Geff and Carol in the house: part 1

We were lucky enough to enjoy the company of Brett's parents for almost 2 weeks. They originally planned to come so that Brett and Geff could attend the U.S. Open (golf, not tennis) at Beth Page in Long Island. We convinced them to come early to hang out with Sadie while Rachael was out of town. We had SO much fun and Sadie saved up her new tricks to debut while they were here. Here's a sampling of what we did.

Sadie enjoyed many a nap in her stroller. She's a perfect urban baby - loves being out and about and can fall asleep through anything.

Saturday's stop: Castle Clinton followed by the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.

Waiting in line for tickets outside of Castle Clinton.(more statue pictures to come)

We surprised Geff with a birthday celebration at his first (and Sadie's first) Yankee game (and our first time in the new stadium).

Sadie was very into the game (she must take after her dad)...

and her grandpa.

I let Sadie try some of the not-so-reasonably priced, less-than-healthy stadium food (yes, what a great mom...go ahead, judge away). She loves her some french fry.

The Yankees won! After every game they play 'New York, New York' over the loud speakers. Geff and Carol were dancing and singing. We managed to catch a smile though.

It wouldn't be a true birthday without some of the famous fudge frosting. Beautiful (and tasty) job on the cake Carol. Happy Birthday Geff!

We introduced blueberries to the think she enjoyed them?

Sadie's Crib!

We've had the room finished for quite some time, but haven't managed to get the pictures posted. We live in what is called a railroad apartment with two entrances (one into our bedroom and one into the family room). Sadie's room is between our room and the hallway that leads to the rest of the apartment. Without further adieu, I give you Sadie's little room.
