New York 2008 - Our Thanksgiving Vacation

It's official we LOVE New York!

This scary thing is from the game Candyland (Skye's gettin it for Christmas!)
The whole fam!
Check out this sweet hummer limo. No, we didn't roll in this, but the driver let us look inside, and man was it cool!
Skye was actually posing in front of the M&M and we took a couple of pics, and then she said that she wanted to "hold him". She loved sitting up there.

Last year Robbie's family took us to New York for Christmas, and this year we got to go for Thanksgiving! It was so much fun, we got to see the Macy's Day Parade up close, go shopping with the million other people there for the parade, and take in the holiday sights and sounds. Thanks so much Mom and Dad for taking us, it was so much fun!

American Museum of Natural History

We got to go the American Museum of Natural History. It was so cool! My favorite part was the dinosaur bones! Those things are huge! The herd of elephants was pretty cool too! Skye loved the whole thing. She would just grab your hand and go from exhibit to exhibit. She'd spend about 30 seconds at each one, but didn't miss one!

Check out this close up of Skye's face in the elephant photo!


Wintuk is a sweet Cirque Du Soleil type performance. It was amazing, there were so many sweet talents we were just in awe the whole time. There were a couple of amazing skaters, bikers, skateboarders, trapeze artists, flexible people (whatever they're called) and so much more. Skye totally loved it because there was lots to watch. I highly recommend this performance; and it was at Maddison Square Gardens, so that was way fun to see.

This is how excited we all were to see the show! :)

The amazing cast. Those dogs are people, they really acted
and moved like dogs, even while doing stunts! Impressive!
At the end, tons of snow flakes fell from the celing throughout the whole audience!

Like "Where's Waldo", but Where's Robbie?

More NY Fun!

Macy Day Parade!

We got to watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade from our hotel window at the Mariott Marquee in NYC! It was so much fun to see the whole parade, and Skye loved seeing Dora and all the princesses!

You know how when you go to a concert, you can weasle your way to the front row? Well here at the Macy's Day Parade, it's a little different! With over a million people here there was no way we could even get close to the front unless we wanted to camp overnight!

Ok, so there's a funny story that goes along with this picture! See the golf cart just to the right of Robbie? While we were posing for this picture, this golf cart ran Robbie's leg over! Now I'm not really sure how it happened, but Robbie had tire prints half way up his calf! They were clearing the people out of the streets after the parade, and were taking out people as they went!

The Cake!

She didn't make quite the mess this year!

Skye's birthday this year accidentally had a princess theme! Everything was pink and purple and so girly! She loved every second of her day! She got lots of fun presents from the family, and had a great party. She was so stinkin much fun to watch open her presents! She is just so animated, it didn't matter what the gift was, she was extatic! Her favorite part, though, was the cake. I made cupcakes for everyone, and when I tried to give Skye hers, she wanted nothing to do with it! She only wanted her cake, so I gave her a scoop of ice cream, and a slice of her cake, and she sat at the table and enjoyed it for at least 15 minutes, never saying a word, just loving life.

HaPpY BiRtHdAY SkYe!!!

Shout out to my little Skye on her 2nd birthday! She is so much fun to have around. We just love every minute we get to spend with her. She is so well behaved and such a doll. She is always happy; some kids are morning kids, and some kids are night ones, but honestly, Skye is both! I am so lucky to get to hang out with her every single day! What a joy she is in our lives.
