We made a quick jaunt up to NYC for this holiday weekend. Finn doesn't remember coming here before (he was 9 months the last time) so it's been an all new experience for him.
He's completely mesmerized with all the taxicabs he sees everywhere. Isn't it always about the transportation with him?
We stumbled on a street fair earlier this morning, which was a huge hit. There's something festive about blocked off streets and all those tents full of goodies.
We ventured up a few blocks to Grand Central Station.
Then caught the subway to the toy shop Finn was eager to visit.
Toy shop might have been an understatement. Enchanted houses some of the most beautiful toys in all of NYC, in my humble opinion. They have a wonderful collection of wood, wool, and other natural toys.
We saw many toys that already grace our home, and a few to add to our collection. A fun trip to the toy shop, indeed!
After Finn's nap, we headed over to Columbus Circle where Finn was impressed with some of the statues.
We played at one of the amazing playgrounds in Central Park.
And climbed enormous rocks outside the playground.
We also met up with some of Paul's college friends who he reconnected with over Facebook that now live near the city (including Jodi, who sent us this wonderful gift back in January).
I had such a fun time meeting all the people who knew Paul "back when". We truly had a wonderful time hanging out with them this afternoon.
Then it was back to the hotel for dinner and bed. What a fun day in the city! We're very excited to see what tomorrow has in store for us.
