New York City

Last weekend we took a last minute trip to the big apple for some fun in the COLD! I use the word cold, but it really doesn't do it was the type of cold that makes your bones hurt.  I packed for the 'cold' weather but obviously not good enough! My feet and legs were cold and my eyes watered for 3 days straight from the wind chill!  Although this description sounds somewhat miserable we had the time of our life.  Kiley will be having a birthday soon so we thought what better present than to take her to NYC to explore all the wonderful things she has only heard about!

Some the highlights: Staying right in Times Square, Cupcakes at Magnolia, Shopping on 5th Ave...a trip to the American Girl Store (kiley was in heaven), Natural History Museum, Experienced Fine Dining at its FINEST (more on that below), Canal Street, China Town, Little Italy, Subway, Statue of Liberty, WICKED....

Wicked was amazingly SPECTACULAR...I want to go back just to see it again...and again...and again!

Next time you are in NYC you need to make a stop at the awarding winning Daniel for dinner on Park Ave.  Although it is liable to put a dent in the pocket book it is worth the experience!  I wanted to take pictures of each course but the atmosphere was such you would feel completely AWKWARD pulling out your camera to document! Let's just say we had 4 waiters to our table and each of us were treated like we were the only people in the place.  The food presentation was art and the way they served us was like an orchestra with everything happening on count! Kiley's favorite part was each time you would stand up to leave the table a waiter would be right there to pull out your chair and wait for you to return!  We tried squid, flounder, frog legs, and many other things we have no idea about!


The next best thing about the trip was coming home to our little Roma cakes!!

NYC I will see you again in April for our GIRLS TRIP!!!
