Christmas in the city

Yesterday we braved the cold and the crowds and ventured into New York City for the day. We thought it would be fun to see the tree and the city decorated for Christmas. It was so very crowded and we waited in lines all day but it was a lot of fun. The children were real troopers and didn't complain about the lines and only got tired of walking at the end (I couldn't blame them my feet hurt too!).

After seeing the tree in Rockefeller Center we headed to lunch at The Burger Joint. It was a hole in the wall and had no apparent signage except for a small fluorescent light in the hallway. I had read that it had one of the best burgers in the city and it didn't disappoint.

We went to Central Park for a bit and even enjoyed a carriage ride.

The decorations and lights at night were stunning!

We even ventured into FAO Shwartz. As Grace was peering in the window she said, "This store could really change a kids life!"

This is a blurry, not great picture but it sort of sums up how we felt at the end of the day! If you look closely Harris is mid yawn and Grace is in the midst of explaining that she was tired and thought we should head home! And that is exactly what we did!


  1. I am so glad you did that! What a great memory for the kids.


  2. Oh my! The excitement, the cold, and the tiredness all soaked in as I experienced the great photos. You all are real troopers. That comment from Grace is almost scary. Let's see, how old is she?!
