Today is our 15th wedding anniversary. We try to do a trip to celebrate our anniversary every 5 years. So, a couple of weeks ago we managed to time a trip perfectly in between blizzards to NYC. It was delightful!
|Todd on the airplane. Reveling in the super cheapness of the plane tickets I found, no doubt.|
|We dined at Ellen's Stardust Diner where my dear friend Chris-Ian is a waiter and performer. And if you are eating gluten free or vegetarian GET THE VEGGIE LASAGNA!! So. Good!|
|We took Todd's cousin, Cameron, with us to dinner. Because we like him. Look at how adorable he is!|
|Quick stop at the Times Square Toys R Us to take more pictures of things that would make our kids jealous. We're mean parents.|
|The next day we slept in, breakfasted late, braved the rain and went to the LDS temple at Lincoln Center. It's so beautiful inside and such a stark contrast to the bustle and noise right outside the doors.|
|And then off to a gluten friendly Indian restaurant where we sent another picture to our kids. This one of Todd enjoying naan. Benjamin would happily live off of nothing but warm naan if he were allowed to do so.|
|We couldn't figure out why this train was so uncrowded as we headed down to the theater for that night's performance. Then we noticed the sleeping man. Oh, well. On a rainy day in the city, it's tough to find a dry place to nap.|
|After we saw the new musical "A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder" we splashed back up to the apartment we were staying at and put on dry clothes to cuddle on the couch for a bit before bed.|
|And then back to Penn Station to catch the train back to the airport. The monitors just aren't as fun as the big flippy chart used to be, but I suppose progress is like that.|
|View from the train. I know it doesn't look like much, but it still looks like a piece of home to me.|
It was delightful to have a trip for a few days that was just the two of us. And even more delightful to realize that we still really like each other and were happy to spend as much time together as we could. We have many wonderful friends and relatives in the area, but we decided that we wanted to just be us on our trip. It was nice to feel good about that together.
