Ok, so you’re all caught up on our first two days in New York City by now, but in case you missed it go back and read the posts from the last two days (here and here)!

Our final full day in the city began with a walk to look for something delicious to get for breakfast.  Believe it or not, it’s not as easy as it sounds.  We searched & searched for a bakery where we could get a gooey pastry to no avail.  We even asked the concierge for help, but none was to be had.  She suggested stopping in one of the deli’s that are on every corner, but their stuff wasn’t fresh – or gooey.  Oh well.  Such is life.

Anyway, while we were out on our search, we walked past this sign, which prompted a very awkward conversation between myself and my six year old.  And I hadn’t even had my coffee yet…..

Lucky for me, my kids uncle (their dad’s brother) is gay and has been in a relationship with his partner for at least five years, so that made it much easier to explain what being gay meant.  Ugh.

After we found some food, we went back to our room to get ready for my brother in law’s wedding (remember yesterday when I told you that Chris was in the wedding?).  The wedding itself was at a greek restaurant in Astoria called Cavo.  It was about a million degrees a gorgeous place to get hitched if I do say so myself.  They got married on an outside patio type area and they both looked amazing.  

Here they are after the ceremony & pictures:

 See?  They are adorable, right?

But feast your eyes on this other super cute couple:

 We clean up pretty nice, huh?

After the ceremony, we all made our way to the Dumbo Loft in Brooklyn for the reception.  Sadly, the battery in my camera died, so I have no pictures from the reception, but I do have this video of my husband’s speech that he gave (don’t worry, it’s only a few minutes long):

After the reception, we went back to the hotel, swam with the kids for a little bit.  Then Tuesday morning we packed up, came home and have a whole bunch of new memories to add to our collection!
