The Big Apple Tour

So close and yet so far…in traffic!  We made our way for a the short drive to NYC via the Holland Tunnel, with everyone and their uncle…cousins, aunts and friends!

Must be headed the right direction, don't need the GPS for this drive...

The Sky Line


After safely storing our boards and paddles at Reg’s house–Thank YOU, Reg, for your board-saving kindness!!–we got to venture out into The Big Apple with our expert tour guide and subway navigator:  Kelly’s Dad!  He still knows his way about the complex, and boy are they complex, subway tunnels, tubes, routes, etc.

Have tickets, will travel...the NYC Subway system. Michael, Mia and Kelly's dad.

American pride is apparent all over NYC.

The art in the subway in amazing and beautiful.

Times Square alive with lights and people *everywhere*

Lights, camera, action!

Mia's favorite part, Toys R Us in Times Square--4 floors!

Black and Whites from Zarros Bakery!

Grand Central Station--always a bustle and hustle.

Kelly, Mia and Michael in Grand Central Station.

What an amazing, energetic and great memory of NYC for all of us.  Kelly’s dad took us to Times Square, Toys R Us (the best part for Mia), Grand Central Station and Zarros Bakery for Black and Whites.  For Michael and Mia it was all a first, for Kelly it brought back many wonderful memories of being in NYC as a kiddo with her mom and dad.  Thanks, Dad, for a fun and memorable trip about NYC!
