We enjoyed the long weekend very much. We went to New York City on Saturday and Philadelphia on Monday. I was supposed to take a cake decorating class that started on Friday but I was the only person to sign up so the class got canceled. We decided to go to a drive-in movie instead of just sitting around. We went to a different theater this time and they had funnel cakes! I think Sam got two bites; I was so excited that I practically inhaled it (which is a bad idea with powdered sugar).
Some highlights of the day in NYC:
-I asked Libby the elevation of NYC.
-The awesome feeling in Yankee Stadium.
-The Yankees fans were not annoying! I guess they didn't have to be defensive since it was their house.
-We had perfect seats to the Yankees game and we were in the shade the whole game.
-Yankee Stadium was nice but the grass was the worst I've seen on an MLB field and it made me happy.
-I drove on the way there and I am very proud of myself for not dying in the city.
Some highlights of Independence Day:
-The National Anthem recording was having some problems and it kept repeating.
-A lady said, "Oooh, it looks like a star!"
-Kids were chanting, "Hit the plane" for each firework.
-Alex was more interested in playing with the empty baby food containers than watching the fireworks but would squint/flinch at the fireworks sometimes, too.
-The gold weeping willow fireworks with sparkles at the end were my favorite.
-I love the smell of fireworks.
Some highlights of the day in Philadelphia:
-At the zoo, a man lifted his son up to an exhibit and said, "This is a cactus." Had the child never seen cactus before?!
-The giant elephant shrew was my favorite. It could move its nose like a finger! It was so cute!
-We practically had the zoo to ourselves because it was about 100 degrees and 50% humidity (or something ridiculous like that). It was not a highlight that I had to sit down on the dirty sidewalk because I thought I was going to faint.
