21 hours in NYC

This is the story of the time I went to NYC for 21 hours. 

I don't feel the need to write about all the trips I take - but there are some that are worthy of a quick little summary.

For as long as I can remember my mom has asked us if we wanted to go see The Radio City Rockettes.  It's never been something that's really on my list of things to do. But, sometimes things line up perfectly and you just have to go with it. And it's even better when it's a surprise.

I wasn't quite sure how my sister and I were going to surprise my mom with a trip to the Rockettes. But all the involved parties were on board and my Dad took charge of reserving time on the boss lady's calendar. With time reserved, we booked tickets and hotels and trains.

The trip involved my mom and baby sister train-ing in from Boston... while I flew in from Ohio (work trips are cool). Staying at the Waldorf Hotel in a sweet suite. Attempting to see the Rockefeller Tree all lit up at night. Buying roasted chestnuts on the street. Some light daytime walking and shopping. Checking out St. Patrick's Cathedral .... and the SHOW. Then, on the train home. 21 hours.

Oh, and that top picture is of our (complimentary) Champagne Cocktails at the Bull and Bear Bar

But I'll let the pictures tell more of the story.

 late night stroll to see the lights
 ... and more lights.
 capturing some on-camera giggles
 the roasted chestnuts purchase
new york bagels for the win. always.
checking out the sites
lighting candles in the Cathedral
 ready to see the show!
our seats!
laughing so hard we cried on the train home

I'm not sure I need to see the Rockettes every year. But, it was pretty great to be a part of crossing something else off their bucket list.

Merry Belated Christmas.
