New York 2012

Since last weekend we have been crazy busy! We decided last minute to go to the Jason Aldean concert and we are so glad we did! Luke Bryan and Lauren Alaina opened up for him and we had awesome seats:


On Monday Kyle and I boarded a train and headed off to NYC. We were excited for this trip as neither one of us had been. We had an AMAZING time!!!! Here is a breakdown of our trip with some pictures.

Monday- Arrived in NYC at 11:30pm. We headed off to our hotel and got some rest before the walking began the next day.

Tuesday- We headed off to Battery Park so we could catch the ferry to Ellis Island and Liberty Island. It was such an incredible experience because of all the history on both of these islands. Here are a few pictures:

After we got back to the city we decided to walk back to our hotel (about 4 miles). On our way we decided to go see the 9/11 Memorial. What an amazing experience and one that neither of us will ever forget!!!

Once we got back to the hotel we decided to talk to the Concierge about getting tickets to a broadway show for Wednesday. We were able to get an amazing dinner/show package to see "Wicked"!!! We had dinner at a delicious diner down the street and ended the night full and happy.

Wednesday- We ended up going to Pier 17 and see the BODIES exhibit. For anyone that doesn't know what this is, it is an exhibit that actually has real human bodies. It breaks the body down and shows all the smallest details, it was awesome! I highly recommend it.We then went to Central Park where I got the see this amazing statue:

After we finished up Central Park we went to a place my sister recommended called "Dylan's Candy Bar". WOW!!! Over 7,000 different types of candy and goodies. We went upstairs to the cafe and had this:


We were so full and decided to walk back to the hotel to get ready for dinner. We went to this amazing Italian restaurant called Alfredo of Rome. We had an amazing 3-course meal and enjoyed each others company. Once we were done at dinner we were off to see "Wicked".

Our seats were amazing!!!!

This show was spectacular!!!!! It was very overwhelming and just overall amazing! I will definitely see it again. I love everything about it.

Thursday- This was our last full day in the city and we headed off the see the Empire State Building. It was awesome!! I am really afraid of heights but I felt surprisingly calm.

We were able to meet up with a few friends of ours that uses to live at Bragg. Brian was Kyle's former company commander and ended up becoming a good friend along with his wife Carrie. It was great to see familiar faces. After lunch we went to Serendipity 3 and had this:


We were sad to leave NYC but so glad to get home! Kyle has some more time off and I am having my eye surgery on Thursday!
