My Parents + NYC

After Chincoteague, my parents stayed with us for about three days. I never wanted them to leave. Goodbyes are the worst. But that’s besides the point of this post. The point is… we had a great couple of days together!

Backing up a bit, before Chincoteague, my Dad and I spent an afternoon in the Financial District. Most of the area was new to me, so it was so fun to see some new sites.

Eva had fun chasing pigeons in the park.

We got to walk through St. Paul’s chapel-the oldest surviving church building in Manhattan.

The NY Stock Exchange

A week later, on Saturday night-my parents and I went to the Chelsea Market and walked on the high line.

On Sunday, we went to church together and then went to Central Park afterwards. We also got to drive through the city at night which was the highlight of the trip for me! It was so cool to see so much of the city when it wasn’t busy, and without walking! We even drove through Times Square which was fun since we hadn’t been there for over a month.

Monday was our last full day together. We set out into the city around lunch time and walked all day long from the World Trade Center to Little Italy to the Empire State Building to Times Square. It was quite a day, but we saw a lot and had a great time together.

Lunch in Little Italy and cannolis as dessert!

Just a couple photos from our walk in the city, including two from the amazing Fishs Eddy shop. The dishes are very similar to what you’d see in Anthropologie but at a fraction of the cost. I came home with new silverware and my mom bought a bunch of those adorable nut bowls.

All of us in Times Square!

You may not tell from that picture, but Eva only has one shoe on. Eva is really into taking her shoes off lately. Without us noticing, she took her shoe off and threw it out of the stroller without us noticing! It really upset me because they fit her well and were perfect for splash parks. A couple days later, I got a package in the mail from Target with a new pair of shoes! My dad is the best and he sure loves his daughter/granddaughter!

Thanks, Mom and Dad, for coming to visit! It meant a lot and we loved having you guys!
