New York.. Day 1

Ok, so as I looked at all (548) of my photos from NYC..
I decided that I might to a day by day review of our vacation!

This is PDX as we were taking
off! ugh! I don't think I have mentioned
how hard it was to get to the airport..
I drove 8 hours!!
It should take about 3 from my
work but a snow storm hit
the afternoon before we left!
I LOVE the snow but em a huge wimp
when it comes to driving in it!
all I can say is
she gets me where I need to go!

As were were just about to make
our decent into JFK

This was crazy to Dylan and I
they just seemed to go on and on..

$350 fine if you honk!
as soon as we got to our hotel
{Lowes Regency, VERY nice
great location!}
we set out to explore the city!

FAO Schwarts
it always fun to act like a
kid for a little while!

made of legos!

the BIG piano!
we were going to wait to
play it... but the average age
of a person in line was about 6!

the SMURF section!
yep, they remember these little guys!

The big star on 5th Ave

Dyl and I are BIG apprentice
people.. so this was a must!!

The Tree inside TRUMP tower

waiting for a table at TRUMP
we needed TRUMP cocktails!

The Tree at Rockefeller

Empire State Building

Saks 5th Ave!
they have a light show with
the snowflakes that they do
with Christmas music!
A girl has to love a store that
has its own zip code for the shoe

The pretty tree @ Rock

the night before the
blue moon!
