We had a great Thanksgiving. Fernando's parents came in town for the week. They were gracious enough to keep our kiddos while we made a weekend trip to New York. It was our first time to the big Apple and it has been over a year since we had a little weekend getaway. It was much needed.
our hotel was a 30 second walk from here
We arrived on Friday game day for LSU. Fernando researched and found an LSU bar in the city. And boy was it a Tiger bar! We were amazed. It was decked out in LSU gear, served a cajun menu, and every TV was showing the game. Fernando was in heaven.
Friday night we went to see the Rockette's 85th anniversary Christmas spectacular. It was beautiful. I kept wishing my kids were there to see how amazing it was. Radio City is a beautiful venue.

Saturday morning we went to the 9/11 memorial. We waited in a security line outside. I kept looking around just imagining what it must have felt like to see the buildings come down. It was emotional for me. I also kept thinking of people visiting that were there to remember a loved one.
Saturday night we went to the broadway show "Nice work if you can get it", with Matthew Broderick. We kept thinking of Ferris Bueller. It was a wonderful musical.
This was our hotel - The Sanctuary. It was a perfect location. 3 minute walk to Rockfeller, 30 seconds to Times Square. It was a quaint, boutique hotel. The concierge was outstanding. They made us reservations, got us tickets, gave suggestions, etc.
