So we went to NY back at the end of August/beginning of September.  Our first stop was at Jason’s parent’s apartment.  We got there on Monday, August 31st and stayed through the morning of Friday, September 4th.  We had a really good time while we were there.  We stayed pretty busy – which is always nice… because honestly, who wants to spend their vacation sitting on the couch?  Not I! 🙂

On Tuesday we did just hang out, for the most part.  My mother-in-law did have to work so Jason and I took his dad and the kids to the restaurant formerly known as Nick Tahou’s.

This is a "Garbage Plate" from the restaurant formerly known as Nick Tahou's.  It includes macaroni salad and home friends (1/2 and 1/2 on the bottom), 2 cheeseburgers on top, their secret hot sauce (the chili lookin' sauce) and mustard. Yum.

That night, Jason’s parents blessed us with some time alone!  Jason and I went to get a couple of appetizers from TGI Fridays and then we went to see Julie and Julia.  I’m going to keep my opinions to myself about both. 😉

On Wednesday, we drove about 2 hours to Syracuse to enjoy the NY State Fair.  We really had such a great time!  The kiddos LOVE the state fair.  🙂  Also, I was greatly blessed by my In-Laws with a new Janome sewing machine!  I cannot even begin to express my gratitude!  Thank you so much!  Here are some pictures from the state fair! 🙂
