Mom in The City: Part V

Not too many days ago, my mom flew to visit us here in New York. Just as with any other visit she’s made, it’s hard to believe this one has already come and gone. Oh, but what a fun four days we had together though. We made sure not to make any plans for the weekend prior to her arrival, as we both knew no agenda meant absolutely no rushing.

Ice Skating & Holiday Markets

After three years of Christmases in New York, Derek and I finally made it to the Rockefeller Rink for ice skating before we left to come home for the holidays. Of course, when you think about ice skating in the city, your mind immediately shifts to thoughts of Rockefeller Plaza. I guess that’s why I was always so against the idea, since I knew it would be us and a million other people crammed together trying to skate on a rink that is much smaller in reality than it appears on tv.
