A Trip to NYC with our grandaughters!

I was thrilled to be able to take our granddaughters and their friend Madison, who is the granddaughter of my friend Cindy to NYC recently.  They had wanted to go for a very long time so we decided this was the year.  They were 10 and 12 years of age so just perfect to be enthralled by the flight and the sights in NYC.
We visited the Toys R Us store and rode on the big Ferris Wheel in the store.
We went to see a Broadway play, Mary Poppins.  I enjoyed it as much as they did.  We had perfect seats on the front row in the balcony.  Mary flew right up to where we were.
We went on the cruise boat and saw the Statute up close and personal.  We went to ground zero and the memorial.  We went shopping.....of course.  We went to the Tony Awards and stood outside as the stars came and went.  We went up to the Empire State Building at night and saw the expanse of the city in lights.  I prayed for the people as I circled the building.
We ate cheesecake to our hearts content and went to Carmines for dinner one night where they served family style.......Shrimp Scampi, Caesar Salad and Italian bread.  Awesome.
Best of all we sang and talked and made lots of wonderful memories together.  They had a blast and Nana and I did to.  Thank you Lord for the experience and opportunity to go.
