|Megan and Liz - at Macy's Paramus New Jersey - American Rag Tour|
I asked my sister to accompany me on the the car ride up from CT via Connecticut's Merritt Parkway to the New Jersey Garden State Parkway. After all, it's only fitting that sisters go see sisters! But Megan and Liz aren't just any kind of sisters - they are also fraternal twins! I should also add that twins and triplets run in our family! We currently have two sets of twins and one set of triplets. WOWZA!
The ride up there was beautiful, it was a clear late summer day, and along the CT Merritt Parkway, we spotted several deer, about 10 feet from the roadside, grazing on the long summer grass. So magnificent. Dangerously close, but so beautiful.
This was my second time at Macy's Paramus New Jersey in the Garden State Plaza Mall, and let me tell you, parking is crazy! After we stalked shoppers leaving we were finally able to nab a spot, and made it to the Macy's juniors section to see the show.
The fans started lining up well before the 2pm start time, and by the time we arrived it was about five deep around the stage.

But the best thing? You didn't need a ticket to hear the girls at Macy's today!
The girls were great! And even though they were suffering some vocal fatigue from their jammed-filled concert dates, they toughed it out and sang several songs from their new album.

We had a great time visiting with Megan and Liz!
I even got to meet up briefly with some fellow New England bloggers that I had met the last time I was in the Paramus Mall, Jennifer from MommaDandDaBoyz (@mommaDandDaBoyz) and Monica from SoFamilyOnline (@Sofamilyonline)
The only downside of the Saturday trip was we took a wrong turn out of the mall and ended up coming home on I-95 via the George Washington Bridge. UGH! $13.00 toll to cross the bridge only to sit in bumper to bumper traffic for an hour. What is up with that? GPS should be auto-programmed to avoid the GW Bridge!
But it was meant to be as we saw so many road signs with family names...and we stopped and had a late lunch at my favorite Norwalk restaurant - the Mediterraneo! YUM!
