Time for Part 2 of our Memorial Day Weekend series! This one will cover our actual Memorial Day. When we left off in my last post, it was Sunday night. We had spent all day on Sunday preparing for my sister Heather's visit.
Our Sunday evening got started with another amazing view out of our living room window. Look at that sky! It's purple! Have you ever seen a purple sky like that? Also, the Empire State Building is lit up red, white and blue.
After the movie we went back to Rick's apartment, drank some wine, and chatted for a while. Eric and I finally made it back home and to bed at 4:00 a.m.! Can you believe it? We're never up that late anymore. It was like we were in college all over again.
Unfortunately, our bedtime might have been college-like, but our wake-up time was still grown-up-like. We were awake by 9:15. Yawn. We just hung out and waited for Heather and Rick to call. They ended up coming over to our apartment around 1:30 p.m.
how you're spending it outside, so long as you are outside, you know? So, this time across the Brooklyn Bridge was very special - it was the first time we ever did it in sunshine. Wow. Plus, of course, it was nice to do it all with Heather and Rick.
We did the whole Grimaldi's pizza thing first. This time we were not so lucky with the line. We waited in line for about an hour. But it was oh, so worth it.
"Avenue Q" was great! Eric and I have been wanting to see it since we moved here, because we heard it is just hilarious. And it was. In case you are not familiar with it, it's sort of a Sesame-Street-for-grownups type show. They use muppets, but the subject matter is not exactly child-friendly. Our jaws dropped multiple times at some of the things they said and did! One of the most notable songs was "Everyone's A Little Bit Racist," if that gives you an idea. I also really liked the "I Wish I Could Go Back to College" song. It was oh, so true.
We had so much fun with Heather and Rick! Hopefully we can do it again soon. And, as expected, our Memorial Day this year was very different than last year, but it was still very fun. It was a good day!
Next up on my posting agenda: my encounter with an American Idol!
