t-minus 15 hours until vacation

yes, at 5 a.m. tomorrow, we’re off for our fun, fun, fun vacation. we fly into nyc, and then we’re taking a train up to albany (saving lots of gas money and about 2 hours of our time. yay!). tomorrow night, joe and i are meeting up with everyone’s favorite blogger, lisanne. yay! i am so excited to meet her and her family! she will be the first blogging friend i will have met, and i know we’ll have a blast.

sunday morning will begin early for us as well as we’re heading up to cooperstown for the baseball hall of fame induction. woo hoo! the parking lots open at 8, and we’ve been told the one we want to get into will fill up fast, so i think we’re planning on leaving albany around 5:30 a.m. blah. i am *not* a morning person. we’ll spend the rest of the morning camped out on the grounds awaiting the 1 p.m. start of the ceremony. we were going to sleep in our car at the hall of fame saturday night as we were told we could, but when joe called yesterday they told us that we can’t. nice. it’s a good thing we didn’t cancel our hotel room. otherwise we’d be sleeping in the walmart parking lot!

while we’re in cooperstown, i will be doing call-in reports to the radio station. i’m really excited about that because for us journalists, datelines (as we call them in newspaper) are a big thing, and doing a report live from cooperstown will be awesome.

hopefully my favorite player of all time cal ripken jr. will speak first so we can head out a little early and try to beat the crowd to head back to albany and catch our train back into nyc. joe’s cousin, tommy, is picking us up there, and we’ll spend the next two days at his place, although most of our time will be spent in nyc since i’ve never really been there (the ferry ride across from staten island and then immediately back two years ago doesn’t really count). there is so much i want to see! we plan to have dinner at what looks like a nice italian restaurant in the city (it had a lot of good reviews), and on tuesday night, we’re heading to yankee stadium with tommy and his sons. we’re both so excited to get to see a game there before it’s torn down next year.

it’ll be a whirlwind trip, but it’s going to be great. then, a month after we get back, we’re off for our one-year anniversary trip to savannah. yay!

    That sounds awesome… I remember you saying you were going to the induction. I’ll look for you on the sports highlights. 😉

    ps. If you have a night available in Savannah, eat dinner at the Olde Pink House. It’s a small place so I don’t know if you need reservations, but I think it’s worth it.

    Plan on me being the second blogger you meet! We’ve got to meet some day :).

    I’m dying to go back to NYC! I would love to go in the summer next time. I have so many blog friends there I’d love to meet.

    Hey there, Cady! I don’t know whether you’ll be able to check your blog “from the road” or not, but … I’m not sure that it’ll work out this evening. 7:30 p.m. is kind of late for the kids. Is there any chance of getting together when you are back in Albany on the way home? Please let me know!

    You are in my (old) neck of the woods! Our 4th grade trip was to Cooperstown, and I remember it being such a big deal! Have fun!

  7. Laurel says:

    Have so much fun, and make sure to sit on the Hudson River side of the train to Albany. The view can’t be beat!

    Wow, it sounds like such a fun trip! I can’t wait to hear about it.
