Day 4! New York, New York!

train ride home... I think the girls have officially had it!!!
Our last day in New York City and two more events on our wish list! Darn it Gumby, we paid for the tickets and we were going to use them, even if it killed us! Central park is free admittance, our City Pass had two unused events and we chose the Empire State Building! Not the best choice as it was extremely crowed, but we enjoyed it all the same. The park was so beautiful and I could have spent a great deal more time here but we only had several hours then dinner and train ride home! Sophie nodded off during the buggy ride, I poked her and suggested that she enjoy the ride, gosh I so wanted her to remember this!
We had a ball and most of all we gave the girls the gift of experience. You can't wrap experience up, it is priceless, but you can certainly take it with you and hopefully never grow out of it! 


Pin It!

Central Park looks amazing, as does the horse and carriage ride. Seems you'll need a holiday after your holiday to recover!

Rosemary, Your granddaughters are just the right age to remember this trip always. I agree that experiences like this are the perfect gift!

i live in new jersey and rarely visit the city. when i do, i feel overwhelmed and stressed. i want to love the city because everyone else does but i really don't.

you captured some beautiful spots and it looks like those girls had a wonderful time!!

it's not easy to knock them out at that age!!
