Garrett’s birthday was four months ago, but we finally got around to doing his present! He loves helicopters so I knew a helicopter ride would be the perfect gift. (I gave him a toy helicopter with the gift certificate from Manhattan Helicopters for the ride on his actual birthday.) Between our two schedules, we couldn’t find a good time to go. Then I think we kind of forgot until I looked at the gift certificate and realized it expired at the end of January!
I’ve never ridden in a helicopter and it was completely different than I expected. I assumed the flight would feel choppy, but it was such a smooth ride! (Oh, and getting in the helicopter totally reminded me of the helicopter scene in Annie.)
I had the worst seat. It was just like the middle seat in a car, squished. The views were still great because the windows were huge, but it was difficult to get good photos since I couldn’t get that close.
Love this photo of Garrett with the Freedom Tower.
It’s so cool to see the city from this height and angle. Totally worth the trip whether or not you’re a tourist! We circled the Statue of Liberty and it was beautiful there with the city in the background.
If you want something fun or different to do, if you’re visiting or live here, you should definitely give the helicopter tour a try!
Have you done something touristy in your city that was super fun?

Taken on a much sunnier day ☀️🕶️ I used to think I could live somewhere gloomy and rainy, but… after this bout of clouds, downpours, and overall gloom, I’m realizing I wouldn’t last a week. #tuckernucking
I was so excited that @MyMyrtleBeach invited me to come play pickleball with them! I am obsessed with pickleball and had a blast playing at City Pickle, right here in NYC. We brushed up on the rules, practiced some dinking, and got to play a few rounds of the game– it was the perfect way to spend the day because everyone plays at the beach! #ad
I loved watching The Parent Trap growing up and still do to this day. It is one of my go-to comfort movies… There’s so much I love about it: the cast, the soundtrack, and (of course!) the wardrobe. We all have a little Annie James and a little Hallie Parker in us! I’ve always been drawn to Annie’s style, but love the carefree nature of Hallie’s. #parenttrap @nmeyers #tuckernucking

Wearing vs styling an outfit with a bump! I feel so much better when I’m wearing something cute (dress well to feel well maybe?)… I’ve been fighting the temptation to wear comfy clothes while pregnant though! So far I have found blazers and cardigans an easy way to dress up my second trimester bump, especially as we enter fall.
