Phew! We’ve had a fabulous time in New York. It stretched us and wore us out–but we saw so much and loved being together. Our first day here we visited the New York Public Library, Rockerfeller Center {the Lego store!} and Grand Central Station. It wasn’t too cold that first day {day three was windy and freezing!!} and we walked all over just taking in something so new and different.

This image of David climbing the New York Public Library steps makes my heart happy. Traveling with him can be draining and frustrating but it’s amazing to see him rise to the challenge and explore a new city.

Matthias said the ‘inappropriate statues’ in Rockefeller Center bothered him. Too funny!

Steve was teasing David and making him laugh by covering up his face.

Today we fly home and enjoy a couple days before school starts again. I’m looking forward to sleeping in our own beds and not having to navigate huge crowds. I’m all for a quiet morning and a cup of coffee! I’ve got more pics to share of central park and the Empire State Building!
