NYC, What is it About You?

While Mini-me was on Spring Break, and Flower was on Easter Break, we headed north to NYC to spend some time with Grandma and Grandpa. They have a fabulous apartment on Central Park North, right across the street from the park.

The girls in the Subway station less than a block away from Grandma's and Grandpa's apartment.

We took the subway a lot. It was a great way to get around. The girls were funny and would say things like "We don't even have a subway in Frederick!" No. No we don't.There were a lot of people. Sometimes the kids got squished.

The view from the Staten Island Ferry.
Mini-me was in heaven in the Hershey's Store. Had this giant bottle of syrup been real, and not a piggy bank, we would have bought it.
We had dinner at the famous Sylvia's, and even met Sylvia herself. It was delicious.
Grandma and Grandpa gave us tickets to go see The Little Mermaid. It was the girls' first Broadway show, and they loved every minute of it.
With the park so close to the apartment, we spent quite a bit of time there. We wandered around with Flower while Patch and Mini-me took a nap with Grandma.

The girls loved the lights of Time Square, but thought is was a little too full of people. Saturday was very rainy and foiled all of our fun outdoor plans. Next time we'll have to see the scenes from Enchanted in Central Park.

Did you go to the American Girl Store? I noticed the doll and bag.

We did indeed hit up the AG store. Flower brought her doll she got for Christmas a couple of years ago, and then she bought a book while we were there. Mini-me was completely overwhelmed by all the people, and Patch just wanted to get out of there.
