it's the D-OC!!!
Every year Cara, a die-hard Broadway Fan, makes a trip to New York City. This year I was finally able to attend the annual diabetes meet up. Yay!!! We all met for lunch at Le Pain Quotidien at noon. (Although one of us was very late because the only subway she knew would get her up-town to the right stop wasn't running on Sunday. Stupid subway!!)
Allison, Gina, Scott, Cara, Jason and Lee Ann, me, Tina, Stacey, Mara and my hubby Pete.
After a fun lunch, a bunch of us took advantage of the beautiful weather by strolling through Central Park. I suppose we looked a bit odd when we all gathered in a circle, pulling out our pumps to compare the various features. It seemed pretty natural to me though!
Once we made our way back down to 59th street, it was about time to say our good-byes. Pete and I were up for some more walking, and since we'd pass Cara's hotel on our way back to Grand Central, the three of us set off down 5th Avenue. I was really lucky to snag some extra time to chat with Cara. And I couldn't help but get a touristy picture of us in Rockefeller Center.
It's always such fun to take on-line connections made though blogging and Twitter and bring them into the real world. I'm sure other tourists people-watching in NYC would never have guessed that Cara and I met for the first time just a couple of hours before. They would probably have bet that we were old friends. Because when you get right down to it, we are!
