A wonderful New York trip

Hello!  I feel like I have been living under a rock
When you go off blogger for several weeks, I must say it's a bit of a weird feeling.  This evening, I am looking forward to having a glass of wine and visiting all of my favourite people and their blogs!  I've missed them!

So New York was great, really great.  Though the day before we left,
we found out that all of my husband's races for the World Police & Fire Games had been cancelled due to flooding on the mountain from Hurricane Irene.  He was so disappointed, but come on, it's still New York!  So we made the best of it and had a wonderful time. 

I loved the Museum of Natural History, adored SoHo, really wanted to buy something from Bloomingdale's just so I could walk around with a 'big', 'medium', or heck even a 'small' brown bag, but never did!  Went to Century21 on the advice of many people, but quickly walked back out. With mobs and mobs of people, I wasn't ready to sort through racks of designer clothing, even if things were a screaming deal.
Had fun walking up and down Fifth Avenue and then Madison Avenue, also had the blisters to prove it.  Quick note of advice ~ don't go out and buy an expensive pair of walking shoes the day before a trip. You will get blisters, though they may be labelled 'comfortable', they are still new shoes!

Our Yankees vs the Jays game was fun, though it was incredibly hot sitting there under the beating sun.  We were definitely the only ones in the nearby vicinity who were cheering for the Jays.  Had to take out a small loan just to eat a few hamburgers and have a few drinks, but it was worth it!

Here are some snapshots of the trip ~ I have been playing around with photos on Instagram with my IPhone and these are some of them, please ignore the many different borders and filters. I'm too lazy to go back and download the original ones from my phone.

we were certainly in the heart of times square!

a beautiful place in Central Park...

my heart skips a beat every time I walk into a Sephora...

(there was not much of a resemblance, but he loved it!)

couldn't resist, I'm a girl who grew up in the 80's
(Big anyone?)

Shhh...don't tell!

A small boy in the big city!


  1. So glad Jay moved up and moved on...looks like Master Jack has memories for a lifetime. Love, love, love that town.
    Remind me Trish to show you the first photos I took of my family at that 'beautiful place in Central Park'...that was when I fell in love with photography.

  2. Glad you had fun Trish...hard not to in NY isn;t it. I am known for not having comfy shoes for walking. To be honest, it has put a damper on many trips because I am foolish to think I can walk all day in certain shoes. I am on a mission to find a really comfy pair, break them in and take them wherever I go.

    Such a shame about the races being cancelled...

  3. Love the photos Trish...our Jack looks soooo grown up! Adore that Lego shot.
    I think we all have had the same sore feet when visiting a new city...I took two pairs of so called 'walking' shoes to Paris and still got blisters.
    Chania has the best adivce...have those stylish, broken in shoes ready to go!
    Where are the next WP&FG going to be? After seeing him flying off cliff edges on his bike at the last one...can't say I wasn't a little bit relieved to know he wasn't competing this year....shhhhh don't tell him I said that.
    Let's get together at my place for a family dinner soon.

  4. Hi Trish,

    Welcome back! Good to hear you and your family had a great time in NY. I have never been there myself, but it sounds like a great city to me. Hopefully I will be able to visit one day. It must have been special for you son too. There is so much to see....and that football match.... it's sounds like fun!!

    Happy new week!

  5. Love all the photos! It looks like you had a brilliant time and I would have done EXACTLY the same: taken a pic of that (whatever it's called) "floor piano" from Big! :-D Have a good week xo

  6. New York and so much to do. You did a lot and no doubt have wonderful memories. We usually go for 4 days and it still only makes a small dent in all that needs to be done. Thanks for your post

  7. Welcome home Trish!!! Sounds like you now have a bit of NYC's amazing energy in your blood! What a fabulous time you all had...and great advice about the shoes, I recently did the same and wasn't able to wear them at-all!
    xo J~

  8. Pure joy! I love that city! Welcome home

  9. Hello,
    I visited your blog today - I saw you on 'White Torquoise Chocolate.' Your photos are so pretty, colorful, and full of life!! New York looks like so much fun! My daughters are travelers, and that's the one place they haven't been to and want to go. We started a new blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would really enjoy coming back to visit with you. Your blog is so unique, and I am leaving here today with a smile. Hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day.

  10. I visited New York in the 90's on my "round world trip" and loved every minute of it. It's on my list of places to visit again. Your photos are fab! Em x
