Ryan Adam's song, New York, New York, played through my head the 36-hours that we inhabited NYC. My twin lived in the city and loved it but I wasn't a huge fan--didn't think I could "do it", especially with kids.
(apparently Cutie Cakes will only look at the camera for me
if she is instructed to show me her tongue.
Makes for stellar pics)
We ate genuine New York pizza on the rooftop while enjoying the sunset, the views, and the conversation with old friends. Cutie Face and her new-found friend, Talia, hit it off and hung out with us the whole night--until nearly 11! Crazy late but such is city life, eh?
the main reason she was able to stay up so late?
eating two slices of this delicious homemade Build-a-Bear cake!
ahh New York
I'll still love you :)
