneyland in 5 years or so).
