Grace's Birthday Adventure

For her ninth birthday this year, Grace chose as her gift to go to New York City and see Matilda the Musical on Broadway! We made the plans months in advance and we were so excited to go on January 23rd.

Unfortunately, January 23rd was the day the big blizzard hit NYC!  What a day we had.  Poor Nanny's boots broke apart in the snow, and we arrived at the theater at 1pm to be told Broadway was closing for the day.  What a disappointment!

We were determined to make it back, so we planned a return trip for a few weeks later.  This time, it was torrential rain and strong winds!  We still had an awesome time and enjoyed the day despite being soaked!
We hunted for tasty cookies all over New York - Bouchon Bakery, Levain Bakery, Jacques Torres.  We watched Matilda from the sixth row!  Amazing show! And finished up with a delicious dinner at Carmine's.  Grace's 9th birthday was one to remember!
