Jen, the kids and I spent the week in New York City. What an experience. While the kids were there with Rosemount High School Marching Band to perform in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, Jen and I were there for moral support and to explore the city. It sure was strange being in a city with our kids but not being with our kids….But we sure made the best of it.
We explored the city day and night and took in as much as we could. Highlights include seeing Leslie Jones at the Comedy Cellar, Stephen Colbert and Kinky Boots. We ate incredible food. Walked the park. Went to museums. Explored our country’s history. Yeah, we had fun.
But the real reason we were there was to see our kids. We feel we were blessed with the fact that with about a million people lining the streets, we made eye contact with our kids. That is a miracle! The band also stopped right in front of us and Nathan, our son, was directly in front of us. Again, a true miracle. We even managed to get him to break his form by getting the crowd to chant his name until he looked over and saw us! (He wasn’t supposed to do that either as the band is required to maintain form.)
So with that, I am going to just leave you with a big image dump. We had a blast. Leave a comment if you’d like to know something specific about an image or our trip.

Thank you New York City! What a time we had. We left lots to do so we will be back. Until next time!
