Aunt Meghan comes for a visit

A few weeks back one of our favorite Aunties came out for a visit. Aunt Meghan came out to the big city to visit her 2 favorite nephews, one of her favorite brothers and a sister-in-law that talks too much but that she still loves :0) We took her around as much of the city as we could but in the end we could not convert her to the New York way of life.

One Saturday the fam went to the super cool Lego store in Rockefeller Center and the boys had a blast. What you see above is pretty much what Memphis likes to do with his lego guys at home.

The boys could honestly stay at this store for 2 hours just rearranging body parts and accessories. The best thing about this store is that it has a beautiful view of the Rockefeller Center ice skating rink. I can't wait to take the kids here in another month when the Christmas Tree goes up.

Memphis knows how to fight back so watch out.

Stone slide in Central Park.

Sean took Meghan out one night without the kids and they had a blast. Sometimes you just have to experience New York City without all the strollers and extra luggage that comes with kids ya know. But in this shot Meghan was excited about Phantom of the Opera and wanted to take a picture under the billboard and without her knowing, this mystery guy steps right behind her and makes this pose. Sean is the one taking the picture and grins a little bit but takes the shot and doesn't say a word to Meghan. The mystery guy walks away unnoticed by Meghan. Sean hands the camera back to her and she scans through the pictures to check the shot. When she comes across this picture she does a very loud "Oh My Gosh" the mystery guy totally hears it and starts cracking up as does Sean. Sean says it was like Meghan felt violated because the whole time she didn't even sense that someone was behind her. Oh man I love this story. I need to print this picture out and frame for a good laugh every now and then.

This is our very own Naked Cowboy. He struts his stuff in Time Square and I'm thinking he has to be pretty rich don't you think? I mean this is what he does day in and day out and he can still afford to live in this expensive city. Maybe its time I ask Sean to put those dreams of Medical school aside and see about getting him some more guitar lessons.

The yellow guys my favorite too. M&M store in Time Square.

While Merrick was at school every day Meghan spent her days taking pictures of Memphis. I can't complain because she got some very cute shots of him being happy as usual.

We love you Meghan. Good Luck in Oregon. We miss you already.
