42nd St. Love
J labeled us NY Girls this morning. Tee hee!
She loved NYC!!!! Better yet, she was able to hold it together just like a normal kid. I even called the AT last night because I was so excited that she did so well and had the best time!!! Yay J!!!!
We even exceeded my expectations. Our driver is a native New Yorker and he took a liking to J and made sure that she had the best time!!!! Here's our list of accomplishments:
Central Park Strawberry Fields
Look Sheri: (your reward for comments!)
A quick tour of Grand Central Station and dinner at Michael Jordan's.
Back to the hotel to crash. J spent most of the night awake and if she wasn't she was kicking me and sleeping on my side of the king size bed. Finally at 3 I put her on the sofa since we had to get up at 5:30.
7AM Bright and early:
42nd Street (Love Statue)
George Washington Park (Arches)in Greenwich Village
Little Italy (Got J 2 mini-canoli from the famous Ferrano's Coffee Shop)
Empire State Building
NYC Sky Ride
Madison Square Gardens
NY Public Library
Dakota Building (beautiful apartment building where John Lennon was murdered)
Radio City Music Hall
Tavern on the Green for lunch
Museum of Natural History
Nobu 57 (dinner) Sushi restraurant owned by Robert DeNiro. It was divine!
Beacon Theater (The theater has been purchased by the folks who own Madison Square Gardens so it has been completely renovated. Kirk brought me in the back stage door before the concert so that I could take a look around. Huge improvement!)
J crashed at 8 PM and I was right behind her. There was no kicking or taking over my side of the bed last night. She slept like a log.
This morning we went back to Battery Park and caught the ferry to Liberty Island to see the Statue of Liberty and to Ellis Island then back to Teterboro. Everybody was asleep on the plane within 15 minutes! The biggest news was that J fell asleep on the plane too! 8 people on the plane with lots of turbulence and she slept right through it! It's probably going to take 3 or 4 days to recover.
Home at 4:30, dinner and she was out like a light at 6:15! I'm having pate on mini-toasts for dinner.
I took 64 pictures. It's a record!
