NYC with Erin

So Erin and her roommate Lisa came to NYC for the weekend so I went in for the day to hang out with them. It was so much fun. We walked across the Brooklyn Bridge, went shopping on Canal Street, and ate at Mama Mexico. I would post lots of pics but Erin and Lisa took most of them so I am waiting for them to send them. But here are a few:

I will post more when I get them!!

Maybe It's Just Not Meant To Be

So Ben and I (well maybe actually just me) have wanted to see Mama Mia since it has been out but we just have not made it. Then we thought it had left the theaters but Ben found it in a theater about 15 minutes away. So last night Ben and I decided to go. We thought we knew where the theater was but unfortunately we were wrong. We ended up going to the opposite direction. Once we realized it we turned around and we finally got there 15 minutes late. We did not mind that too much since all we would miss was previews anyway. We went to the box office to get our tickets and we find out they only take cash. Too bad we didn't have any cash on us and the nearest ATM was a couple blocks away. Needless to say we turned around and came back home.
Then tonight we thought we would try again. We decided we would give ourselves plenty of time so we would not be late. But lets just say it did not work that way. Once we got on the freeway we noticed that there was tons of traffic. So we thought it would be better to take the back roads to the theater instead of sitting on the freeway. So after navigating through all the random towns we made it only 3 minutes late. We got to the box office to buy our tickets and they told us that last night was the last night they showed Mama Mia.
So we have come to the conclusion that maybe we are just not meant to see Mama Mia.

Weekend Vaca

So Ben's brother Matt and his wife Jenn came out for a vaca in NYC. They got here on Friday night and came to CT for the weekend. While they were here we went into the city (my first time since living out here), Hershey PN, and Gettysburg. We had so much fun.


We walked arount Central Park before eating at Mama Mexico, which I must say was so good. While we were there Ben had the Marachi(sp?) band play some song from his mission. He was quite excited about that.

We went on the Hershey tour of how they make chocolate and then bought a lot of chocolate.

Ben was quite intrigued by the cannon.
