Tanner Takes NYC

Scott's younger brother, Tanner, came to visit us for a few days. He just finished up his sophomore year at BYU and wanted to do a little networking while he was out here. Tanner is so laid back and fun loving, he was such an easy guest. Scott and I had to work a few of the days he was here - but we partied hard to make up for it. 
T came to Wilson-Maddux Friday night date night at Co. in Chelsea. It was delicious and we will go back! Good find, Wilson's. After a dessert stop, Scott showed T his office. I'm still amazed that he stares at the Freedom Tower all day. That view never gets old. Wherever I am in this city, if I see Freedom Tower I feel oriented. It's my North Star. It's home to me. 

Saturday morning we slept in, went on a run, and then made our way to Yankee Stadium in the Bronx.  Nothing screams summer or America more to me than a baseball game. I feel like I grew up on a diamond. Between both my brother and I, almost every day after school was spent at the ballpark for games or practices. And considering Douglas coached us through Little League, it was a family affair. We even have a family goal to watch a game at every Major League Baseball park. For my senior trip after I graduated from high school, my dad took us to the original Yankee Stadium and to Fenway Park in Boston. Looking back, I'm so glad we got to see the original stadium, which is full of history, before they tore it down and built this new one. I'm convinced there's not a bad seat in the house. It's gorgeous. 

^^^Before we even sat down, I had garlic fries in my possession.^^^ 
 Game food at it's finest. 

The Yanks beat the Oakland A's 4-2. But I'm really missing Jeter. They brought in their iconic closer, Mariano Rivera, to finish the game. I remember my seventh grade self fearing that man during the 2001 World Series when the Yankees lost to the Arizona Diamondbacks in seven games. Still, it was neat to see him pitch in person before he retires at the end of the season.

We took the train back and got ready to see Newsies on Broadway that night. It's absolutely incredible. We finished the night off with dinner at one of our favorites, Cafeteria, in Chelsea. Tanner, we miss you! Thanks for giving us an added reason to party. 



  1. Visitors are the BEST! Looks like you made the most of his short trip!

  2. Newsies is on my bucket list! What a fun trip!
