We LOVE visitors. This past week we had 4 amazing visitors come and stay with us all the way from UTAH! The Sealy's and the Lund's. They arrived to our apt late Thursday night and we were so very excited to show them our apt and around the city we call home! Eric and I choose a cool city to live in and they book their tickets to visit! Check out where they visited us last year in previous posts.http://shaylyanderic.blogspot.com/2011/03/paris-city-of-love.html
I got off work at 3 on Friday and met up with them to go on the Staten Island Ferry
We then met up with Eric when he got off work and went to yummy Grimaldi's
Rocking his new China town sun glasses
My new Coach bag!! Had to be very sneaky to get this bag! Following a man with a bluetooth in his ear to a little store, went to the back where the wall opened up and we squeezed into this small room full of name brand cute bags! They were wanting $70 for the bag and we talked him down to $40 thanks to Chez! A very fun experience and I would recommend it to everyone:)
Little India (Trevor went on his mission to India and was loving it here)
We went to the championship Dyckman street ball tournament! It was a very cool experience. We were literally the only white people in the stands. People were eyeballing us for sure! The players played so intense. Their foul would be one of our technicals.
In our free Dyckman shirts
Loving the Doughnuts from NYC Doughnut Plant
The High Line
Adam and Bree live in Boston and they met up with us in NYC for the day
Eric had heard that there was free kayaking on the Hudson River, so we went down to check it out and had a blast kayaking with a view of the city
Then some MORE PIZZA at John's Pizzeria
Then a stroll through the park and Adam stopped to play chess with "Legendary Cornbread"
The bird man and bird woman....Kinda made me a little sick...They were all around them, on their bodies and just chillin on his head...The things you see in NYC:)
NY Yankees vs Boston Red Sox
4 Red Sox fans and 4 Yankees fans

Niki LOVES frozen hot chocolate and has wanted to go to Serendipity since she was like 10! So on the way home from the game we stopped in and it was very Yummy!
It was a tight squeeze in our one bedroom apartment with 4 guests, but it was WELL worth it! We just love the Sealy's and the Lund's so much. We had so much fun hanging out with them and Eric LOVED being the tour guide with little bits of information for everything!
