Thanks Tammy! Hooray for possibly having another trip to look forward to!!

We will have frozen water bottles and plan on taking a break each day! We have been before in August so I think we'll be OK! The washclothes sounds like a good idea!

Enjoy Mary Poppins!!!

The Mickey hands are cracking me up!

Hmmm, I love the artwork on the Vacation Planner -- I wonder if that is a valid reason to join DVC...

Mary Poppins!!

We go to Walt Disney World THIS month!!! Woo Hoo!! Can't believe how close it is getting!!



So, yesterday was our big trip to NYC to see Mary Poppins! We had a GORGEOUS day, it was 77 degrees and sunny! PERFECT for walking around NYC!! We woke up and got ready and everyone was so excited. We picked up my mom and Bryan's mom and headed off to the train station! The boys were excited about the train ride!

The boys and there grandmothers waiting at the station!



The boys and I!



A family shot!



On the train heading into the city was about a 1/2 hour ride!



Once we arrived in the city, we walked about 10 blocks to Time Square and headed to the restaurant we were going to eat lunch at! The place is called John's pizzeria and it was featured on the Travel Channel. It used to be a church and it is HUGE!! It has beautiful stained glass windows and a GORGEOUS dome in the ceiling.



The inside...



The dome...



More inside photos..





The food was delicious and very reasonably priced for NYC!!

With our bellies full, we headed out to do some exploring! Our destination was the HUGE Toys R Us! Along the way I snapped a few pictures...







This was really weird to see, apparently the mayor of New York David Bloomberg is trying to elimiunate air pollution on weekends? So on one side of Time Square for about 3 blocks, they had all of these lawn chairs in the middle of the road and people were sitting and having coffee, eating and just relaxing!



We finally made it to Toys R Us...




I have to say that these pictures don't do it justice, the place is ENORMOUS!!

When you first walk in there is a ferris wheel and the seats are masde of all different5 characters and games, it is so cute!!







The store was SO COOL, they all these sculptures made completely from Legos!!











Sorry guys I have to end it here for now! I have to pick up the boys....more later I promise!!

Loved your post and can't wait for more. SO jealous of your proximity to NYC, would love to get there sometime! The pizza place looked amazing. Had to smile when I saw the huge Rich Franklin UFC bulletin board, we are friends with Rich - he goes to our church : ) I'll have to show that to his wife.
I know what you mean about being exhausted, I'm right there with ya, can't wait for Disney - WE ARE SO CLOSE!
can't wait to read all about the show!
