 Stephen's mom, Dasha, was so nice and took us for a vacation to New York City. We were going to go last year, but plans changed when the hurricane went through and cancelled all the flights. Luckily we were still able to use our flights up to a year later. We went at the end of July. We stayed at The World Center Hotel.  We had such a nice view from our window. We could see the water, the new Freedom Tower, and the 9/11 memorial.

We were able to do so much while we were there! It helped that Beckham was such a great trooper! 
Tuesday: we went to Good Morning America, Empire State Building, Central Park and Central Park Zoo, walked around Times Square, and ate at Hardrock Cafe for dinner. 

Wednesday: We went to China Town, Little Italy, Brooklyn Bridge and Statue of Liberty. It started raining when we were in China Town.  After Brooklyn Bridge we went back to our hotel and we all took a nap. When we woke up it wasn't raining anymore, so we went on the ferry to Staten Island.

Friday: We went to the Museum of Natural History and spend most of the day there.  We then walked back to Times Square and ate at Bubba Gumps. We had to hurry and eat so Stephen and I could make our Broadway Show "Ghost". Dasha was kind enough to take Beckham back to the hotel and let us go to a show for our anniversary. 

We had such a fun time in NY! We were able to do so much in so little time! Like I said earlier, Beckham was a GREAT traveler.  He only fussed when he was hungry or tired. I think he enjoyed people watching almost as much as I did! :-) NY was a FUN place to visit, but I would NEVER want to live there!

  2. SO awesome!! I am so jealous you went to Chinatown... You know how much I love that stuff ;). Also, how was the play?? We need to talk soon!!
