Steve and I were able to take off 2 days of work and end up with an extra long Thanksgiving vacation.
We have a list of places to go in the U.S. and at the top of the list was NYC.
We figured now was the perfect time to go, considering he has 2 brothers that live out there, we don't have any kids, etc. etc.
So...we took the red eye out to NY the week before Thanksgiving.
It was a perfect trip.
There was just enough sightseeing and family time/relaxing while we were there.
If we had it Beaver's way, there would have been a lot more sightseeing. And if we had it my way, there would have been a lot more relaxing. But we got a lot in.
Here are some pics from the trip:
Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island tour
Tour of the Yankee Stadium
And to top off that fun 3 day trip, we took a nonstop 7 hour bus ride to DC to spend Thanksgiving with my family.
We had a blast eating, sleeping, and watching movies.
We spent Thanksgiving with my cousins, the Fairholms.
Let's just say, after such a great vacation, it was hard to go back to work on Monday.
