at the Macey's Thanksgiving Day Parade!
We dressed the children for bed, loaded the car and took off at 8pm on Tuesday. Drove through the night, 14 hours to Angie and Camerons'(Devin's older sis in Pennsylvania). We left later than planned and as we bussled around the house packing, this is what Naomi did:
Cache slept like a log for 8 hours. Naomi, jabbered for most of the night.
We recovered and slept the day away Wednesday and ate and played with neices and nephew.
Thanksgiving day, we woke up at 4am and headed into New York. Even that early, we wouldn't have found a good spot, Luckily we had the CUTEST couple in the whole city saving us a spot...
Devin's cuz Elisabeth and her husband Tyler.
That is a spot that we could elbow our way into at least. New Yorkers don't allow you to "save spots." It's a eat or be eaten type place.
Luckily there was a little alley way behind us that they could play around and throw the football a bit while we waited the hours for the parade to start. The rest of us held our ground,talked and observed all the fun people in New York.
This is Cache's crazy new smile... seems like most kids develop on of these within some point and time. He is either, scowling or doing this crazy smile... Oh well still stinkin cute. Love him.
I am so annoying with my camera.
I want to take pictures of everything.
I can't help it.
Cassidy really, really had to find a bathroom. A clean one is not an easy thing to find in the City.
Santa Clause was my favorite part of the whole parade:
After the parade, we took a stroll through Central Park...
I love this next picture. Cache was a little obsessive about Dakota, and Dakota was really nice to him all week. Cache had to sit wherever Dakota sat, sleep where he slept and do what he was doing...
Central Park is GORGEOUS. Really, movies don't do it any justice. I could have taken pictures all. day. long.
Then we went and visited the giant toy store FAO Schwarts... That was incredible. Every child's dream.
We walked down 5th avenue. I really want to go back and shop the streets there.
Then we walked by the temple. So cool.
I took a picture of Julliard for you Ash.
After lunch we took the Stanton island ferry, to see the Statue of Liberty. Very cool.
Cache was looking forward to seeing the Statue of Liberty, and was very excited. Thus displaying his new wierd/cute smile.
