My dad flew out Thursday for he and Maggie's 2nd birthday! It became an entire weekend of celebrating! Seana had a conference she had to attend Friday morning in NYC and her company approved a hotel room in Manhattan so she wouldn't have to get up at the crack of dawn on Friday to go... So we decided to make a family trip of it with my Dad meeting us when he got in Thursday night! The hotel we got was the Le Parker Meridian.. very contemporary.. but we got a "suite" with a pull out bed/couch so everyone had a place to sleep! It is at a great location...
1) there was a Starbucks right across the street
2) it is only a couple blocks from Central Park and FAO Schwartz!!
So while Seana was doing her business thing... Dad, Maggie and I took a stroll through part of Central park!
Posing in front of Central park!
Checking out a pond!
Checking out the grass!
Listening to a saxophone player and getting photos taken by Grandpa!
For Lunch Seana went to a place called the Rouge Tomate ~ It turns out they have a lunch cart so we also had the Rouge Tomate for lunch! We had upscale burgers... unfortunately baby to be wasn't having it and my stomach decided half a burger was all it could take! Ahh pregnancy. We wandered by the Central Park Zoo and Dad got he and Maggie some dipping dots ice cream!
We made our way to FAO Schwartz where Maggie got to play on the piano from the movie "BIG!" It was fun to see her try it out, she was however too light to get most of the keys to play for her... maybe next year!
After FAO Schwartz we found our way to where Seana had lunch and met up with her for the ride back home!
Saturday (15th) was Maggie's birthday party! She opened some presents...this time with a bit more enthusiasm then her 1st birthday but not much... the presents just don't seem to be her thing!
She had two of her friends over, Dorian and Amber!
And the cake was ice cream cake!! YAY!!
On Sunday, Seana hung out with Maggie, while my Dad and I went to a Yankees Game! It was the Yankees -vs- Rays (Tampa) it was a great game... a little hot out where our seats were as they were in the sun... but the Yankees won!
On Monday morning we went to the park and Maggie did some swinging....
And some exploring!!
Then it was time to say goodbye to Grandpa in the afternoon, so it was off to the airport so he could catch his flight back to New Mexico! All in all it was a great birthday weekend!
