New York, New York

We spent the first four days of spring break in New York City, finally taking the trip that had to be postponed last year due to a flu outbreak in our house. This was Doodle's third trip to NYC and Tootle's first. Tootle loved the Big Apple and would love to live there. We packed our days with activities: walking, playing on rocks, and taking a carriage ride in Central Park; seeing Shrek the Musical on Broadway; visiting the American Museum of Natural History where the butterfly exhibit and the planetarium show were huge hits; getting up early to check out the Today show in Rockefeller Plaza (we were treated to a demonstration of a Segway car); skating at Rockefeller Center; riding the giant ferris wheel in Toys R Us on Times Square; playing the giant piano in FAO Schwartz; and dining and shopping at a little girl's mecca, American Girl Place. I think we made some memories to last a lifetime.

That sounds like a really fun trip! Like Tootle, I would love to live in NYC, or at least close enough to visit more often =)

My oldest has talked about going to NYC so often but we've never made it there. If we ever go I'm going to come back to you for the "must do" list. I love that you went on a carriage ride through Central Park, how fun!
