New York, New York

I had a work project in New Jersey over the 4th of July holiday and my coworkers finally persuaded me to go into Manhatten for the first time.

This is just after coming out of the subway from Hoboken, NJ where we parked.  We walked a few blocks to Central Park and as you can see the weather was perfect!



This is Belvedere Castle next to Turtle Pond

The aforementioned Turtle Pond

It was too late to head into the Museum of Natural History and it was under construction anyway.

We thought this was the building from Ghostbusters but it turns out we were a few blocks off.  Still a cool looking building.


We headed back through the subway system to Hoboken and found our spot to watch the fireworks over the Hudson.  Here's a great sunset picture and if you look close, you can see a blimp flying overhead.  We actually saw another one the next day with a different sponsor.

During the show, my coworker Brian and his girlfriend who he had brought on the trip wandered a little ways away.  When we met up with them after the show, she had a brand new engagement ring to show off.  Congratulations to the happy couple!

Father's Day Mariner Game

Since we attended a Ms game for Mother's day it only seemed appropriate to attend one for Father's day!  Colby's Uncle Randy and Aunt Shelley gave us tickets to the Ms for Christmas.  They also gave Ken and Sydnie the same thing so we could all go together.

As you can see the season seats are really close

Dustin Ackley was called up the night before so this was his first time at bat in the big show!  It was awesome to see the fans go crazy and cheer for him!  My pregnant hormones got the best of me and I teared up thinking of how proud his family must be!

Root sports reporter in our section!  Chatting it up with fans.

The moose even stopped by for a visit!

Only group shot we got.  I was trying to protect the chin from the double look since the camera was inches from my face :)

Showing the score after the 7th inning stretch!

It was a great night for M's fans!!
