|The Empire State Building, in all its foggy glory. Really, quite a tremendous view|
from the top of the Rockefeller Center.
We delighted in the memories made, the colors of fall, spending a whole day walking the streets in the rain with cheap ol' umbrellas, sipping single cup drip coffee on top of Chelsea Market, eating our Hale & Hearty soup, riding bikes in Central Park, gripping our children's hands soooo tight while riding the subways, using the secret stair well that no one else in the hotel seemed to use (who instead waited for the ridiculously slow elevators--we have no time for that people!), sharing a tire swing with a sweet little city girl (they really are hospitable, those locals), making fun of the angry cab drivers (who aren't really angry at all, it's just a way of life, I think), finding the hidden little coffee/pastry shops before the other tourists wake up, seeing my sweet girls enamored by Annie and Mary Poppins, their first Broadway shows, and more. The memories keep popping up, such a sweet time with my sweet family.
My heart goes out to those right now who are having to deal with that hurricane--I can't believe we barely beat it home!
