New York, New York

Sorry I haven't posted for so long a time, but we have been trying to get outside to work as much as possible. This past Saturday, we went to New York with Jill's college kids. The babies did really well. Kateri and Luc took naps and Sydney was looking out the window and flirting with everyone. We lucked out because the Pope was in town. I have never seen so many priests and nuns walking around. Needless to say, we felt VERY safe! We just missed seeing the Pope because we had lunch reservations for noon and he wasn't coming through until 1pm and we didn't get out of the Mexican restaurant until after 2pm!

The food was awesome. Kateri and Luc couldn't get enough of the guacamole! I made sure I bought some at the grocery store yesterday. We walked around the city a little. It was also Earth Day so we picked up some freebies. We went to Central Park Zoo, which was kind of lame, but we saw triplet boys in a cute wagon-train. We walked around the park and watched some roller skaters dancing. The babies had their first New York hot dog which they REALLY enjoyed.

We went out to a burger joint for dinner where Luc proceeded to spill half a glass of red wine all over my shirt and pants. Thank God we were leaving by then. Sydney passed out before we were out of the city. Kateri fell asleep soon after and Luc passed out a hour before we got home! The Pope delayed us getting out of the city because they shut the bridge out of Harlem down so he could go through. We would have been home a hour earlier, but oh well! It was a great time and I would definitely do it again. The kids traveled really well. The only problem we really had was with restaurants not allowing carriages in. Next time we go, we'll wait until Luc is walking.
