The Man, The Myth, The Legend

If you've spent any sort of time around us, you've probably heard us talk about Noah's younger brother, Jordan.

That same Jordan who has weaned himself of needing {even wanting} to sleep in a bed, who attempted a sleep-30-minutes-every-four-hours routine {"productivity is through the roof!"}, whose near-arm-loss during the talent portion spelled the demise of the Mr. Genola pageant, who tried to make himself immune to giardia by drinking down the river in intervals.

Well, the one and the same made his way to NYC for a quick visit in May, and as one might expect, a great time was had by all.

Jordan didn't have a ton of time in the city, but we hit most of the midtown sites, the LDS Temple, Julliard/Lincoln Center {Jordan is an extremely talented classical guitarist, so music-related sites and stops were high priority} and Central Park before a quick bite at Shake Shack. Then we headed downtown for a stroll through the Financial District and across the Brooklyn Bridge.
The guys caught a Josh Ritter / Annie and the Beekeepers concert on evening two and by morning three, we were already bidding Jordan adieu {not for long, though, as we met up in San Diego the next day...}.
The trip was not without its classic Jordan antics. My favorite is how he managed to take a cash-only DC-NYC bus trip and eat a cash-only meal in Chinatown without a single dime in his pocket {plenty of dimes on a debit card, but in a city that's frustratingly opposed to plastic...}. Didn't seem to faze people. The guy is inherently trustworthy.

Quick trip - but I hope we convinced you this is your kind of town, Jordan! Thanks for the visit!

Maybe I should adopt this sleep-30-minutes-every-four-hours routine...to think of all I could accomplish. Then again, that routine may come naturally with this second little babe! Glad you guys had a good time!

Good old Jordan! One of the main things that comes to mind when I think of Jordan is the time he tried to bike from Logan to Payson. I heard he made to Clearfield before his dad came to pick him up, but that could be rumor... :)

Ha! "Productivity is through the roof." I like it when I find another person who speaks Seinfeld.

I still remember being completely enchanted by Jordan's guitar playing at your Payson wedding reception. Sigh.

What fun for the three of you to enjoy NY and togetherness. So good to see pictures of the cute niece and nephews. Sure love you all. Hope you are doing well in your area. Still can't thank you enough for helping the little gal from Indo. Her Dad will always sing your praises. She is now settled at the 'Y' with her sister. Or is she the 'U'. They split the sheet and are going opposite schools. Keep blogging. Love the photos. See you hopefully in 2011. Stay safe. You are all so awesomely cute....

I already commented here, but whatever. I'm so excited that your husband's grandfather was at the World's Fair with Grandma! How cool is that? Destiny. :)

Sounds great! And even though it's only 8am, I now have hunger pangs for Shake Shak :)
