Over the weekend I had the privilege of taking a trip to NYC. We had a great time with my mother and father in law and my husband’s brother and wife. Here are some of our memorable weekend highlights.
I hadnt visited the 9/11 museum at all, so I was happy to finally get the chance. It was incredibly sad reliving the events of that day. Seeing the debris in person and learning about the devastation from those who were there was heartbreaking. However, I thought the museum did a wonderful job honoring each and every life that was lost that day. I’d highly recommend this place to anyone in the NYC area looking for something to do.
Outside are the memorials with each person’s name on it who lost their life. The water structure is peaceful and beautiful. The serene beauty of it was a perfect way to remember the lives that were lost. I found a family member’s name and it was neat to visit it in person.
Gluten Free Dinner Options:
We went to a delicious Italian restaurant for dinner that had GF pasta options! I ended up with this delicious shrimp pasta. The sauce was olive oil, oregano, roasted cherry tomatoes, and garlic. The pasta texture was amazing!
While my sister-in-law was waiting for her start time in the NYC marathon, we had several hours to kill before we’d see her. We decided to walk down to the waterfront and I’m so glad we did. The weather was clear and bright and the walkway was so nice. We got some nice shots of the city and water and enjoyed the sunny weather.
It was so cool to watch all of the runners in the NYC marathon. So many inspiring stories and impressive athletes. This was my first time watching a marathon in person and I had a lot of fun. Best sign? “If Trump can run, so can you!” If that isn’t motivation to run, I don’t know what is haha!
I liked hearing the spectators cheer on words of encouragement to the runners as they passed. It made me remember that there are good people still out there. Also, a huge congratulations to my sister-in-law for finishing this marathon and doing amazing! I’m so happy we were there to celebrate with you!
