Some Enchanted Evening

Poop? What poop? At the pool? What pool? Kids? What kids?

I didn't have to wait for Mother's Day. My wedding anniversary celebration was better than Mother's Day. (Actually, I'm pretty sure it was better than the wedding day itself
...much better hair, at least.)
We left the kids and hopped a train to NYC. And, you know, sitting uninterrupted for an hour with my book and my Luna bar woulda been celebration enough.
(But let's just keep that our little secret, shall we?)

Next stop, the Manhattan temple. So peaceful. So lovely. So perfect.


Followed by dinner at Tavern on the Green in Central Park,
where we ate in the shade of this tree...

...and finished our meal with the quintessential New York dessert.

And the grand finale...

a Broadway musical!

Girls, you know your husband really loves you if he willingly forks over a small fortune to sit in the nosebleeds of the Lincoln Center for a stageful of singing sailors.

And, you know, there is really only ONE way to show him your appreciation...

chase him around, singing a medley of his favorite Rodgers & Hammerstein hits, of course!
(I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love with a wonderful guy...)

A trip into the city for dinner and a show AND your husband went willingly? What a lucky (aka blessed!) girl you are.

Holly said...

I love the phrase: left the kids, took a train to NYC, dinner at Tavern on the Green, a show...it all sounds so sophisticated, so NYC (so not me)--then the image of you chasing him around singing show tunes...how romantic.

I'm about to start that book--can't wait. What do you think?

Melissa-Mc said...

Sounds like a wonderful anniversary trip. You definitely deserved it!

Laurie said...

That sounds like an IDEAL date. Lucky!
