Noordas In New York - Memorial Day 2014

Hailey hits the Big Apple! I love this picture of her with a lollipop the size of her head. Our dear friends, the Noordas, came from Washington, D.C. to visit New York over Memorial Day. We were so excited to hang with them in our city! We visited FAO Schwartz, 5th Avenue, the High Line, and stopped for lunch at Chelsea Market. We hit up Los Tacos and got our favorite chocolate milk from Roonybrook. It was so much fun to have Julie and Kyle join in on the fun. Makall and Julie were some of my best friends in high school. Who would have thought when we graduated seven years ago, we would all end up so far from our hometown, yet so close together?! It was such a fun day in the city with them.

The next Sunday after church, we met the Noordas at the base of the Brooklyn Bridge for a sunset stroll. We enjoyed a Mr. Softee ice cream while waiting - nothing like a sprinkled cone to kick off the official start of summer! We called in our pizza orders at both Juliana's and Grimaldi's before walking the bridge and by the time we got there, our pizzas were ready. We picnicked in Brooklyn Bridge Park while overlooking Manhattan and watching the sun go down. I know people have strong opinions about these pizzas. After taste-tasting them both back to back, I gotta say I preferred Grimaldi's. This is such a New York outing for me.

We walked back and ended our night with dessert at the first Shake Shack in Madison Square Park. The Empire State Building was lit up in red, white, and blue. We just sat there on a bench talking for hours and I wished these friends lived here all the time. I love our conversations and watching them with their adorable kids. Hailey has always had a thing for Scott and I get the biggest kick out of watching them. We're so grateful for these good friends. Come back soon, Noordas!
