The Yankee fans in our family headed to NYC last weekend to watch a game and enjoy the city. This was Ashby’s first Yankee game and she was PUMPED!! At one point, Andrew texted me and said that the three of them had made a pact to go to a game every year for the rest of his life. Ha! I hope they do!! I know how special seeing a baseball game with your dad is…I’m almost 36 and I still think it’s special every.single.time.
So, here are some pics from their fun time. They went, they ate, they saw a show, they stayed up really late, they ate some more, they went to the 9/11 Museum, they ate and they saw the Yankees beat the Red Sox. Sigh.
Off they go! Dallas to NYC! Side note: Andrew did her hair. I was impressed 🙂 .
Their flight left Dallas at 6:00 AM, so that they had plenty of time in New York that day. First stop, lunch.
And then of course, their second stop was Serendipity! Ashby had a strawberry cheesecake sundae…and it looks like she loved it!
They hit up Dylan’s Candy Shop after that and Andrew bought me gummy bears…because he’s the best husband ever. Ha! After that, he said they went back and took a quick nap so that they were geared up for dinner and a show. They had a window table at Carmine’s before heading off to see Anastasia!
He looks like he’s having no fun, right?!
Kensington and I had seen Anastasia back in June and loved it so much that we knew they needed to see it too! It is such a good show! They all three told me that they really liked it. They also told me that they enjoyed their Dylan’s Candy during the show too 🙂 .
The next morning, they had breakfast at The Smith…because Smith loves to eat at The Smith. Ha!
This might be my favorite thing ever.
And then after breakfast, they went to the 9/11 Museum. Andrew told me that it’s the best museum he’s ever visited. I really think this was the highlight of their trip.
After the museum, they headed to Georgetown Cupcakes! Annnnnnnd…they were surprised by…
My dad had coincidentally bought a ticket to that night’s game too, so he flew up that morning and surprised the kids (Andrew knew) that afternoon before the game.
My dad sent me this picture. They played a lot in the park that day.
Lots of subway riding on this trip…
…my kids love riding the subway. Ashby walked this whole trip instead of a stroller which worked out great because taking a stroller on the subway is not easy work!
And then, they got ready for the game! They had shopped earlier so that Ashby had plenty of Yankee stuff to wear. Andrew said that she insisted on a baseball cap too 🙂 .
I’m pretty sure my husband was in heaven.
Two peas in a pod.
She came home completely ruined. She is a Yankees fan for life now. Sigh.
So much to say about this picture! Andrew said she could not stop eating peanuts. (That’s our Ashby for you…she’ll pass on anything and everything sweet and since I’m assuming Yankee Stadium doesn’t sell chopped up bell peppers or jalapenos, she picked peanuts instead.) But look! She can use her right hand now!!! Y’all…9 very painful procedures in less than 12 months has done this. Look! She can bend her fingers now! She could not bend her fingers this time last year. And now, she can bend them enough to hold a peanut. PRAISE JESUS!!!!! My mama heart could just explode. She couldn’t bend them at all. And now, they are assisting her. It’s such a blessing. Oh how I love this extraordinarily tough kid!
Whew! That’s a wrap on Yankee Game 2017.
Kensington, Madeley and I enjoyed our special time at home while they were away. When Madeley is a little bit older, she is going to come to Red Sox games with us.
I’m not posting tomorrow, but will be back on Friday! We are actually off having fun this week and celebrating the end of summer. See YOU on FRIDAY!
