Happy first day of Spring. Winter is going out like a lion this time around!
We are back from our NYC trip. This one did not go as planned but it was so special. First off my brother and my nephew from Trinidad- the one who likes me to call him 'sugar plum'- decided to surprise us with a visit. And then Mother Nature decided that it was the perfect time for a blizzard. So scratch our carefully laid plans to go shopping and head to the American Girl store in the city but a good time ensued nonetheless.
We flew out of Buffalo this time around and headed to Target first off because #priorities
Our flight was delayed so we hit up a little PF Changs before heading to the airport for a little warmth on a ridiculously cold day.
The girls were wonderful on the flight-- remember they're used to long 5 hour flights so an hour was nothing.
We were so surprised to see my brother and my nephew. We meaning me. A was half asleep and C was oblivious. C said that I acted like a saw a celebrity.
The next morning we headed to breakfast and my other brother and other nephew, my sweet Dhilan joined us.
I always forget how large American diner portions are. We could have gotten away with ordering 2/3 of the food.
We had lots of sleepovers, family visits , ice cream (my mom bought no less than 5 different types) and freshly made bread.
Ice cream on blizzard day no less.
My cousin and C did tie dye for all the kids and here they are sporting their spoils.
Ice covered the snow but we headed out anyways to have a
snow ice ball fight.
We headed out after to the mall and build a bear to cure our cabin fever and to purchase a few unnecessary items
A couple aunts and cousins came to visit us the night before we left. We enjoyed takeout, adult beverages and conversations that only family can have. I went to bed at 5 am.
(A took this wonderful shot).
My kids did not have their fruit and veggie intake for the week so smoothies for lunch.
Oh and this was my car when I came back to Buffalo.
Back to school tomorrow. Mama got an awful flu from her sugar plum nephew and a bad neck pain-- not from her nephew but what a wonderful time we had.
Linking up with Biana for weekending.
