Way to go, Pete.

Yes, Pete has done it again.  He has raised the bar and left other husbands around him cursing his name.  He took me on a SURPRISE trip for my birthday to NEW YORK CITY! The day of my birthday (July 15) Pete arranged for family members to watch our kids for the long weekend & we packed bags and drove to the airport.  I had no idea where we were going until we got our tickets!  Needless to say, it was the BEST BIRTHDAY EVER.  Pete spent months planning for this and many gave to make it happen. Of course, you know we could never afford a trip like this but thanks to frequent flyer miles and the amazing generosity of my wonderful mother in law (& her friend, Allie, & her apartment!!), we were able to go. We ate great food, saw great shows (Wicked & Jersey Boys), and walked and walked and walked. It was a wonderful time to just be together without the children/responsibility. :-) I am so blessed and so thankful.  Here are a few pictures from our trip.
