This weekend I traveled to New York City to visit Kevin and my in-laws made the trip as well! Kevin’s in NYC for six weeks for training for work, so it was great to see him and have everyone together for the weekend.
I flew in late Thursday night, and I spent Friday afternoon with my in-laws. We met for lunch at a delicious organic restaurant called Ellary’s Greens. We then made our way to Battery Park and boarded a ferry to Liberty Island to see the Statute of Liberty.
It was my first time seeing the Statue of Liberty. It was such a beautiful day to be outside and sightsee!
We got an up close view and then spotted some delicious ice cream cones we couldn’t pass up, yum! After walking around the island we boarded the next ferry to Ellis Island and walked through the museum there before heading back to Manhattan.
On Friday night Kevin and I had dinner at a restaurant called Hundred Acres with my mother-in-law, father-in-law, brother-in-law and his girlfriend. We were celebrating my mother-in-law, Leslie’s, birthday so after dinner we went to my brother-in-laws apartment for some cupcakes, and then went to a late night comedy show. We didn’t get to bed until 3am. It really is the city that doesn’t sleep!
On Saturday we started the day with brunch at a local diner and then watched the Michigan State football game at a MSU bar. Later in the day, Kevin and I took a stroll down 5th Avenue, and we stopped in Time Square. At night, the crew met back up and we took a boat cruise around Manhattan before heading to a late dinner. Kevin’s parents left town after dinner, so we said goodbye and called it a night.
On Sunday, Kevin and I went to brunch at Sarabeth’s and did some shopping in the meatpacking district before I had to head to the airport. The weekend went by so fast, but it was a great trip and I’m excited to see Kevin again in a couple of weeks!
