it seems odd that the first day of spring i am posting photos of a blizzard….for the last installment of our new york pictures, i present HERCULES 2014. both of us are born and raised in tennessee, so we have never seen snow like this. it started snowing the night before and we woke up to a winter wonderland. we practically ran down to central park to find families and children sledding – everyone seemed so happy! i had to include this next shot of josh stealing a child’s sled and wiping out…he says sledding down the hills that day was one of his favorites memories of the trip.
we explored a personal favorite, the metropolitan museum of art (met). i love the eqyptian wing shown below; the windows were even more beautiful framed in snow. i wanted to post a few pictures of the cute apartment we rented in the upper east side from airbnb. we had a little kitchen and living room to kick up our feet after longs days. our host was very sweet and it was overall a good experience.
we knew our travel home might be delayed due to snow and ice, but i don’t think we were prepared. we had to stay in the city an extra day after all flights were cancelled for a week…we hitched a ride with my dad the next day. 36 hours later, we were happy to be home to see this little guy. nyc, chantal and paul – we love you.
