New York City
Andrew and I took Benjamin and Daniel to New York City. It was their very first time and they were so excited leading up to and throughout our overnight visit. We stayed at the Hilton Gardens thanks to Grandmom and Grandpop Humphries. (Thank you, thank you so much!!)
After our drive in, we set out for Dylan's Candy Bar then to Central Park where we took a nice stroll followed by a horse drawn carriage ride.
Later that night, we went to Radio City Music Hall for the Christmas Spectacular Show then on to see the famous tree at Rockefeller Center. Daddy spotted the famous Magnolia Bakery so we had cupcakes, milk, and coffee for dinner that night. It was delicious!
The next day we took a long, brisk (understatement) walk to FAO Schwartz ( all the while checking out Times Square & admiring all of the wintery window displays on 5th Ave.) and let the boys each pick out a toy. And in between, we took several taxi rides, marveled at the big buildings and took in all of the sights and sounds of Christmas in the city.
It was such a great little trip!
