i heart the big apple.

i think thomas wolfe said it best: “one belongs to new york instantly, one belongs to it as much in five minutes as in five years.” & although, i’ve had the wonderful opportunity of visiting gotham city on several occasions, this was a first for jeffy & the boys… & let me tell you, they took to it instantly! thanks to you & all your help, my list of places to go, and things to do & see would have taken us weeks to accomplish. & unfortunately, we only had about 2 & 1/2 days to pack it in – which is exactly what we did. saw the sights, did a little shopping & even caught a baseball game. so here are some of the highlights. (as always, click on pictures to enlarge.)

gavin loved the view from our room, we had a hard time keeping him away from the windows, but who could blame him? a completely unobstructed view of central park? breathtaking!

no trip to new york is complete without a stop at dylan’s candy bar. you can’t beat three entire floors of candy. everything & anything you could possibly dream of… lollipops & jelly beans, nostalgia candy, but unfortunately for me – no big bins filled with vanilla tootsie rolls (my personal favorite). and in the front window, i spied the entire collection from project runway’s hershey challenge.

of course we found some time to do a little (okay maybe a lot) of shopping, explore central park, catch a musical, & eat lots and lots of new york pizza. but we also managed to pack in a yankee game.

of course we visited the brightest lights in the big city, checked out the huge ferris wheel inside toy ‘r us, and ate hot dogs & roasted peanuts from the street vendors.

and as the story books go, our trip to new york ended happily ever after with a midnight serving of serendipity 3’s frrrozen hot chocolate.

as you can see… we definitely played hard.
