New York

We took Celia to New York two weekends ago as part of her birthday gift.  It was a great time.  It is so neat to be doing more things like this now that she is older.

We got a great view of the city on our way home

Celia was impressed with the crowded time square.
She was not impressed with the Minnie Mouse that tried to hug her without her permission.
The characters try to get pictures with children (or adults) and then you have to pay them.
We were all not interested!

We took the subway to Ground Zero.
It was nice for Celia to experience the subway and it also gave us a break to sit down.
We did a ton of walking.  Ground Zero was impressive.  I am not sure it was really meaningful to Celia, but she was polite and took it in a bit.

While we were there she held up this cube, ha!

This is a little snippet of the Lego store.  It was very small but Celia loved every bit of it.
There was a big dragon coming out of the wall all made of legos of course.

We loved Bryant park.
There was a carousel that had $3 rides so we treated Celia.
We then played games.  They have a cart with an attendant that will lend out games for you to play.
It is completely free and an amazing idea.  Celia and Pete played connect four and then we all played UNO.  I was impressed with the variety of different games.

This is the Library Lion statue, or at least we are calling it that.
We toured the NYC public library and Celia was highly impressed.
It took us awhile to find the children's section but we did and they had Lions made out of legos on display.  The library was closing otherwise we would have explored the children section.  But we just took a peek.

It was a great trip!  We hope to have many more little trips as Celia (and Audrey) get older.
