A Trip to the City...sans kids!

The inside of our hotel.

I have to apologize, I did not carry my big camera. Just didn't want to lug it around with all the shopping bags that I was carrying. So we all have to make due with iphone pictures.

the '09 retirees

We had a relaxing two days away, although I think it was hard on my husband to be back amongst the people that he really admired. His old firm really does give out the perks! It is hard to give that up....but then again, he is spending much more time with his family and that's the best perk yet!

One of the highlights of our trip was hearing an ex-president speak. Are there rules for posting pictures? I'm not sure, so I won't write his name. He spoke for an hour and was quite interesting. Can you figure out who it was?

30 rock--oh, how I love that show!

We had a wonderful dinner with my sister at Becco. Nice little Italian spot on restaurant row. I give it two thumbs up!

The Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center

The boys survived and really did quite well with my mom. They knew we needed this time away so it was a win-win for everyone!

Back to the old grind and on to Christmas shopping. oh joy!

and what's a trip into the city without seeing the naked cowboy!

Wow! That looks like a fabulous trip away. And the naked cowboy? Well, that's just icing, right? ;)
