Last vacation before the unknown

Todd and I had been trying to get pregnant for a year. I had not been told about my endometriosis at this time, but we were pretty much on edge. We wanted to get pregnant so bad. I had heard all the stories of people getting pregnant on vacations. I was so hoping this would be the case for us. Of course it wasn't, but I wish could go back in time to tell myself and Todd to enjoy this trip to the will get pregnant and have kids. It may not be easy, but it will happen! Maybe our tempers wouldn't have been so short, maybe we would have realize this would be our last big vacation until the kids are old enough to take, maybe just maybe we would have relaxed!

If you really look hard into our eyes to these pictures. You will see fear, worry, hurt, anger, defeat, but foremost the love we have for each other! We wanted and needed to share it.

The rest is history! :)

Time square was amazing! We saw our first broadway show Sweet Charity starring Christina Applegate..loved it!!

So happy I experienced the Macy Thanksgiving Parade in person! It was beyond freezing, but an experience of a lifetime.

We happened to go the same year Oklahoma had a float for the centennial.

I love that I can say I have been this close the Miss Liberty! I can't wait to take Molly and Luke to see her. I wonder what age would be a good age to take them. I know not for awhile, but not sure when. Any ideas?

I think they would love the Museum of Natural History that takes days to go through. Todd and I only had time for half a day, but still enjoyed it.

I am so very blessed (and love) that my life now revolves around these 2 little ones! My life has totally changed, but if you ask me it doesn't get any better than this!

New York really is an incredible vacation. I was there 10 years ago when I had the opportunity to dance in the Macy's Parade. I'll never forget seeing my first broadway show or the Statue of Liberty either. :)

Hubby and I were in NYC in 2006. We'd already begun some entry-level IF treatments...I was still in a pretty hopeful mood, and relatively not stressed. :) I was feeling really lucky about our opportunity that particular month for some reason, and I had this whole idea about how cool it would be to conceive a baby in NYC. HA! Didn't happen...but we still LOVE the city.

I was just telling a girlfriend yesterday how I'm CRAVING a trip somewhere. I am really looking forward to taking the girls to some of our favorite places one day, NYC being high on the list. :)

I am so jealous that you saw the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in person! That is a big dream of mine, and I still plan to make it happen some day.

We're only about 4 hours from NYC, and I'm so looking forward to taking the kids some day. T and I used to go once or twice a year, just to see a show and take in the sights and sounds and flavors. I miss it. But I know it will be so magical when we take our kids to experience NYC for the first time. Not sure what age that will be, but hopefully within the next 5 years.

I'm so glad your story has a very happy ending. You and Todd really are such amazing parents. Molly and Luke should feel just as blessed to have you as you do to have them.
