Our Trip to New York City : the Last Two Days

There was a lot of walking this past weekend.

In between wedding events on Saturday, we meandered the streets of New York City. A highlight of our sightings was this shiny, red engine that had just backed into its garage right before we walked by, lights and sirens blaring. Evey was in awe.fire truck nyc

Stephen was part of the wedding party so we dropped him off in the morning to prep and feast while we went on our own adventure. We found ourselves at Central Park for a little picnic in the gorgeous spring weather.

Even did a little swing time…

These were my seat mates as we waited for the ceremony to begin inside the gorgeous St. Malachy’s chapel in Midtown.

I managed to snap a few pics inside the chapel before the girls awoke from their naps.

Lucie attempted to sing with the choir throughout the ceremony, but otherwise, was well-behaved.

The reception was at the Copacabana Club, on their rooftop lounge.

True to form, Evey couldn’t wait for the dancing to commence so she was swinging with her daddy before others got out on the dance floor.

And, just like her mama, was one of the first out on the floor when the party got started. 😉

She kept escaping back onto the floor to bust a move.

She was also very fond of the mother-of-the-bride and tried to hang out with her every moment she got.

Lucie was not as easily entertained.

L is not impressed

Unless Evey was around. 😉

On Sunday, our flight didn’t leave until 5:30 in the evening so we escaped back into the city for one last adventure….to the second-largest bookstore in the US!

And a tasty treat at Dean & Deluca in the New York Times building.

Bye-bye, New York! See you next time.

Back home on west coast soil, a bit bleary-eyed, we still had a 2+ hour drive home. The girls conked while Stephen and I loaded up on caffeine to make the drive back.

We love to hear from you!
