Even though we've spent a week in NY, I'm still confused with the subway system. Luckily the kids kept themselves occupied while we got from location to location.


Today we went to Katz delicatessen, known for their pastrami sandwiches. It was pretty delicious, and I'm not a big fan of pastrami.

Afterwards we headed up the street to Sugar, for some sweets.

Kristin took some skating lessons in Rockefeller center. She was having a good time until she fell on her butt.

We ended the day having dinner at Serendipity with Vanessa and Justin, home of the famous Frozen Hot Chocolate.

New York has been such an awesome experience for the kids, and I can't wait to come visit again.

Harry Potter

Today we headed to Central Park and went on a horse carriage ride. I think Kayla asked me every 2 minutes, "did the horse poop, did the horse poop?"

We also headed to FAO Schwarz, but right next to it was THE apple store. I didn't get to go in, but it was pretty cool seeing the glass structure.

I think Kaylas dream came true when she walked down this aisle of dresses inside FAO.

The absolute BEST part of the day, was going to the Mary Poppins Broadway show. Vanessa and Justin purchased tickets for us, and I think we got some of the best seats in the house. Towards the end, Mary Poppins flew right above us. Pretty awesome. During the intermission, Kayla kept asking, "Where did Harry Potter go?!?!"

We also went to the Toysrus store in Times Square. They have a Ferris wheel INSIDE the store!

Statue of Liver-ty

Today we went to see the Statue of Liberty, otherwise known as the "Statue of Liver-ty" to Kayla. The kids enjoyed the boat ride over, the foam crown, and purchasing souvenirs.

Afterwards, we headed to Soho in search of Magnolia Bakery. After walking around for half an hour, we gave up and headed to Rockefeller Center. Kristin will be going back this Thursday for an ice skating lesson, and I'll be skating with Kayla. Hope it stays dry.

Monkey See, Monkey Do

The kiddos are having a blast in NY. Today, we went to the American Museum of Natural History, Nobu, Toysrus, and Juniors. I'm pooped.

Monkey see. Monkey do.

It rained pretty bad today, and I can safely say, that splashing in rain > museum.

The real reason we're here, was for the engagement shoot of this awesome couple. Check out their photos HERE.

We're heading to New York in a few days, and the kids are super excited. I have to admit, I'm pretty excited too. We've never been on a plane ride together before so I hope they manage ok.

Things Kristin is looking forward to:

Going to Ghiradelli Center (She got Ghiradelli Square and Rockerfeller Center mixed up)

Kayla is looking forward to:

The biggest toy store in the world
Riding on the merry go round in Toyrus
