NYC Trip

The first time we went to NYC it rained most of the time, and I got sick so it really wasn't that much fun. This trip was definitely different, and I'm so thankful. The weather was perfect!

My dad and I ran in a 5K on Saturday that was part of the marathon festivities. It was great! There were over 5,000 runners in it.
My dad
Can you believe all those people? I'm in the pink tank top. I passed them all before I finished. Ha!
My mom and I played and shopped Saturday afternoon while Jason stayed off his feet. This woman has more energy than I've ever had! She can run circles around me. ; )
We were able to see Jason at mile 24, and I was so happy and relieved to see him after he finished. So proud of you, babe!
We went to Serendipity for dinner the night of the marathon.
This dessert was Jason's motivation throughout the race. ; ) Jason, my dad, and I shared this perfection, and there was still some left.
Monday night we met Suzanne and her husband Jim for dinner. I grew up with Suz and remember her just about as long as I remember living. ; ) I don't think we stopped talking the entire night. So good to see her!
Suz & I before we said goodbye on the subway
Tuesday Jason and I went to the WTC. My sweet husband likes to get his picture taken with all sorts of people. That's all I'm going to say about that!
 We also squeezed in Times Square before we had to go to the airport. I did not see any celebrities, but there's always next time!

Z gave us this picture when we got home. He was so excited.
That's Jason and me running on the left, and Zach, Colson, Gran, and G-Daddy cheering on the right. Z told us the tower in the middle was Fun City. ; )

We also came home to this banner...
So thankful for a wonderful trip and glad to be back home with our boys.

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.

Hey Katie!

What a fun trip yall had! So glad you had some time together and a little time to enjoy such a fun city (not that I've been, but that's what I hear! ;). The picture of the two of yall in Times Square is such a great picture. Beautiful couple. ;)

Hope you are doing great and enjoying being back with your sweet boys. Been thinking about you a lot because I just ordered JG's headstone. It's beautiful and the same company as Reese's, almost identical. I can not wait to send you a picture.

Thinking of you often, even 27 months later. ;)
