After Christmas, we packed up and went to New York City for a few days. I go there all the time for work, but the boys haven’t been since they were wee babies. It was fun to experience the city through their eyes. Everything is so big and busy and exciting.
We stayed at a hotel right in Times Square, so it was pretty much sensory overload all the time. We did as many touristy New Yorky things as we could manage, including:
Looking at the holiday window displays at Macy’s
Seeing their cute mugs on the HUGE SCREENS in Times Square
Visiting Rockefeller Center and getting our picture taken in front of the tree
Eating SO … MUCH … FOOD, including wood fired pizza in an old church
And Romantic Sushi for Two
Funny aside… Tom and Biggest ordered the “Sushi for Two” at dinner one night and it ended up being a ROMANTIC sushi for two with dramatic lighting effects. Biggest was mortified. We were dying and now crack up and refer to everything as “Romantic (insert food item) for Two” such as,
Romantic milkshake for two
We spent a day in Central Park. It was cold and dreary, but we had fun anyway.
I wanted to ride the carriage being pulled by the horse wearing purple plumes because he looked the fanciest, but wouldn’t you know it that we didn’t get a single photo of the horse and his fancy plumes?! You’ll just have to imagine him.
The highlight for Biggest was going into the Ferrari showroom on Park Ave. You can’t tell from his expression in this photo, but he was thrilled and bought a Ferrari model there with his very own money.
We were walking by as they were testing the ball for New Years Eve. OMG 2016! 2015, where did you go?!
We took the train, so I brought along my project and managed a few stitches. Hanging my head in shame that I only made it to Day 5 of the stitch-a-long…
But how can you concentrate on stitching when you’re sitting next to this funny boy who waved at every single person we passed at every single station?
Next up… The BEACH!
