Mother's Day Weekend

A few weeks ago my Dad sent me an e-mail titled "Mother's Day shshshshshsh!" He wanted to surprise my mom and fly my family up to NYC for the weekend. Who can turn down a free trip, right?? So on Friday afternoon we hopped on a plane. When we got close to the apartment we texted Abby (who was in on it), and she came downstairs "to meet her friend for dinner," aka help us upstairs with our luggage. :-) We got upstairs and Abby went in to the apartment, saying "I forgot my Metro Card..." and Amelia and Andrew followed...and BOY was Mom surprised! She said "what are you doing here???" It was great fun to surprise her and she was so happy. Good planning, Dad, and thanks for having us! We had really nice (although windy) weather all weekend, hooray! On Friday night we had AWESOME BBQ at Daisy Mae's; Saturday, Mom, Abby and I had pedicures, then met the kids, Dad and Bryan in Central Park to enjoy the carousel, a playground, and to visit "the rock" where Bryan proposed to me. Sunday we enjoyed a fantastic service at church, then were treated to brunch at Bar Americain, one of Bobby Flay's restaurants. It was SO good! All in all it was a great Mother's Day and really nice to be able to spend it with my mom. Here are some pictures of the weekend!
