Quick recap...I decided to attend an agent/editor luncheon to pitch my new book. It was hosted by the Long Island Romance Writers. So we made a little weekend getaway out of it! My last post is all about the luncheon! This one is all about the family fun!!
After leaving the luncheon, we crawled through traffic to get to Coney Island!
|Someone didn't want his picture taken!|
We went on lots of rides and hubby and I even rode the Cyclone. That coaster is a deathtrap...seriously. I am a huge roller coaster nut, but I seriously feared for my life on this one. But, we can at least say we did it. We rode other, safer, rides and played some games. Dinner was at Nathan's on the Boardwalk.
|Had to show off her game winnings.|
And while we waited for dad to get our food, we were treated to a lovely sight.
|So so pretty!!!|
Then we played on the beach.
|Lighting was kinda weird then, so this is kinda dark.|
We decided to leave before the fireworks, just so we could navigate back to our hotel in semi-daylight. We got some decent rest so we could wake up bright and early for our big day in Manhattan!
After breakfast at the hotel, we took the PATH train in to the World Trade Center, where we met up with one of my oldest friends who now lives in Manhattan- our tour guide for the day! We'd wanted to see ground zero, but it's all fenced off as they are working on the memorial. We moved on to one of the oldest building in NYC, a church, and it's cemetery. I've always been intrigued by old cemeteries!
Then we walked through City Hall Park.
|She loves to pose in pics for me.|
We then walked through Chinatown and Little Italy and had lunch there.
|So cool that they close off the streets.|
Next was 5th Avenue and all kinds of fancy stuff.
|Lots of cool toys!|
|Awesome stuffed animals.|
We walked through Central Park...such a gorgeous view!
Then we headed to the American Museum of Natural History! Kids loved it!
|Really cool dinosaur skeletons!|
Had to see Rockefeller Center! That's my hubby and son at the top of the pic!
And Times Square. Could just sat there and people watched for hours...the bright lights and excitement!
Stopped at the Times Square Toys R Us! So so awesome...better than FAO Schwarz.
One last shot of Times Square before we headed to Crumbs Bake Shop for some fancy cupcakes.
So, as you can see, we really shoved a lot into our one day. Our feet definitely felt the affects of it. I wouldn't doubt that we walked at least 10 miles. But we had a really great time and I look forward to our next trip to NYC!
