A Quick Trip to the City

We took the kids on an quick tour of Manhattan.  My husband was leaving for home that night, and we wanted to have dinner with my grandparents before he left, so we had to hustle. We actually covered a lot of ground!

And yes, we got hot dogs and pretzels from the Hot Dog Truck/Roach Coach. All must do’s.

We took the kids to Toys R Us. (I would have preferred FAO Schwarz, but that will have to wait for another time.)

They were surprised at what waited for them inside.

After the Statue of Liberty, it was time to go home. Everything else would have to wait until next time.

My niece got a Central Park Puppy as  a souvenir. She was thrilled.

Goodbye New York. See you next time! I’ll miss you!
