Start spreadin' the news. . . . .


So it's been awhile since we've posted anything on the old blog, but not a whole heckuva lot had been going on with the Stewarts. (Actually, Hunter and Bree have been pretty busy, but you'll have to check out Bree's blog to see what they're up to these days) Rich and I recently took a trip to. . . you guessed it. . . New York! One of my favorite places on the planet :) We met my mom and her husband, Wayne - who had never been there before- and crammed all kinds of fun into a long weekend. This picture is the view from our awesome hotel room smack dab inthe middle of Times Square.

We happened to find this restaurant where they filmed Seinfeld and decided we had to eat there. Once inside, we realized they only used the outside for the show. The inside was way smaller and looked nothing like the inside of the restaurant on the show.

Of course, this is my main reason for going to New York City- to see the EXCELLENT theatre!! We went to a show every night we were there, plus a spur of the moment matinee. Besides this show, we saw Mary Poppins, Promises, Promises, and Billy Elliot.

Here we are at the Top of the Rock observation deck. You can see Central Park in the background. This was a really cool view of the whole island. We also made it to the Statue of Liberty and a two day double decker bus tour all over the city. We were able to see quite a bit during our short stay. I'm already wanting to go back :)

I just went to NYC in Sept with my friend. It was SO MUCH FUN! We saw Promises, Promises and Wicked. I went to see Kristin Chenowith and found that Sean Hayes STOLE the show. I just booked a condo at Pelican Beach for the week of Thanksgiving. Actually we're staying at The Terrace because we'll have 8 people in our group. Caleb's sister and her husband are driving down from NC to meet us there. We're really excited. Looking forward to seeing you all there. Tell the Nelson's they need to come too!
