New York New York!

What an amazing two weeks we have had! An absolutely amazing wedding of my husbands cousin Ben and his lovely new wife Sarah. Beautiful setting in Buffalo, NY. Totally taken back by everything over the wedding weekend... 'taxi' to rehearsal party being a white limo, delicious meals and bbq's, great dancing and of course my husband looking superbly dapper in his tails! The pregnant fat girls dress i made was a success i think, loved the colour, nice and cool in the hot weather and the little flowers i made look pretty cute. Also don't think i look too fat in it which is nice! (And we matched in purple! Total fluke i swear!)

After the wedding weekend we were feeling a bit sad, as we had had such a fantastic time with all the family and it was great to see everyone. But we then flew to New York city!! And what a week we had there as well! Being preggers i had to take it easy but still managed to fit in loads of sights. We did A LOT of walking around and catching the subway etc.

Some of the things we saw...
Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island (alot of steps to walk up!)
The Empire state building (again alot of steps)
Central Park
Yankee stadium where we watched them play the Tampa Bay Rays
A comedy club in the East side
Top of the Rock (Rockefeller Centre)
The Natural History Museum
Little Italy, Chinatown and Soho
Chelsea Market and driving range
Greenwich Village
Times Square
Financial District including the site of the Twin Towers where they are building the new one
5Th Avenue and alot of shopping!
F.A.O Swartz toy store featured in the movie BIG
Pier 17
Grand Central Station (just amazing - was out local stop so used it loads)

I may have missed some, we just saw so many things on our way around. On our way to Buffalo for the wedding we also visited Niagara Falls and took a ride on the Maid in the Mist which was just immense!

I have far too many photos of the trip so just selected these few to show you or we'll be here all day!

View from 'Top of the Rock', you can see the Empire State Building right in the middle.

Me and the hubby at Top of the Rock, where this famous picture was taken.

Overall just a magical time. We really enjoyed ourselves. Probably the last big holiday we do for a while and certainly wont have one as easy to prepare for once our little boy arrives!

Exciting TA DA post to come soon! Just gotta find time in between gardening, tidying, washing, preparing for family visits, relaxing and crocheting to write a post about it! Possibly a tutorial on the way too, if i can work it all out!
