Where Have We Been?

the first 40 years of childhood are always the hardest...


Happy (belated) Easter everyone! The Easter bunny came and visited us all the way here in NYC and even hid our Easter baskets. We really got into the Easter season by dying our own Easter eggs as well.






(can you guess which one is my favorite??)

After, Mike and I headed to Manhattan to see all the Easter bonnets in the Easter parade. 





The weather was so beautiful, we wandered around Central Park and got some park hot dogs before making our own Easter dinner at home.

After a four month process, we finally closed Little Mermaid, but before we had our final show, we recorded the original off Broadway recording of our show! It was a long, tedious process, but one that I will always remember. 





My mom and sister were able to come to one of our school shows before we closed. The rest of the shows that weekend went really well as well. I said see ya later to my mer family and my off Broadway debut, and was a little sad to part ways, but it's nice to have some free weekend time again.


My mom and Hilary (sister) arrived on Tuesday mid day, and our first night of sightseeing started with a flop. We had received free tickets for the 9/11 memorial museum and we got there too late to use them, so instead we wandered around the outside memorial fountain and the Oculus and tried Baked by Melissa cupcakes before watching the sunset at the Brooklyn Bridge Park.




NYC


We headed home early that night, because the next morning we had a veryyyyy early morning ahead of us to get up and claim our Good Morning America taping tickets.

hey Robin!

The taping was very similar to the Stephen Colbert taping where they encourage lots of over-enthused clapping, laughing, and cheering. It was a long hour of fake smiling and laughter, but we also had a segment where we were on the air quite a bit! (link below)

After the taping, we checked out Times Square and the Hershey Store and all the must sees in that area, including banana pudding from Magnolia Bakery.



The rest of the day was some adventuring closer to home, exploring a bit of Prospect Park and a cookout at home.



We got to do so many touristy things while they were here that I really enjoy doing, such as  Chelsea Market, the Highline, Chinatown/ Little Italy (including bubble waffles), walking the Brooklyn Bridge, and a visit to Times Square at night, when it is all aglow.

cookie Do!




dinner at Virgil's BBQ

Our last day together I had a show and wouldn't see them after, so we made an early adventure to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens to see the Japanese Cherry Blossoms. 









The worst part about having visitors is having to say goodbye ): but hoping to not have too much time in between our visits! I am so glad they got to come visit and they are very much missed now!


In other news, things have been very busy around here. I have literally been working with Kids Club nonstop and currently waiting on hearing back from a few national tours (fingers crossed!). I realized the other day it has been almost a year since I left Hong Kong for the second time and can't even believe it, although I can't decide if it feels like weeks ago I was just there or years. Either way, I am so excited to reunite with some of my friends in London when Mike and I go on our trip in about a month and a half!! Really in need of a vacation at this point, mostly because I think I have constantly been sick since we moved and I am so over it, alas, spring is in the air and I am hoping with it comes good things for all!
