Welcome to NYC!

Monday, March 18, 2024

We flew into NYC on Friday for Michael's wedding. The flight was pretty uneventful with some nice views coming into LaGuardia.

It didn't take long for us to grab our luggage and catch an Uber to the hotel. The Uber was the best choice. It only took 30 minutes to get to the hotel vs an hour on public transportation. We also had a nice view from the Kosciuszko Bridge. 

We dropped our luggage off, ran into Matt, Noah, Elizabeth and Jim and called another Uber to The Wicked Monk for the Rehearsal Dinner. I rode with Elizabeth and Jim and we got caught up on all life's events. It has been 4 years since we last saw them in Brussels.  The meal was delicious. Even though it was a Friday during Lent, Eric gave me "permission" to eat the Chicken Cordon Bleu and Steak. I got a really nice photo of the Morales family.

 It turned into a late night but I got some nice photos on the ride back to the Hotel.

Loons Home Opener 2024

Monday, March 4, 2024

Eric, Alec, Mike and I went to the Minnesota Loons Home Opener on Saturday. When I saw a March 2nd game, I thought it would be crazy cold. Well I didn't realized we would have a real warm winter and it was a beautiful sunny, 60 degrees!  I actually got hot. I like the new kit (aka jersey) so I got one. So did Mike and Alec. We all match now.  We left during stoppage time because the Loons were losing and Eric said the game was over...30 seconds after we walked out of the stadium...they scored. hahahahahaha. 

We jumped on the bus right away and were back to the car in now time. We met Linda, Kennedy, Josh and friends at the Mall of America. We walked around a bit and then went home and had Pizza Hut and watched Next Goal Wins movie. It was a good day. 

this is not the jersey I bought. just another option.
