My Family Visits NYC!

My parents, sister, aunt, uncle, and granny cane into town from PA/OH to come visit my husband and I. 

My mom told me that they wanted to visit a few places in Manhattan but when they arrived on Friday, everyone was super tired. So we ended up ordering food from an Italian restaurant up the street from my apartment. 

It was nice to be able to relax with them. We watched this movie called Central Intelligence starring Kevin Hart and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. It was hilarious!

Saturday, I took them to a popular shopping area in the South Bronx where there are a whole bunch of stores on 3rd Ave. My family loved it and bought so many things! I ended up buying a few things too! =)

Later that night, we had a pot luck dinner at my place and game night! My mom’s family is from NYC so her brothers and niece came out to join us for the night.

L to R: Baked Ziti by mom n law, Lemon Garlic Chicken and BBQ Bacon Chicken made by me, potato salad, and Pasta Salad made by my husband!
Back row L to R: Sweet Plantains, Spanish Rice, Spanish Rice, White Rice…Front Row L to R: Beef Stew, Chicken Stew, Potato Salad, Beans
 

My mother n law and a few of her family members joined us as well. 

We played this game called “Heads Up” which is super fun! We also played Jenga
which was harder than I thought because you need to have a steady hand when moving those blocks around!

Sunday morning, my family headed home.

It was so refreshing to have my family spending time together because it’s been a while since we’ve all gotten together. It was such a pleasure and can’t wait to do it again! I love my family =)

My family!
