On Saturday (8/28), we took the train into Grand Central Station for the day.
Our first stop was to the Cake Boss bakery and lo and behold, Buddy showed up!! What are the chances?!
Next stop was the Museum of Natural History. I wasn't too thrilled about this since I don't like museums in general and I have already been, but Josh had never so we went and made our suggested price upon entering and had fun wandering around. It was fun just being the two of us and that was a fun aspect...the only fun aspect ;) It was a beautiful day and I just couldn't wait to get to Central Park.

And now to Central Park! As you can tell it was a GORGEOUS day and I had never really been IN Central Park, just around it. We spent a couple hours walking around, snapping photos, got an ice cream and really enjoyed everything it had to offer.

Our journey led us out of the peaceful park into this... The hustle and bustle of the Big Apple.
We then headed down to the new World Trade Center and 9/11 Memorial. As I walked around I just couldn't believe what happened that dreadful day. I tried to imagine what the city looked like, full of smoke and people running around everywhere. It makes me so sad to think that every single name I saw on the memorial was a mother, father, brother, sister, friend, aunt, or uncle. So many people's lives were affected and forever will be. The memorial was beautiful and there were several people there to pay their respects.

Our day ended at Benjamen's Steak House. Josh received a dinner allowance to take me to dinner and that's where we picked. It was delicious. The meat just fell apart on our plate. It was a perfect day, just the two of us. Thanks Eve for watching Charlotte!
Up Next...trip to Boston!
