Oh how I loooove long weekends. I was counting down the hours at work on Friday ready to be set FREE! Lil Mama and I didn’t have any plans for the weekend, so we picked up and left for NYC. You see, I like a schedule; I like consistency so this spontaneous trip was seriously out of my comfort zone. But, it was to see my boo in the big apple so I went with it…and I’m glad I did, we had a ball, as we always do in NYC.
The weather was sunny and warm and Saturday was crazy muggy – but better than a weekend full of rain. We spent the majority of the weekend outdoors taking in the sites and taking advantage of all the great memorial weekend activities.
We took a ferry over to Governor’s Island and explored the historic island. There was music, crafts, and bike riding. We got a little too close to the water and got splashed!
We love love love the Night at the Museum movies so I was psyched to bring lil mama to the American Museum of Natural History. She got really excited seeing some of the same things in the museum from the movie.
I had my *first* Coldstone experience. And I WILL be going back!!
Random subway dancing at the end of the day made everyone smile.
My weekend trips to NY have been great – but I’m glad to be home. It’s a beautifully dirty city; I wanted to shower in hand sanitizer haha. But the food, oh the fooood in NYC will have me going back in a heartbeat.
That’s my weekend wrap-up. Do share your weekend highlights!!
