Ryan and I snuck away this weekend...

we flew first class for the first time for both of us,

and we had a BLAST in New York City...

We stayed a block away from Times Square

and we saw The Lion King

on Broadway- it was amazing!

We took taxis (which Oklahoma does not have many of!)
{snuck in a business meeting}
walked through SOHO
Little Italy

walked down Wall Street
sat in the Trinity Church
got lost
rode the Subway
checked the maps (iphones came in very handy)

slept in late
climbed to the top of the Empire State Building
rode bikes through Central Park
ate NY style pizza and shared a canoli

We soaked it in
had alot of fun
got lost in the hustle and bustle
and realized -

we are not big city folk at heart :)

But it was fun for a weekend!

Thanks for a fabulous belated birthday gift Ryan!

Sounds like you had alot of fun. Great photos. I would love to visit NYC but being in Australia it could be a little to expensive.
