My Mom & Me in NYC: Monday

Sorry for the delay, Doug and I came down with the stomach flu on Wed night, and we're just getting back on our feet. And now, our final installment...

Monday morning was basically just a get up and get to the airport kind of day. We were blessed with good weather, which was nice because they were getting a snow storm that night, and we were missing it. I had a direct flight back to Madison (awesome.) We flew right over Manhattan and even though it was kinda hazy I tried to take some pictures of where we had been. I think they came out okay.

It was a non-eventful flight, but it was a wonderful trip. I'm so glad we went, and I feel so much better now after a little break from home!
Finally, here are some pics of the souvenirs I picked up for my family...
First, I got Doug this hat because he likes a warm head.
I got Sariah these awesome wooden puzzles at FAO Schwarz.
These are my souvenirs, a blank book and pencil/marker case I got at the Disney store & a I heart NY key chain.
Just some postcards I sent Sariah and Doug while I was away.
All the different cards and things I got from the places we visited/restaurants we ate at.

Once again I just want to say how lucky I was to go on this trip with my mom. I'm blessed with a wonderful husband that allowed me some spontaneity to take a random trip, to take my mom with me, and to stay home from work for 2 days and watch Sariah. Doug rocks. So if you ever get the urge to "get away" and head to NY, let me know, I've got some great recommendations!

Sorry to hear you've had the stomach flu. I had it too--got it a week ago. Not fun at all.

Glad you had a good trip!

Hey, Marin - this is awesome because Brent and I just "decided" we're going to New York this weekend! He's got interviews at two different universities (one in NY and one in CT) Friday and Saturday, but we'll have some time in the late afternoons/evenings, and Sunday morning. I'm a little nervous, to be honest! I appreciate your recommendations here; email me (regan@theashfords.org) if you have any other tips!!
