NYC, Day 2

Our second day in NYC dawned clear and bright, and after a quick breakfast of bagels, we headed down to Battery Park for a look at Lady Liberty.

While we were down at the park, Paulie and Elizabeth decided to have their caricatures drawn and buy some souvenirs, then Elizabeth and I had our pictures taken with the Lady herself. She was quite a character!

We set out from Battery Park on the Staten Island Ferry so we could get a better look at the Statue and the kids could get a good look at Manhattan from the boat. It was a windy but beautiful ride.

After the ferry ride, we headed to Ray's Famous Pizza which was located near our hotel. After lunch we took a short rest at the hotel before heading out to the Museum of Natural History. Paulie and Elizabeth really enjoyed seeing the many animals on display!

They even got a close up look at some of the animals that Paul used to see when living in Alaska.

We saw a huge mask from Central America. It was tempting to want to reach out and touch it!

After dinner at Whole Foods and a walk around Union Square Park, we headed to M&M World.

Day 2 was so full that they just passed out when we finally got back to our room!
