NYC

This was the most anticipated trip of the year for us.
I couldn't wait to share in all the celebration that Beas wedding was sure to be. Your Dad couldn't wait to take out his new Cannon for a ride and you couldn't wait to walk down the aisle as part of the wedding party.
The wedding was like straight out of a fairy tale. Simply magical!
The bride and groom were both as happy as can be. 

The lovely flower girls and the proud grandparents, who by the way look AMAZING in theirs 90s!

Then there was the reception. Great music. Great food. Great fun.

You threw down. Literally went for the split!

You had such a good time! 
When I asked you what your favorite part of the wedding was you replied: "The kiss mom, the kiss". 
Spoken like a true romantic.

Cant go to NYC and not stay for a bit of sightseeing 

The four of us walked most of Manhattan went to Rockefeller Center, The Village, Flatiron District, Soho, Little Italy, Grand Central Station, Washington Park, Bryant Park and of course Central Park and its zoo.

Visited the Natural History Museum and the Contemporary Museum of Art. You and I went for a showing of Cinderella on Broadway, which you loved! 
It was such a treat to witness the way you enjoyed the play. You could barely stay seated and by the end you were in the aisle dancing your heart away and clapping excitedly.

It was spring and we got to enjoy a lot of live music at the parks.  
This turned out to be a favorite activity for the four of us.



I took you to FAO Schwarz where you were allowed to pick one toy; you picked a very cool magic trick with light (bottom right pic). 

You girls also got to spend some time with Tita, Tio Andrew and Oli, as well as with the Abuelos who took Luci to the Pierre to meet the family one afternoon and took you to the American Girls store on 5th Ave where you picked out Bella Estrella. She has officially dethroned Pili who has been your favorite since you were 2 years old. 

My sweet Luci, you were such a trooper. We would stay out all day and you were cool as a cucumber, enjoying the sites and all the people you met along the way.
I foresee many trips in our future sweetheart.

Many people who love you, were anxious to meet you. Including your great grandparents, your great aunts Tia Tia and Tia Edna, your tia abuela Judy, Tia Pin and many others.
It was a veritable love fest!

Even our down time was filled with joy.
It was a fantastic trip. 

Today I am grateful for destination weddings, the love of family and great sights.
