Back in the Fort

It has been a while since the last post. My apologies! We were in New York City last week. I had to go for a conference for work and it was Mike's Spring Break so he got to came along too. We really had a good time.

We got there on Friday the 14th and took off walking around down to Times Square. Saturday we took a Gray Line tour of the downtown loop. It was on a double decker bus that was covered. We took the entire loop and the hopped off at Battery Park. We got to see the Statue of Liberty and Ground Zero and all the stuff down around there. I didn't last very long on Saturday so we got back on the bus and took the rest of the loop and got off at Rockefeller Center. We walked around there and walked up on the live recording of 30 Rock and saw Tina Fey. If only we watched the show . . . but that was neat to be around there. Watch for us in the crowds, you never know. I don't know how they get anything done with so many people around. That night we got our food from the cart outside our hotel that Ashlee and I discovered the first time we went to NYC for the conference. There is always a line and it is really good. Sunday we went to St. Patrick's Cathedral for Palm Sunday Mass. It was very nice. That afternoon we spent with a brother of a coworker of mine who is a professor at a university there. We walked down 5th Avenue and then halfway through Central Park to the Boathouse for coffee (cocoa) and then to the West Side to an Indian Restaurant. He was a really great tour guide.

Need to stop now, more to come on the New York City trip.
