We spent this past weekend with family in Chatham, NJ. We had a wonderful visit with my SIL Karen and her dh, Bryant. We took a train into the city on Saturday to see Cirque du Soleil's Wintuk show at the Wamu Theatre at Madison Square Garden. The show was terrific!! The kids were mesmerized by the entire production which ended with show falling from the ceiling over the entire audience! WOW! We are pumped and ready for the holidays. We stopped at the Crayola Factory on the way up and Cabellas on the return trip home. It was a nice way to break up the drive. In the city, we walked to the American Girl Store, bought the the pets that went with each of the girl's dolls. The sun came out as we arrived and I was able to take a snapshot of the Empire State Bldg. We also saw the tree in Rockafeller Center (in the process of being decorated). Several stores had already begun to decorate their windows for Christmas and we had fun looking at the fabulous decorations and colors that were simply amazing! It was so neat to see so many of the SU! in-colors on display *snort*! We also saw St. Patrick's Cathedral, took a cab ride that nearly gave me a heart attack and went to the Short Hills Mall back in NJ. Santa was there, so naturally (my kids who have no fear) and went right up to him and started rattling off the desires of their heart. Now that mall was perhaps the best mall I've ever been in. David and I were able to wander around in Williams-Sonoma without the kids. I would love to go back just to spend a day at that mall.
We shared some memories that we will not soon forget!
