Thanksgiving Break-Day 1

For Thanksgiving, my sister who lives in DC came up with her husband, two kids, and parent-in-laws. They all stayed in a hotel in walking distance right next to the train station, so it was very convenient.

They arrived Wednesday morning, we went ahead and took photos with Santa, then headed into the city. My brother-in-law watched Eva and his youngest so we could go see Cinderella, it was so nice of him! I got us off at the Times Square stop because I didn’t realize how far the theater was, so we had about ten blocks of walking to do. But it was fun to show them Times Square and some other cool sights.

Cinderella was so good. The music was wonderful and brought me back to the old Brandy Cinderella I used to watch as a kid. I’m glad I remembered the music, that always makes it more fun. Claire knew the music so well she oftentimes started singing out loud which was adorable and hilarious.

At that point, T.J. was off work and met us at the theater to take home Claire. We then walked up to the Frick museum on the Upper East Side. Their current exhibit is Vermeer, Rembrandt, and Hals, showcasing the Girl with a Pearl Earring. It was very neat to see, and the museum is beautiful.

We had dinner that night at a little Italian place nearby called Bella Blu. I definitely recommend this place. It’s near the Frick, so make sure to try it out if you visit that museum.
