NYC Trip

McKay and I just got back from a trip to NY and we had so much fun! For Christmas last year, McKay's parents gave us two tickets to wherever we wanted in the US so we decided to go to New York City! Here's some pictures from our trip {via iPhone} 

We left Friday night on a Red Eye and arrived at around 6:30am in New York. {we were SO exhausted!} we drove through Times Square to get to our Hotel, which was just a couple of blocks away.

After we checked into our hotel, we grabbed some breakfast at Cafe Metro and then headed over to Grand Central Station. 

Then, we headed over to the Yankees vs Red Sox game where we bought some delicious hot dogs and watched the Yankees beat the Red Sox which made McKay the happiest man in the world!

The next day, we went to church at the Manhattan Temple, met up with some friends for lunch at a delicious gourmet cafe, walked through Central Park went to the 9/11 memorial, rode a ferry to the Brooklyn bridge and to the Statue of Liberty, and then walked through Times Square where we found "Baked by Melissa" cupcakery! I had been looking all over for it and was so excited to find one! This was definitely my favorite day of our trip. 

On Monday, we went shopping down 5th Avenue, went to the Guggenheim Museum, the Empire State Building, China Town, Little Italy, Madison Square Garden, sightseeing, and then dinner at "The National" before heading back to our hotel. 
On Tuesday, we walked to Rockefeller Center, watched the ice skaters, did some shopping and sightseeing, and looked through the windows at the Today show before we had to head back to the hotel to check out and go to the airport. 

Overall, the trip was amazing! I loved getting away and spending time with McKay. Thanks, to my amazing Mother and Father-in-law, Mike and Lisa for making this trip happen! Love you guys!
