On New Year's Day, we decided to go out for a quick brunch with Leslie and the boys before we left the city. We enjoyed a delicious meal at Pier 23 - my breakfast sandwich tasted like heaven... ...and I was super excited when Brent agreed to split a root beer float with me. He rarely ever agrees to dessert, so I jump on the opportunity when it arises.
The drive up there was initially very frustrating... I have a very short fuse when I'm behind the wheel and this curvy road up the hillside was packed with annoying touristy-type minivans moving at a snail's pace. I was ready to pull into the first available spot I saw, but nooooooooo.... Brent wanted to go all the way to the top. I believe he even used the term "tippy-top", just to send my blood pressure through the roof. But boy I'll tell you, I need to learn to be more patient and just go along for the ride because Brent was right... it was so worth driving all the way up to the "tippy-top". The view was breathtaking. We even braved the freezing cold 20 mph winds and climbed the rest of the way on foot to the top of the hill to take a million pictures.
It was a wonderful way to spend the first day of the new year... I can't wait to see what else 2013 has in store!
