Matt wrote about some fun things we did and now I am going to write about a few more. Ever since I saw the tram that goes to Roosevelt Island I have wanted to take a ride on it. So, One Sunday we did just that, up and over. Once we were across the East river, we caught a bus and rode around the Island. It is just across the river from our apartment so I see it just about every day when I run on the pathway. There is a light house there. It was interesting to be on the other side of the river and see our neighborhood so close and yet so far away: It took us an hour and half to get home when we were less than a quarter of a mile away...
I kept thinking there should be a foot bridge but so many tugboats pass through there, hence the tram. The ride back in the sky was cool because it was dark.
In fact, I thought the ride was so cool that I took my sister Cyrie to experience it when she came to the city for my birthday a week later!
While Cyrie was here we went to our first Broadway show-Legally Blond. I got to choose the show because it was my birthday (25th). I think Matt was thinking: "oh great, I get to spend all this money to see Legally Blond...?" But we ALL enjoyed the show very much. We were totally impressed and can't wait to go see another one. It was so much fun to have Cyrie her for 4 days, thanks Cyrie!!! Her and I also got to see the off Broadway production of Stomp (which was very entertaining), go to the top of the Rockefeller Center 69 floors up with a panoramic view, and shop...all while Matt studied and studied some more. Hard Core or Board to Death?
We like to play games with our friends from the ward we attend. Last time we played everyone had fun but me because I could not lay down the entire game. I have never experienced that in Rummikub before. I literally could not lay down and I have a picture to prove it!
We are working at trying not to be boring.
