Cade's 6th Birthday and More adventures in NYC

It has been a few days since I have actually had time to sit down and blog...so I am trying to do a few catch up posts....Thursday the 25th was Cade's birthday...James and the boys arrived in the city on Wednesday evening, after Macey and I had been in Yonkers, NY all day for a Children's Place shoot...The shoot went really well, and she had a great time doing it...But after our VERY long day, train ride back into Manhattan, we couldn't wait to see the rest of our family...Macey even asked me if we could run back to the apartment....When we went to the shoot in Yonkers, it was straight uphill for a mile...so needless to say, there was no running back home...hee hee...but we walked really fast...and when we got to the apartment...the boys were waiting in the lobby...We were SO happy to see them...Words just can't explain....Our friends, Lisa and Brian, have been staying with us this week...and Lisa had dinner ready for all of us when we got home...Chicken, mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese and biscuits...the first southern meal we have had in a while...Macey and I anyway =) Yummy...It was a great day...Macey's first job, and our family reunitied...at last....

The next day was Cade's birthday...and Macey wanted to take him to Dylan's Candy Bar, and get him a cupcake for his birthday...He picked smore's and he loved it...that was his "cake"...since he didn't have one...Here he is showing me how old he is...has to use 2 hands now...=-(Chowing down on the cupcake....too cute...Check out those eyes....We walked around the city pretty much all day...took the boys to see a few stores, FAO Schwartz, Toys R Us, walked around Times Square, and then we met the Salyers, for Cade's birthday dinner at a themed restauraunt called Mars 2112...Cade loved it...you had a "spaceship ride" to get to Mars-where you actually had your dinner...There was funky music playing and aliens walking around...He thought it was really cool....a cool way to spend his 6th bday....Ian, Landon, Cade and Macey....Our family....The restauraunt from the balcony...really cool placeMy big birthday boy....where has the time gone?????Our good friends, Brian and Lisa....After dinner we headed over to Rockefeller Center to go to the "top of the Rock"....It was absolutely beautiful....breathtaking....we watched the sunset...then we took some pics of the city lights.....Here we all are...amazed by the view...Me and James in front of the Empire State Building.....Cade looking at the city....Me and Ian....love that guy....some pretty amazing pics....if I do say so myself...Sunset...Our family.....Some night pics.....love these...After we got back to the room...Cade opened his gifts...Landon got him a drawing book, and a pen from the Disney store....Cade loves to draw...so this was the perfect gift for him....Macey got him a Monchichi....he had been wanting one ever since she got hers....He loves it....James and Ian got him some Transformers....Cade went to see the movie last week....and he was wanting some..He loves them...and had a great bday...He told me this was the best bday he has EVER had....and I was worried about it...=) He is such a good boy....Love him so much.... Macey had a second job on Friday with Parent Child Magazine...She had a great time doing that one too....She will be in the September 2009 Back to School issue.....
She goes for a casting tomorrow for Crayola....at 10 am...so continue to remember us in your prayers..God Bless....Love and Miss you all back home....
