Missing New York

Reality has set in. School, work, piano, dance, baseball, scouts, tumbling, baseball again, sleep, repeat.

The Spencer 5 are itching for summer vacations! Bear Lake and North Carolina can't come soon enough!

P.S. Doesn't Lucy look smart, cute and grown up?

We traveled to the Big Apple to visit my parents for spring break. As soon as we arrived at Lincoln Square they took us to Patsy's for real New York pizza. We learned to fold our pizza and ate ourselves sick!

Our New York City adventures included: Central Park walks, The Met, MOMA, Ellis Island & the Statue of Liberty, walking across the Brooklyn Bridge, the Natural History Museum, 9/11 Memorial, a Mets game, visiting the Harlem LDS chapel, Times Square, Empire State Building, Top of the Rock, American Girl brunch, Mary Poppins, hanging with the Quayles, 5th Avenue, FAO Schwarz, many subway rides and spending lots of time with Grandpa and Nana. Phew!

We ate many dirty water dogs, Gray's Papaya, BBQ at Virgil's, pizza at Patsy's & Grimaldi's, Halal cart fare, hamburgers from Shake Shack, Magnolia Bakery, gelatos, Bomboloni pastries (yum!), black & white cookies from Juniors. We pretty much ate and walked!

Perhaps the most memorable experiences for the kids were rats on the subway, a crazy man taking on a bus, trying to master their New York accent, graffiti in Queens, climbing rocks in the Ramble, playing catch in Central Park, Adam at the Times Warner Center and being squished on the subway.

We had the best time!
