So I've decided it's about time I finally get around to writing about New York and Connecticut :) I've had this post written for a week and a half, I just needed to add the pictures.
While walking through NY, a pigeon flew in Kathy's face, and of course she screamed. She was then mocked by a man walking by us :) We then bought fruit form a very nice fruit vendor. We also found a purse for $2700 at Bloomingdale's.
That night Kathy, Rachelle and I had a conversation where everything was much funnier than it normally would have been, especially because we were whispering because Mark was asleep. Good times :)
We attempted to see fireworks, but gave up when the traffic was insane. We then drove to Storrs to take Rachel back to UCONN. It was a little bit of a creepy drive, which was quite hilarious. Tuesday was our last day, and we spent it doing random things, like visiting Mark Twain's house.

We also learned the importance of putting the correct address into the GPS. We put in 'Hartford' instead of 'West Hartford' when trying to get to the library. We ended up in a sketchy part of town, and witnessed a guys bash in a girl's back car window with a baseball bat about 20 feet from us. We decided not to get out of the car there. We also cooked Kathy's family dinner to saw thank you. That night something happened to the sewer system, and it was leaking in the basement. We all went out to ice cream to use the bathroom :) We also washed our faces outside like we were camping, and waited until we were at the airport the next day to use the bathroom.
Our flights home were fairly uneventful. We only had our own TV's on our last flight, which was a bit disappointing. We got to SLC around 4 and we were so ready to be home! Vacations are fabulous, but it's always so good to be back.
Weird coincidence, I texted my Dad when we were in the Minneapolis airport. He called me just as we were landing in Vegas, and apparently he had been in Minneapolis the same time I was! He was coming home from a business trip and then had a layover in Denver. Crazy!
