NYC! I've been wanting to go to NYC for forever and it finally happened! Living in New England we only live 2.5 hrs away... which is insane since I would drive that almost daily going into LA everyday for work. Our best friends from Canada met us there for 3 days and it was the perfect little trip. The weather was amazing the first day, like I was actually pretty hot wearing my sweater and then the next 2 days got cold and windy, but it was still fun. Since we both have little ones, we kept the trip pretty relaxed and didn't push to see too much. We went to the National History Museum, saw the Statue of Liberty, walked on the Brooklyn bridge, played at Central Park and visited The Met.
Right when we got into our hotel Juniper brought Peppa onto the bed and made herself right at home, full diaper and all.
The National History Museum was HUGE and hot, so we kept it simple and went straight to the animals and DINOSAURS of course. lol Juniper was in heaven and was saying "roar" the entire time. Daddy was pretty excited too :)
Not the most flattering but our only group shot with the dinosaur above!
There's the tiny Statue of Liberty! It was SOOOO cold and windy that day that we saw it for five seconds and kept walking to get out of the wind!
From there we walked down Wall St. to the Brooklyn bridge. It gave the kiddos a chance to sleep which is always the most important thing of the day!
When traveling with all Canadians, you can always be sure they'll find the best poutine ;) It was seriously so good!
At The Met!
Van Gogh! His works were so breathtaking.
Our last day there we took Juniper to Central Park, which was only 5 min from our hotel. We took it easy and let her play, she loved it.
There was this giant slide that Juniper really wanted to go on, she wasn't scared one bit and we were bad parents trusting that she could go on it alone...we forgot she was only 1.5 yrs old. We left her boots on and they got caught on the slide and she turned and almost fell off...yikes. That was scary for us, but she still wanted to go on it so we were extra careful.
