In-Laws and Out-Laws

Shawn's parents came to visit this last weekend. We celebrated Steve's birthday and partied down. Their train arrived Friday around 2 p.m., and then:
  • Friday evening, Times Square and 39 Steps on Broadway - funny, tongue-in-cheek show w/ 4 actors, with three playing MULTIPLE roles, sometimes at the same time. Very clever and entertaining ... lots of Alfred Hitchcock references.
  • Saturday - breakfast at home, picnic lunch at Liberty Island ... Statue of Liberty provided our shade (well, the trees around her base did). We also walked all over Ellis Island, and I saw some parts of that museum that I missed the last time I was there. Dinner at Silver Spur diner - not so great.
  • Sunday - breakfast at home, train to Bronx Zoo. QUITE an ordeal to get there, of course because of the subway schedules. Jeez-a-roni. Lunch there and saw loads of animals. I think my favorite was the elephant. Pork chops at home for dinner. So yummy.
  • Monday - I stayed here and worked, Shawn and co. went to Coney Island and the aquarium. Nathan's hot dogs! We had supper at Patsy's ... authentic NYC pizza? Was pretty tasty and we had a fruit "dump" cake for dinner. (Notice the pattern of FOOD? Such is life.)
Their train left today around 2 p.m., and they will be on the train until LATE tonight. It was a great trip, and I'm so lucky to have such amazing in-laws. More photos will be uploaded to Flickr.
