We survived a quick, less-than-36-hour trip to Ithaca, New York, this weekend. Despite a hurricane battering the East Coast, we had a great time.
Before we left for Ithaca, we took Nora to her first Phillies game at Citizens Bank Park. Though the team lost, Nora had a great time and even got a few mini Philly Phanatic figurines from the kind usher in our section.
Once we rolled into Ithaca, we ate at Moosewood Restaurant. Steve and I really enjoyed ourselves, ordering a pitcher of Apricot Wheat Ithaca Beer (my all-time favorite beer). Nora enjoyed a fruit plate, bread, and pasta with marinara. I can’t believe we can order real food for her now.
Steve and I attended the wedding of college best friends that night at the local farmers market. The rain held out for the event, and we had a great time reconnecting with some of the awesome people we knew and lived with several years ago.
Sunday was a wash out, so we mainly stuck to indoor activities. We even made it to our old college to buy Nora a t-shirt and take a (pretty bad) picture.
Thanks to my parents help our weekend getaway was a fun one! It is great to have double the helping hands wrangle a newly walking child.
