countdown to new york!!!

i can't believe i haven't talked about this at all! for the past year i 've been planning a trip to new york for blake's birthday. he turns the big double digits next month (the is the big 1-0 for all everyone i just lost when i said double digits), and with this being the last season that the yankees will play at historic yankee stadium before it gets torn down (don't get me started on that one!!!!!!!!!!) i figured it was the perfect trip!!!!

we're going to a yankee game (thanks to our awesome friends who will be playing on the opposing team, we're going to have kick ass seats), central park, the statue of liberty, fao schwartz, the museum of natural history, the empire state building, times square, and wherever blake thinks he needs to go while we're there! i am SO excited to be able to take him there. i am SO excited that he will get to see a game at the real yankee stadium. all that history. it's legendary. and he gets to see it before it's gone.

say it with me, i am the coolest mom. :)

ps- what is your most memorable birthday? does one stand out over all the rest?

pss- i'm an idiot and forgot the best part.. IT'S A SURPRISE!!!! blake doesn't know and we're not telling him until we get on the plane and head off! isn't that even more awesome???

WOW, that is very cool! I have only been to NYC once and did not get to do/see anything! I was there as a nanny type and the lady I was working for only wanted to sit in central park and let the kids play. I was still excited just to be there, but it was kind of a let down.

what a great surprise... you are the coolest mom!

we were there over the holidays and the kids had a blast... it's such a fun city!

Jenna said...

What an incredible surprise for him! I can't wait until my kids get old enough and I can do something like that for them...but, omg, how have you NOT said anything to him? I would think that would be the hardest part!

Denise said...

Will you be my Mother? I want to go the The Natural History Museum! You ARE the best Mom ever! My 23rd birthday was my one and only surprise party, it was awesome, I had no idea.

RWA said...

Huh? Not telling him until you're on the plane and taking off?

I have a feeling he'll be able to read the sign at the gate counter that says, "NEW YORK."

Sounds like a great trip, though. I bet y'all will have a blast.

Andie said...

my most memorable birthday has to be my 30th... because I had a KICK ASS party. LOL

before then, I really don't know. Maybe my 23rd? I was on spring break my senior year of college. My sorority sisters paid a male stripper to give me a lapdance. LOL

How about Rockefeller Center, China Town, and the Bronx Zoo?

My best birthday weekend ever was when I turned 18 and two friends "abducted" me and brought to her grandmother's little cabin in the woods where we hiked all day and made good food all evening to eat by the fire.
