One Unforgetable Weekend!

We had so much fun this past weekend with Jake's Mom, Dad, Grandma, and nephews Josh and Jeremy here visiting!! It was a weekend we will never forget! It was a sports weekend for the boys and a day of firsts for the girls! The boys were so spoiled and went to 3 sporting events in 3 nights with all 3 teams winning and sitting lower than the 3rd row for all!! Knicks game Friday night where they got to meet Shaun White, Rangers game with everyone (even the girls were invited to this one :)) sitting front row with a shootout win!! and a Giants game with field passes to finish the weekend off! They all said it was unbelievable and had a blast!

The boys at the Rangers game

Alexa and Kira's first Rangers game! They may have enjoyed the cotton candy more than the game, but they were awesome fans!
We love the RANGERS!!
The girls had an awesome day on Saturday! We went to Radio City Music Hall to see the Christmas Spectacular!!! We had great seats and the show was AMAZING!!! It really puts you in the Christmas spirit!!Before the show, we were able to go see Santa in his dressing room! He was so cute with the girls and Gram!!!
It was an unbelievable show! The Rockettes were awesome and they had a live nativity scene for the finale!
After the show, we got to go back stage for a tour of Radio City. It was so cool being behind the scenes after seeing the show! This is one of the many dressing rooms!
The camels from the live nativity! One of the costume people gave Lex and Kika the cheeks that the Rockettes wear during the soldier skit!

After the show we took a bicycle taxi to Madison Square Garden! It was a little scary at times since we had to go about 20 blocks and there wasn't much protection! It was a beautiful night though and a fun first for everyone!

Thanks Lisa and Scott, Mom, Dad, Gram, Josh, & Jer for an amazing weekend! We love you!

Fun with the boys!

This past weekend Jake's Mom, Dad, Grandma, and nephews Josh and Jeremy came to NJ for a fun weekend visit! It was a quick, event packed weekend, but we had so much fun visiting with everyone! The boys stayed at our place a couple nights and we stayed up til 4 am!!! It was so fun playing cards and being goofy with them! They are the best boys and we love hanging with them!

Fun Birthday in the City!

2 weeks ago for my BIG DAY Jake had a great day planned! We took the train into the city early afternoon, had a great lunch at The American Bread Company, walked, shopped, walked, and shopped! The highlight of the night was our dinner at Two Times Square! The restaurant is on the 3rd story of the Renaissance Hotel on Times Square and it's all windows! The view was amazing and the food was great! After dinner, we went to the Rangers game at Madison Square Garden! It was an unbelievable game that went into overtime and ended in a shoot out and NYR won!!
