Great Trip !!

We went to NJ/ NYC for my Daughters Sweet 16. She did not want a big party for her Birthday she wanted a Cake Boss cake and a purse.

We went up Monday Aug 1st and stopped by the Bakery on our way to the hotel and it was over a 2 hour wait and after the traffic we sat it that was just too much. So we grabbed some Falafel and Rice with Taboulie and went to the hotel.

We arrived at Carlos on August 2nd at 6:05 am. We got parking directly in front of the bakery and we were second in line. We met some nice people including the Officer that guards the shop in the a.m. And the really HOT prosecutor that was about 6 ft 2 and in a nice suit. She picked out a cake from the display and we got a lobster tails and she got a cupcake. Sweatshirts were all sold out in her size. No one from the family was there. Just worker bees :(

We left there with wonderful parking advice from the prosecutor and went up one street to park on Second Street and walk to the Path to take to NYC. We arrive in Chinatown by 8:30 and it was barren. Once the shops started to open the streets started hopping a little. We made some "deals" and Kendall got the purse that she wanted for her birthday and I even managed to stumble onto a gorgeous find for myself. It was exciting and scary! We ate near Madison Square and walked down the entire Times Square area. It was a great day and by 2:00 pm she was exhausted! We headed back to the subway and to the Path to our car. Luckily traffic back home to RI was minimal and rather quick run.

Her Sweet 16 included: Of course a handmade card from me, a pandora bracelet with 4 charms Sweet16, cupcake for trip to bakery, purse for trip to NY and cheer megaphone for her sport in school, a coach purse, the trip and the cake boss cake. Her sister gave her 11 presents the day before the trip!! So she was well spoiled. My last baby, my last Sweet 16. Very sad for momma!
