It’s Memorial Day weekend, so just like most other Americans, we’re focusing less on the the whole “memorial” thing and more on the 3-day weekend. (Don’t worry,we remember our fallen soldiers quite often thanks to my former-Marine husband).
We decided to leave our tourist-infested city to go bother some other snobs who also hate tourists– New Yorkers!
We usually take the bus or Amtrak, but chose to drive this time; that meant a lot of “I’m boooorreeedd,” mostly from me. The girls were fine. I did take some cool pictures along the way to pass the time…
And finally, 5 hours later…
I started embracing my inner tourist just minutes after we got here, blasting the Rent soundtrack while snapping pictures of Avenue C. This weekend is going to rule!
There are a few things you’re probably wondering about, so let’s clear them up right now:
- Did the girls wear tutus for the trip? Absolutely. Swimsuits, too. Which is a good thing because we got caught in an afternoon thunderstorm.
- Are you still doing your vegan thing? You betcha! Fortunately, there are delicious vegan options on every corner. If I ever decide to do this permanently, we’d have to move here.
- Is that purple cast still on your arm? Yes, but only until Tuesday! (side note: if you ever accidentally wear a dress that matches your cast, you will hear about it. All.Day.Long.
- What kind of shoes are you wearing for all the walking in NY? Ok, you’re probably not wondering this but Dave was after noticing my flip flops. Since I didn’t bring any good walking shoes (hehe) we were forced to stop at DSW tonight to buy some… and also some platform wedges. What?! They’re comfortable!
