"Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" I just can't seem to get that tune out of my head! Can you only imagine why???
Early Wednesday we took a double decker tour bus through the Upper West Side. Mostly residential, a nanny or two can be seen strolling leisurely though Central Park, an extremely wealthy area. Yoko Ono lives in a 18 room apartment, top floor overlooking Central Park and Strawberry Fields, a part of the Park dedicated to her late husband, John Lennon.
We were dropped off at the Metropolitan Museum where we were overwhelmed by it's size and content. To be in the same room with a Van Gogh and a Monet, magical for me. My grand-daughters had recently studied about them in school so this made the experience doubly fascinating. The Egyptian Exhibit was awe-inspiring and very large.
It was raining when we left so our trip through Central Park had to wait until day four. We went back to the hotel by cab and all slept for a couple of hours which worked out beautifully. Dinner and later a fifteen minute walk to 42nd Street where the girls were exposed to their first Broadway Show. Front row seats middle center, I could have touched the conductor's head. Almost too close but I'm not complaining! They have seen several shows in the Boston, area but I have to say you haven't seen a show until you see one on Broadway!!! "Just sayin", it is just a magical place.
We all walked back to our hotel humming tunes from the show. The girls absolutely loved it. Grandma and PaPa loved that they will always remember the experience.
We did run into a few poor souls that talked to themselves with no electronic devices, however, and they had not seen Mary Poppins, trust me.
A good night sleep was had by all, getting ready for day four, our last day in New York. Not sure PaPa and I could have handled any more!!!???
