Since he was little, Turner was always intrigued by New York City. I think it has to do with taxis...
He always wanted to know where all the taxis were (we live in suburban areas with out many taxis). One day, I told him there all drove around in New York. There ya go...
So, after weeks of waiting for the right chance, we were able to go.
|Turner inserting his Metro ticket. He called it "zivving" his ticket.|
I have no clue, either...
|One the platform in New Jersey.|
|Aunt Katie was kind enough to tag along as our navigator.|
|He enjoyed standing up while the train was moving.|
|First taxi ride! He was a little creeped out by not being in a car seat.|
|My view while I had breakfast in Central Park. It was the most|
perfect day to be in the city: sunny and maybe 70 degrees.
|Turner found this huge rock and kept running back to me to get a bite of his sandwich. He was thrilled|
when I suggested taking his breakfast and sitting on the top of the rock.
|More rock climbing. He loved the sticks and rocks...just like at any other park, anywhere...|
|Handing some change to the sax player.|
|We enjoyed a short walk in the park before heading off to see a few more sights.|
|What's that noise? He loved that he could hear the subway!|
|See the teeny tiny writing in the middle? In photoshop, it looked bigger. It says "Right Here!"|
There we are, on the jumbotron!
|Little Boy in the Great Big City|
|Aunt Katie suggested Crumbs, and we more-than-willingly agreed!|
|All that walking was just too much for almost five year old legs. He crashed with|
30 seconds left on our train ride.
Our visit to NYC was just perfect. It was the first time Turner had never had the option of being in a stroller, even if just for a break. After just three hours we had ridden the Path, seen our lives flash before our eyes during a taxi ride, had breakfast in Central Park, walked in Time Square, perused the M&M's store AND Toys R Us, purchased way too many cupcakes at Crumbs and ended the day with some postcards at a super tacky store.
It was fun!
