New York City - again:)

Brunch at the Popover
American Girl Store
Saturday, October 1st, I got up bright and early and headed back to NYC!  My sister, Ardell, flew from Houston and met me at the airport in NYC.  We planned our arrival times to match closely so we could share a cab to Doug and Leigh Anne's.  We had a fun filled weeked!    Activities included a visit to the Guggenheim Museum and dinner Saturday night.  Doug and Leigh Anne's friend, Megan, was also in town and joined us.  Saturday we had brunch at the Popover Cafe and headed out to explore.  Ardell, Leigh Anne, and I paid a visit to the American Girl store-fun!!  In the past, I made a lot of doll clothes.  We met back up with Doug and walked through Greenwich Village and that area of the city.

Sunday night we headed to Brooklyn to have dinner with Drue, Andrew and Miriam.  Drue and I are still amazed we both have sons that are attorneys living in NYC.  Both are in the process of moving - Drue was in the city helping Andrew and Miriam pack for their move to California.  It was great fun but the restaurant was too dark for pictures.  We also saw a fireworks display when we were crossing the Brooklyn Bridge.

9/11 Museum
Monday morning Ardell and I headed to the 9/11 Memorial Site.  Tickets are really hard to get and you must make reservations weeks in advance.  We did visit the museum and church.  Ten years later it is still a very emotional place to visit.  Following our visit, we had lunch at Shake Shack, did some shopping,  saw our celebrity of the trip, and went back to the apartment to rest.
