Parent's Weekend

This is way after the fact but we're trying to get caught up on updates :)
Our parents came to visit the last weekend in March which also happened to be Ethan's birthday weekend. We all met up near our parents hotel at a whisky bar to catch up.

The next day was Ethan's birthday and we all met up for brunch at Sebastian's on the Lower East Side
Happy Birthday Bubba!

After brunch, the girls went shopping! Because, duh. :)
Mom was on a hunt for a new jacket for our upcoming Europe trip. She found exactly what she was looking for at Zara, isn't she cute?
That night was Ethan's birthday party at the martini bar where he works- Simone

It's a great place and was a fun night
The next morning we set off to try brunch at the new Laduree in SoHo
The food was good but the service wasn't as good as one would expect

After brunch we walked over to the Alex and Ani store to show Mom some bracelets we thought she would like. 
Then we continued our shopping trip uptown to the new H&M in Times Square. My initial instinct is that location would be crazy busy and very unorganized but it's similar to the Forever 21 in Times Square...they have so much staff that it's actually way more organized than many of their other locations. Dad found a chair and asked me to take his picture with Elmo (the red dot in the background on the street below)
That afternoon we went to see Cabaret with Alan Cumming and Michelle Williams at Studio 54. Sadly, Alan Cumming was sick so we saw his understudy (who was great!) and Michelle Williams was fabulous as far as her acting but the vocal solos didn't blow us away.

Family Selfie!
After the show we grabbed an early dinner at Dos Caminos which is one of the only decent Mexican restaurants in the city. 
This was the world's most expensive bowl of guacamole...but worth every bite. Apparently we didn't like it.....

And that was our weekend! Thanks to the parental units for coming and playing with us.

Until Next Time
