Weekend Recap

We had a great, busy and fun filled weekend! We started Friday by finishing off some more Christmas shopping, still have a ton to do but baby's santa list is officially checked off!
Isn't he the cutest shopping buddy ever?

Friday night was our town's annual Holiday stroll, all the stores stay up late, Santa arrives on a fire truck and they light the tree in the town center. It is really festive and we are so lucky to be able to walk to the center of town from our house.
Big boy in the high chair for the first time!

We had dinner at one of our favorite restaurants in town first then walked over to the tree to meet some family, it was a great night!

My handsome boys!

Saturday we headed into NYC to leave baby overnight for the first time. My brother and his fiancé live in Brooklyn so we planned to drop baby and his gear off with them and then take the subway to our hotel in Manhattan. I was a nervous wreck but drop off went well and we headed over to our hotel.

We were staying at the JW Essex Hotel right on Central Park, we were so excited and thrilled because  we had used our rewards points to book the trip. 

Little did we know we had booked the upgrade not the room with out points. Well after some talking and a little extra spending we ended up in a massive suite over looking Central Park. The view and room made the anxiety of leaving baby overnight a whole look easier. Check it out!

We felt like very high rollers. We headed out to check the holiday decorations in the city and the tree! Then headed to a nice dinner. It was so fun to be out just the two of us, but we ended up talking about little man through out most of dinner! Oops!
