A New York City Day

Today I...

Woke up to a skyscraper sunset
Had a Dunkin Donuts party and acrobatics show (courtesy of Landon Brough) and general run around and play time at a dock area on the Hudson River.
Played pretend.
Started reading The Ladies Auxiliary during naptime.

Took Landon and Ellie on a huge long New York City adventure -->
A subway ride across the Hudson
A bus stop wait watching the dozen cranes working at the World Trade Center site
A long bus ride through Manhattan with lots of kind people and a kind businessman making faces and playing tricks to entertain Landon and Ellie

A trip to the Central Park Zoo in the crazy, crazy heat!
A 'sticky-icky-chicky' popsicle break
Watching a street performer humpty dumpty puppet show
A walk to and trip through the FAO Schwarz toy store complete with some dancing around on the 'big piano' with Landon and Ellie

Phewph! Tired kids!

A Taxi ride down to meet Jordan near Animoto after work
A Subway ride to Hoboken
A fun (late) dinner at Johnny Rockets - a nice familiar spot from our last Hoboken stay
A lightrail ride back to the hotel

And Phewph again - kids to bed!

A long happy adventurous day. Landon was amazing in obeying and being a trouper just walking and walking through the crazy heat! Seems unbelievable that I could take these two out for such an adventure. Tomorrow's schedule is relaxing and recuperating though. :)
