We had a blast in New York last week. Zach and I had never been together and it was E's first trip! It was a quick one, after a very long drive (yes, we drove :), but totally worth it. I'm pretty sure there were a few times in the car when we all felt like screaming, but we made it in one piece. And Christmas was all around us, which I loved (no surprise there). We got a great deal for a hotel literally across the street from Rock Center, and ended up in a room (tiny room) with an absolutely incredible view. It was called The Jewel of New York (got our room on Priceline)...highly recommend. Anyways, staying close to everything made being there with a toddler ten times easier, and more fun when we turned in a little earlier than we might have normally. And we were able to walk almost everywhere. Eloise loved looking around and at one point exclaimed, "Exciting! Exciting!" :) On the way back, we were able to stop in Pittsburgh and enjoy really refreshing time with friends.
