Thanksgiving 2011 (New York City)

Our long Thanksgiving weekend was beyond fantastic! (The only thing better would have been to have had Christi with us, smile!) The van turned the 100,000 mile mark on what couldn't have been more familiar territory to it - filled with our family on the way to the east coast. Shayne drove Christi (and all of us) so many times back and forth over the years. My sister and her family met up with us and we had a wonderful time enjoying each other's company. We saw a few shows (Rockettes, Phantom and Anything Goes), did some shopping, eating and touring (Chinatown, Little Italy, Central Park, Times Square, St. Pat's - lit a candle for Christi's soul, the Met, Restaurant Row) and caught up with a couple of sweet NYC friends - really more like family! I hope you and yours also were blessed with a great Thanksgiving.

The newest Rockettes - hee hee!

Another highlight of our long weekend in NYC was meeting up with Nitza at the Met. She gave Shayla the tour she's been asking for - Greek Mythology, based upon characters from one of her latest book series (Percy Jackson). Nitza is absolutely amazing - brilliant, beautiful, compassionate and an old soul!

Some families camped out to get a great parade watching spot, others just showed up, hmmmmm! Gotta love my sister's family! THANKS!

Shayne catches up with his brother-in-law in the big apple.

The girls LOVED watching the Rockettes dance at Radio City Music Hall (so did my sister and I)!

Since I have a picture of Shayla with this Pokemon balloon from our parade spot in 2003, I thought I'd better capture another one. The girls used to love Pokemon!

Cousins in Central Park

We actually ran into some friends from our hometown on the street in Times Square - CRAZY!

"The Balloon Blowup" on Wednesday night - crazy!

Fun in Times Square
