Happy Canada Day!
What a great day yesterday was! I decided to train it into Manhattan to visit the box office in person and purchase tickets for Aladdin, the newest Disney show on Broadway. While I got tickets for the day and time we wanted, we had to settle for three seats down the row from the rest. That's okay. As long as we are all coming and going together and watching it at the same time, it will be a blast! I had decided to make it a Mommy & Kelsey day, so together we traipsed around the city, up and down Broadway and 7th Avenue. After securing the play tickets, we headed over to Toys R Us in Times Square. We took a ferris wheel ride - one of the attractions of this super sized toy store and then made our way through the Candyland section, Wonka World and Barbie display! Couldn't resist purchasing some candy and strolled around the store a bit more before heading back to Penn Station, where we grabbed some lunch for the ride home. It was a fun five hours and it was nice to spend some quality time with my littlest!
I've come to love Tuesdays since starting Travelin' Cousins since it's the day Tanya and I get to update you on our progress on upcoming trips. Our New Mexico Road Trip is almost completely finalized! Going forward on our New Mexico Road Trip Blog, we will spend time chatting and going into detail about the various sites and attractions on our itinerary. Today, in Part 8, it's all about Balloon Fiesta, the inspiration for putting this trip together in the first place!
It also happens to be Canada Day! This is the day that Canadians celebrate the day the British North America Act created the Canadian federal government on July 1, 1867. In honor of our neighbors to the north, I thought I would share The 9 Best Places to visit in Canada as well as the Top 20 Canadian Slang Words for some laughs, eh?
You ain't Never had a Friend like Me!
Today I have to finalize our July 4th menu for tomorrow's run around and shop for it all day! This year the kids will be performing with the International Peace Choir at a huge July 4th celebration, and it will be Cosette inaugural day as the Ambassador of Italy!
Every Monday night the kids have choir rehearsal, and last night I had a travel meeting regarding the IPC heading to Orlando for America Sings next February. Well, my own personal feelings about this trip is that it is going to go BUST! The membership is not going to be given the opportunity to hear about the travel package that would save them 33% off of the price that they are going to be offered. What ever happened to doing what's best for the group? Next Monday night at our associates meeting, it should be determined one way or another. We shall see..
Wishing a wonderful Canada Day to our neighbors to the north! Check out the link that Elisa has about the 9 best places to visit is Canada. I've been to 7 of the 9, with Ottawa, and Hailfax to go. Canada is a beautiful country and I always have an excellent time during every visit! Next visit is listed on the Upcoming Trips link for us to go to the Quebec Winter Carnival in February 2015.
I'd like to touch base on a wee little error that took place with our site yesterday (it most likely only effected our email subscribers). We want to apologize for Mondays Daily not properly being posted and you most likely receiving Sundays Daily on Monday! Ugh - a bit of a headache when we realized.
If you are curious about yesterday then click here and you'll be all caught up. Hopefully you have been following along with us on the Daily, and if not then what is taking you so long? Subscribe to Travelin Cousins and get our blog delivered directly to your inbox! Pretty cool stuff!
So very glad that 10 of us cousins will be going to see Aladdin on Broadway! The kids should all have an absolute blast and we will all have memories from this night to last us a lifetime!
Have a Terrific Travelin Tuesday!
