    I wondered about train ride.and how long it took to NYC.Thanks for telling us that.

    Iam dying to Take trent there and he would love it on the train, being a huge fan of trains.

    That pizza place is gorgeous.

    That is a riot abotu the lawn chairs :laughing:

    Was it hard for the boys the 10 block walk to pizza place? I have a feeling trent would whine about....hate to bring it, but maybe bring a stroller...:sad2:

    That Toys R Us looks awesome. I so want to go there :woohoo:

    Can't wait to hear more popcorn::

    Wow, that pizza place looks amazing. I haven't been to NYC for 20 years. How lucky that you live close enough to take advantage of all that it has to offer.:thumbsup2 We feel that way about Chicago.:)

    What a great day so far. Those lawn chairs are cracking me up. I have been to Toys R US, but boy would my kids love it! Glad you had good weather too, NYC in the rain leaves something to be desired, especially in downpours! Waiting for more...

    Hi everyone! Sorry for the delay in getting this posted, I had intended to do it last night but I was so tired and had so much to catch up on here at home!! OK onto part 2!!


    So we left off in Toys R us, after the Lego's, we saw this giant dinosaur..

    [​IMG]

    lifesize Star Wars Guys...which Eric loved!


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Then Superman!

    [​IMG]

    After Toys R Us we headed back to.....M&M world!!! The boys each got a SMALL bag of candy this time!!


    [​IMG]

    They stood on this m&m plaque on the floor and it tested their color mood and what it meant! It was cute!

    Here is Eric's...

    [​IMG]


    Then Matthew's...

    [​IMG]

    After M&M's we decide to head over to the theater as it was about an hour before showtime!!

    [​IMG]

    This is a sign they have out front...

    [​IMG]

    The boys and Grandma being silly!

    [​IMG]

    Then they let us in! The theater was gorgeous! Very old and beautiful!! Here are the kids waiting in the lounge area..

    [​IMG]

    We bought them drinks and then headed into the theater! Bryan wanted to get a Bud Light for the show but it was $10 for ONE BOTTLE OF BEER! So we skipped that!

    Inside the theater you are not allowed to take video or pictures, but I took just a few!!

    The show was AMAZING! We had the understudy playing Mary Poppins but you never would have known, she was INCREDIBLE!! The scenery and sets were outstanding and SO COLORFUL! The children who played Jane and Michael Banks were OUTSTANDING. I was so impressed with their ability to memorize their lines and their voices...HOLY COW they were AWESOME!! There are some very COOL features that I don't want to spoil for those of you planning to see it but my eyes just about POPPED out of my head!! The boys absolutely LOVED it and they were so well behaved...unlike the children in front of us!:rolleyes1 The mom was texting on her phone throughout the performance! SO RUDE and the kids kept getting up and talking! Finally my Mom said "excuse me, but your children are talking and my grandchildren can't hear or see" So the woman turned to her kids and said "shut up":scared1: The kids were good after that but I felt bad for them! Anyway, OVERALL it was PHENOMENAL! Go see it if you can it was terrific!!

    After the play, we made our way back to Penn Station and headed home! Here is Eric reading his showbill....

    [​IMG]

    Once we got back into NJ we had to walk through this tunnel and the kids told me to take a picture because they thought it looked like inside Space Mountain!

    [​IMG]

    What do you think? We had an awesome day! It made us even more excited for Disney which is getting closer and closer! thanks for reading!

    Mary Poppins sounds wonderful.:goodvibes So does the M&M store. Yummm.

    Go Grandma, protecting her grandsons. Some people's rudeness is astounding.:confused:

    Tell your boys that they're absolutely right. That tunnel does look like Space Mountain.:thumbsup2

    Forgot to mention that the blocks between Penn Station and Time Square are pretty short for city blocks! It wasn't too bad! A stroller is a good idea though if you thought he might get tired! I don't know what the rule is about strollers in the stores though:confused3

    Wow...that looks amazing! I might have to find a sitter for Ernie so we can take Amelia. :) I think she's ready to sit through something like this now.

    I love your NYC updates :cool1:. I have never been to that pizza place but it's on the list now. We love that Toys R US, it's so cute and Kaylee loves that Ferris Wheel. Sounds like you had great weather for walking around the city. Mary Poppins sounds amazing!! I want to see it it's my favorite Disney movie and I can't even imagine it on Broadway. Your trip is getting so close, just over two weeks :dance3:.
