We wrapped things up in West Virginia.

After our fabulous time in New York, we got to spend the remaining 4 days of our vacation in West Virginia. We had a blast white water rafting, boating, touring a glass factory and just hanging out with everyone.

Grandpa and Tyler checking out some glass at the factory.

Getting ready to watch a glass blowing demo at Blinko Glass Factory. Tyler loved it!

Tyler got stuck in the baby swing after I told him not to get in it!

Love that face!

Matt finally got to wakeboard, and he couldn't have been happier!

New York!

To celebrate our anniversary this year we spent 5 days in New York visiting my sister-in-law, Marci. Our trip included a Yankee's game, roof top swimming, a picnic and movie at Bryant Park, a Broadway show, an afternoon at the Manhattan Temple, a stroll through Times Square, a stop in New Jersey and lots of good food! We had the best tour guide in town! It was so nice to get to spend some 'adult' time with you Marci! Thanks again for everything!

Matt and Marci, aren't they cute?

Ready to watch the Yankee's play on the 4th.

We had the best seats in the house, in the shade!

You can't go to a baseball game and not eat a hot dog!

Sometimes the subway can get a little crowded!

I know it's hard to tell, but they are siblings! :)

Picnic, Uno and a movie at Bryant Park. Great group of people!

Off for a day of sweets!

Our first stop was this cool candy shop owned by Ralph Lauren's daughter. Three stories of candy!

Then Marci introduced us to frozen hot chocolate at Serendipity. One word: Heavenly!

Best lunch ever!

Dinner at Capital Grill was AMAZING!

You know how you feel after a good Thanksgiving meal? Yeah, that's how we all felt!

There are a lot of good places to eat in New York. One afternoon we had lunch at Barbuto, owned by one of my favorite chef's Jonathan Waxman.

After lunch we spent some time at the Manhattan Temple.

Such a contrast to the busy, noisy city just outside!

Marci scored us some free tickets to see this on Broadway! Amazing show, thanks again Marci!

The theater was beautiful!

Pool at Peter Dillans.

Love him!

One of the best sister-in-laws ever!

I love the show 'Cake Boss' on TLC, so on our way home we stopped in Hoboken, NJ to pick up some sweet treats. We weren't the only ones with that idea!

It took us an hour and a half to get into the bakery, but it was well worth the wait! I would definitely be fat if we lived nearby!
