She is really a good sport. She knew when I took this picture that it would end up on my blog, but she didn't mind at all.
We arrived at the train station with plenty of time, but the wait didn't seem that long and before we knew it, we were on the train speeding (well, maybe not speeding) along to New York.
I'd been sleeping, so I think that might account for the hairstyle. At this point, we were travelling along the Hudson River and I was pointing out the sights to Kacy. I really enjoy this train ride.
Our hotel was directly across from Penn Station, making it really easy to get from the train to the hotel. Check-in, was a little less convenient, but after a wait in line, finding out that we couldn't check in, and stashing our bags (for $4 each) in the luggage room, we were off and exploring.
They both loved the bright lights, hustle and bustle and excitement of Times Square. And then we travelled on to...
Radio City Music Hall where we would go on Friday to see the famous Christmas Show with the Rockettes. Next was.....
Rockefeller Center. This was such fun. We saw the tree, the crowds of people, the ice skaters, the angels, toy soldiers, etc., etc.
From there we walked down Fifth Avenue to St. Patrick's Cathedral, Saks 5th Avenue, to Central Park where we took a horse drawn carriage ride around the park. It was a balmy and lovely evening and the ride was such fun. We walked down into the park to watch some more ice skating. I was dying for some coffee so we stopped at an outdoor Kris Kindle Mart - sorry, no luck. But before we knew it, we were walking into a Starbuck's for some yummy coffee treats.
By this time, we were pretty tired. We did manage to have some dinner and stop at Macy's before going back to the hotel and to bed. Stay tuned for day two of "Kacy Meets NYC."
