NY - Thanksgiving 2011

We had the pleasure of spending Thanksgiving weekend in NY Midtown as well as in Long Island.  We had so much fun.  It all began with our itinerary arriving via email!  :-)  Thanks for all the planning Grandma. All I have to say is it worked out beautifully and was fantastic. We all had the best time ever! The kids didn't even squabble.
NY here we come!

Itinerary

Photos - Night 1 -   Alan and Heidi to Book of Mormon - very funny and irreverent, but funny. After the show we roamed around Times Square.  Mom and the kids to Mary Poppins.

Off to dinner at Shake Shack Drinks at "The View"  48 stories up and rotating room to see the city view. My cutie pie acting tough, on the way to Book of Mormon Hanging out in Times Square Stage setting for Book of Mormon, so pretty Alan had to say high to the horsey and NYPD, since he was wearing the had he had to buy while there

Thanksgiving Day!  To our surprise, the Macy's parade was right out of our hotel window. We watched for a while in the warmth of our room and then headed out for breakfast. We then decided to go back to the room and then catch the rest of the parade outside LIVE!  It was perfect timing to see the last few floats and Santa.  It was quite the chore to get the kids up on shoulders, but we did it.
We bumped into Santa in our lobby Fun times at a beautiful hotel Here comes Santa
Just Roaming the city stopped by Grandma's office, Rockefeller Center, and more

Black Friday - Hit the City again road the subway, checked out the Empire State Bld., looked at the shop windows decorated for Xmas, and St. Patrick's Cathedral. 

Then the boys went to The Lion King (Loved it!), while the girls headed to American Girl Doll! (Loved it!)  I have to say we all had a blast.
