Stacey, Isla, and I spent about 40 hours in New York City a couple weeks ago. It was wonderful, and exhausting, and expensive, and chilly. And a bit of a blur.
The highlights? Having a photographer I found on Instagram - Mimi Nguyen - take photos of Isla in Central Park...
The skyline. Amazing. Simply looking up -- incredible.
Grand Central Station. Everything about it. The Whispering Wall :) The macaroons! Fully living up to their glorious reputation.
The outrageous amount people can charge for a simple meal. Although it was really good. "I don't know what's in this, but it's even better than butter. Whatever that would be..."
The Museum of Modern Art. Truly a cultural experience for me. A little tainted by the "video art" at the entrance elevators, but I recovered with Monet, Picasso, Pollock, Gauguin, Degas, etc, etc, etc.... Amazing! And whoever painted this, it may have been my favorite:
I'm so thankful we got to see a glimpse of the city. I was really wishing we had a couple more days. And about $5,000. And a baby sitter so we could go see a broadway show. Well, we'll plan better next time :) Thanks Aunt Stace for taking this detour with us... we love you.
P.S. Happy Birthday to my Daddy-O -- I miss you and love you. More with ever year that passes :)
