Road trip - Christmas edition

Sunday, 24 December 2006 05:01

They hate surprises!

For Christmas this year the boys (Scott, Steve and Tom) got together to plan a little surprise for the girls (Brenda, Becky and Alyssa.) So on the Morning of the 22nd of Dec we all hit the road. Becky, Steve, Brenda and Scott headed down the thruway, the girls not knowing anything about the destination. Tom and Alyssa hopped on route 84 heading west, Alyssa completely in the dark as well. We all arrived at the Beacon train station at around the same time. That was the first surprise when Alyssa, Becky and Brenda realized we were all headed to NYC together.

We arrived at Grand Central Station around 12:30 and walked over to Time Square to have lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe.

From there we headed up towards Central Park. We stopped at Mickey Mantle's for a quick look around and a drink before taking a horse drawn carriage ride through the park.

From the park we headed up 5th Avenue stopping at Tiffany's on the way to Rockefeller Plaza to see the tree, and the light show at Sach's. On the way we passed St Patrick's Cathedral, and all the Christmas window displays.

You can't help but be in awe of the city. There is no better place to be around the holiday.

After the light show we headed to dinner at a restaurant called Tuscan Square. The food was fantastic, the wine was wonderful, and the atmosphere was perfect. Steve was inspired to stand up and toast the entire restaurant wishing everyone there a merry Christmas.

Following dinner we headed back down 5th to F.A.O. Schwartz to look around a bit. That place is every kids (young and old) dream. We saw some huge stuffed animals, life sized Darth Vader and Santa made out of Legos, etc.

To cap the day we headed back up to Radio City to see the Christmas Spectacular. Aside from some rain at the end of the night, it was a pretty good day. We made it home by 3:00 am, and hopefully we'll get a little extra sleep this weekend to catch up.

I think the boys did good, and we somehow managed to keep everything mostly a secret. The girls were all upset that we kept everything a surprise, but I think they will get over it. As Always, you can click any of the images to see larger pictures, or go to the Gallery to see them all.

Merry Christmas.

Don't know why I have a Bob Marley song rolling around in my head when I see these pics, but it's there. It was great to see the cousins last week, and nice that we all were able to spend some time with Aunt Clo. We definitely need to get together more often.


Well, I guess it's winter

It was bound to happen sooner or later. It's actually a couple of weeks later than normal this year. The first ice is on the lake. I guess that means it's winter. This year seemed to jsut fly by. I suppose we are just getting old.

Here is a picture captured Dec 8th from the tuppercam. It's time to break out the skis or snowboard.

Life's still to short to drink cheap wine!

So just a quick update on wine weekend '06. I have uploaded some more photos from Becky and Steve. I guess we needed more evidence that we had a great time, and perhaps had a little too much to drink. But as always it's proof that time with friends are always good. Tom said it best... "If we keep this up eventually we will all end up in a Mexican prison together." It's time to start planning Wine Weekend III, and Road Trip III.
