We met the Mets... barely

After almost 24 hours of trying to get to New York (flying standby isn't as great is it seems), we made it to the Yankees game. Unfortunately the game was rained out. Here's Dave sitting in our seats pouting a bit.


Since we were in the stadium, we thought we'd take a look around anyway.

The Mets and the Yankees played again on Saturday. Dave's Cousin Tracy and her boyfriend Andre decided to come with us. Our seats were even better for this game. We were behind home plate in the bottom box.


It was an exciting game and the Mets won. We witnessed a few fights between Yankees and Mets fans. We didn't start any of them, I promise. Here's a video Dave took. You can see how close we were to the action.

We stayed with Tracy and Andre who have a swanky apartment in Tribeca. They were so nice to take us around on Saturday to their favorite spots. I'm still dreaming about the corn on the cob with queso fresco I had at a little Cuban/Mexican restaurant in Soho.

Ashley, it sounds like you had a great weekend. I am so glad that you were able to go the game after it was rained out. You look gorgeous in that picture with Dave. Hope all is well! Please post the cake that you made for Dave's cousin!!!

This sounds like fun. How great it must be to be able to take off whenever and not to have to worry kids. ahhh how I miss those days. Is Dave a pilot? For some reason I think I remember you telling me at your bridal shower that he was, or maybe I was on something that day and I dreamed it :).
