Start Spreading the News..we're back!

Olive was the only one to follow the orange theme color in her wardrobe
The first leg of our journey: the train.  We were rocked in our beds, but not much sleep was had over the 18 hour ride.  The food was less than desirable,  and our living space was about 
4 X 7 feet, but we loved it!

We knew New York would be crowded at this time of year, but it was a bit much that we had to wait in line around the corner of FAO Schwarz to get in.  Divine and Olive (Pearl was too busy eying the giant stuffed horses) playing a little tune on  the giant piano from Big.
Relaxing with a stranger on a bench
Pearl and me, enjoying a light drizzle in Times Square
Olive, Ryan, Azure (in stroller), Divine, and Claudette
The line-up of strollers, boots, raincoats, and mittens at the Manhattan ward--it must be a walking city!
The only way Azure could get her nap in some days
We were glad Santa still found us in New York!

I still haven't caught my breath (or caught up on laundry) from our trip to the Big Apple, but we are also still reveling in the magic we experienced while there.  Thank you to Gammy and Papa Thom for making it possible.  


  1. Wow looks like a fun trip! I have never been to New York but I would love to see it someday.

  2. Katy! Yay!!! I have been so anxious to see and hear about your trip. It looks like you had a blast! What is your home phone number?

  3. Dills in the Big Apple. Looks like a winning combination!

  4. What an adorable family! I was so excited to find your blog address again. You have beautiful girls and such fun adventures! Love and miss you! Melissa Staheli

  5. Looks a little cramped at the beginning, a little cold in between but lots and lots and lots of fun all throughout! Can't wait to hear more.


Be a lamb & tell me what's on your mind.
