Guests in Gotham

This has been a special weekend for us as Mom's parents (known as Tutu & Huni to their 2-legged granddaughters ) have come to NYC for a visit. This is Tutu's 3rd visit to the big city - but the first time Huni as ever been here. I can't wait to show them my new hometown and introduce them to my boyfriend.

First things first - Friday morning I wanted to show them my blog - after all SPA DAY was to prep for their visit!

The two legged ones left me behind and went to see a few sites. Fine. I can always nap. Later that evening we all head to 47th Street for dinner. I'm thinking Huni is an easy mark and I might get some burger myself! I hear he likes Bacon that sounds like heaven - you people actually put BACON and CHEESE on a BURGER! Oh my! Bring it on!

Tutu kept a tight grip on me - somehow I don't think she'll share her burger as easily as Huni - I heard Mom trying to inform them of certain "RULES" - (please - I KNOW they came all the way to NYC for one reason - to spoil ME - that's a grandparents job, so I hear that bending the rules is expected)

Saturday we head to THE PARK. I asked Due to help me get that clean dog perfume smell off me! And the sooner the better!

We're waiting's time for Brunch....and that means BACON
Our food isn't ready yet - so I table hop and this very nice man shared his bacon with me - and his own dogs. He had an entire side order of bacon - JUST FOR DOGS! How sweet is that!
I had to share this picture that Huni took. I don't know her name - but I like to think of her as "Lucy". She's here every weekend and sits in her own chair. Such a elegant lady.
Time for a family photo - but do these people NOT understand that we are standing on the edge of a lake. An entire body of water (with ducks) just waiting for me to stir things up. Apparently Mom was thinking the same thing which is why I am in restraints (OK - fine - it's just a leash)
One last shot before we head out of my man Due - with the girls! We had a great time sharing our Saturday ritual with Mom's folks. I loved showing them our park and introducing them to our friends. I think they understand a little better why it is that we love living in New York.

Looks like you had a terrific weekend. I am going to need to talk the peeps into bacon over grilled chicken.

This is the cutest blog! I grew up in NYC (Staten Island) and worked in midtown for 16 years. You're bringing back some good memories :)

Your parents look like such nice people :) I'm glad you had a happy weekend together in your beautiful city!

Ooh how fun! I've only been in the city a few times, and mostly when I was a sicky last year, but my mom and dad go there every day. Now I can see why!

Thanks for visiting! Glad to be new friends!
