Big News & A Yankees Game

Well its official. Sort of. We're leaving New York this month. I'm like so sad I can't even talk about it. We fly out on May 30 and are going to stay with Zack's parents and house sit for them while they're in Europe for a few weeks. I'm so excited to be in Utah to be with family and friends. But, I am so sad to be saying goodbye to our life in New York. We have made some amazing, lifelong friends here and have grown to feel at home in the city.

We are keeping most of our things in storage here while Zack is on the job hunt because there is a chance he'll get a job out here and we'll be back in no time (fingers crossed.) Then our trip to Utah will be more of a vacation. If Zack is going to find a job here in NY that means we're committing to staying for a long time. So a month with family is just what we need. Zack and I both crave the presence of our families in our lives, especially Gunner's. But, we also feel like New York is the place for us at this time in our lives. Needless to say, we are incredibly torn/confused.

We're hoping that spending June with our families will help us to clear our heads and figure out what is the right next step for us. Also, mostly we're hoping that Zack will find the job of his dreams and we'd move, literally, wherever that would take us. So its time to really buckle down and soak up as much city as we can, just in case we aren't coming back.

We FINALLY made it out to a Yankees game. Lately, I've really really wanted a Yankees hat. I've almost bought one like 5 times. But for some reason I always found an excuse not to. Well, when we started looking at Yankees tickets, the only day we could go happened to be CAP DAY!!!! Basically that means everyone gets a free hat at the game. I was so excited. Luckily, I had already bought Gunner a little toddler sized one a week before, so the three of us matched. Priceless.

The game was such a blast. We aren't huge baseball fans, but we are huge sports fans, and huge "spend the day in the sun" fans. The Yankees went down 3-0 in the first few innings, but then once they got going they were unstoppable and ended up winning 3-9.

that belly button.... 

People were absolutely crazy for Gunner. Everyone wanted to stop to wave at him and admire him. Especially the drunk lady who was sitting in front of us. She kept touching him and telling him she was going to steal his shoes. He wasn't sure how to respond to her, and neither was I. Haha. But people were so nice and helpful because of Gunner. Normally, people keep to themselves and don't go out of their way to help. But bring a baby into the equation and people are falling all over themselves to help. So my advice, if you're coming to NY, bring a baby. Although, having a baby sure does complicate things like subway stairs and taxis. But, its still worth it.

Gunner's first WAVE.

All in all, the the game was exciting, the weather was heavenly (aside from a few rain drops), and the company was best of all. I'm so in love with my little family, I can't imagine who I'd be without them. The only thing I love more are Gunners squishy little chubby legs in shorts. I. Could. Die.

Summer is just around the corner and I can barely contain my excitement. Watermelon, soccer games, Bar-B-Ques, cousins, swimming, tan lines, family. I already know its going to be one of our best yet! And no matter what happens with the job situation, I'm grateful to know that I'll have my Zack to keep me sane and my Gunner to keep my laughing. The future is bright for the Dupaix family and I can't wait to see whats next. 
Thanks for following us along on this journey. What summer plans are you most excited for?
