A few weeks ago, Charlie and I took a quick trip up to New York City. My friend, Ron, is dancing in the Radio City Christmas Spectacular this season, and we went to see him on opening night. It was fantastic. He was fantastic! Ron and I danced together all through high school and college, and I'm so proud of him!
Charlie and I went up late Thursday night and left Saturday morning, so it was a quick trip, but we were able to do a ton of fun things. I made a pretty tight schedule and then sent it to my friend, Courtney, who is a NYC expert, to tweak and approve. :)
From airport window to apartment window. Charlie thinks apartments are so cool.
We had to go try a cronut after hearing so much about them over the past few years. The cronut...a croissant plus a donut. Yum. We waited in line for a little over an hour for some. Worth it. Charlie said, "I just can't stop eating this it's so good."
Charlie said he knew what the Statue of Liberty was from Barney, so we had to go see it. We rode the Staten Island Ferry, and while we were waiting to board (with 100s of other people), Charlie said, "This is quieter than my cafeteria." Hilarious. Also, it was a little windy on the boat. :)
We then ate lunch at The Plaza. Charlie is so stinking cute. I sent this picture of him to my sisters and brother with the caption, "Kevin McAllister".
Since Central Park is right across from The Plaza, we strolled through the park (every movie set in NYC has a scene in Central Park, so I had to show Charlie), and went from playground to playground. It was a lot of fun.
We got changed and headed out to Rockefeller Center. We watched the ice skaters on the rink after the Zamboni rolled around, went to the Lego store, and then went to the big show! It was so exciting seeing Ron on stage. And of course I'm obsessed with the Rockettes. Perfection. If only I was an inch taller....ahhhhh!!!!!! Afterwards, Ron took us on the stage and backstage, and it was the coolest thing ever. The show has a Nativity scene in it, and we got to meet the neat camels backstage. Fun Fact: the trainer said camels favorite treats are pancakes...so adorable.
While we were there, we stayed with my good friend, Amanda. We ate a yummy breakfast on Saturday morning and took a walk through the park before we had to take off. We love Amanda so, so much and I wish I lived right next door to her. Here's the last time my sister, Jessica and I went up to stay with her in NYC.
We had such a fun time. Charlie said his favorite part was riding the subway. :) He's such a good buddy and travel companion. Charlie makes everything so much more fun and is so excited about life. I do love him.
I hope you have a wonderful week!!
