We had a blast in DC this weekend and as we are popping popcorn getting ready to watch the debate tonight I can’t help but feel grateful we had this experience this weekend. It was great to ‘get back to our roots’ and get some feeling for what our nation is founded on. I’ll be honest, I’m hoping this debate tonight is as entertaining as I think it’s going to be. I can’t wait!
Some highlights –
- We saw a bunch of the museums and memorials
- Played with our adorable nieces – Gabby, Rozzie and Coco 🙂
- Dallin went to a BYU game
- I went to the Peeps store with my Aunt Bunny (highlight of my trip)
- I went to the Opera at the Nationals stadium, and LOVED it
I made a quick video to help remember the fun forever! Enjoy!! Stay tuned for pics to come.
Dallin plays soccer each week at Pier 5 in Brooklyn Bridge Park. It’s probably my favorite place to hangout in Brooklyn. I love the view of Manhattan, the breeze from the East River and the epic people watching! If you’re in New York, this park is a must!
Dallin and I went for a date night at the Brooklyn Heights Promenade this week. We decided to have a chat and film it (see below). It’s super shaky because we were getting in some steps 🙂 We are loving living in New York so far and can’t wait to explore more of this amazing city!
I do have a moment I would like to share about doing laundry. I have dreaded this moment from the time moving to NYC was a tiny idea seed in our brains. Soooooo I went to do some laundry at the nearest laundromat the other day and for some reason I couldn’t get the machine to accept my quarters. The owner saw me struggling and yelled across the store, ‘You need 8 quarter’. So I counted my quarters… again. I HAD 8 QUARTERS!! I couldn’t figure out why it wasn’t working and I’m sure I looked like a crazy person just trying to shove my quarters into the machine. Finally, the owner was so sick of me making a fool of my self that she ran over, yes she ran over, and pointed yelling, ‘THIS NOT QUARTER!! YOU SO DUMB!!’ So I pulled out the ‘quarter’ she was pointing at to find a dollar piece from Nicaragua. ??????? I have no idea.
