New York

It was another wonderful Thanksgiving in New York this year. Thanks to Sandie we were able to enjoy the Holidays with the whole family and enjoyed spending time going to museums, stores, broadway shows, and Twilight!!! (Ok maybe only the girls enjoyed that). The only ones missing where Jed and Alisha and their soon to be three boys.

We kicked off the trip with a visit to Radio City to see the Rockets perform their Christmas show. We also woke up early to catch the Macy's Day Parade Thanksgiving morning and to our enjoyment were able to watch the parade sail by in warm weather. We were able to see a lot of stars such as Miley Sirius, James Taylor, and David Archuletta! These were a few of the float highlights for us.

This is the view of the Parade passing through Columbus Cr. from Sandie's apartment, pretty impressive!

Next we hit Broadway with the show Greece which we also got a backstage tour (thanks to our new friend Natalie Hill who also stars in the production) and were able to meet former American Idol contestant Ace Young who played Knickie in the show. We also had a dress up night out to the show South Pacific, which was Fabulous!

Our last day there Derek and I were able to go to one an amazing brunch together (complements of Gary) in the infamous Rainbow Room. You can tell Derek started with chocolate dipped strawberries which where amazing. Also note that our water glasses are the only beverages that we have drunk out of...yeah we are not in Utah any more.

The end highlights of the city are the street side hot dogs, the sqiurrels in Central Park, and the cold weather which was cold enough to make little Pheonix wear what he could get.
