Livin' it up in the Big Apple!!!

Our day began with a leisurely run in Riverside Park

We then headed off to a game at the new Yankee Stadium. This was only the second game ever played in the stadium (the home opener was just the day before). The game was great. The Yankees came from behind to take the lead in the bottom of the 8th inning, then held on in the top of the 9th to secure a one-run win.

What a great stadium!

Dinner at Tom's Delicious Pizza!!! Awesome New York style pizza

We showed up at the Gershwin Theatre to enter our names into the lottery for front-row tickets to see Wicked. My name was called! Although I tried this three or four times while I lived in NYC, this was the first time I won.

Check out our seats. If you look closely, you can see Trent on the front row looking back at the camera. We were right in the middle of the action - all for only $25 per ticket.

We had a day full of quality entertainment here in the greatest city in the world. Just wait to see what tomorrow will bring!

I am SO jealous of you trip already. I can't believe you won the lottery! You are nice to show Trent such a good time over there! I hope today is as much as as yesterday! Especially starting with the Dr's appt!

I can't believe you got front row Wicked tickets! It's a sign that you're in for a good weekend. Good luck with the marathon. Can't wait to hear all about it.
