My mom is arriving tonight, and tomorrow at the crack of dawn we are heading south to NYC... Despite having done her fair share of traveling, she has never been, and we've been planning on taking her there for a looong time. Like, years. Her excitement is fantastic.
It will be fun to explore the city, all four of us. LP has already told her he would show her "everything," which she thought was quite funny (I suspect his definition of everything mainly includes taxicabs and toy stores). We will attend the Easter parade, of course. We went two years ago and loved it, although LP who was only one slept in his stroller through the whole thing. He'll certainly be more interested this year, and has a hat just for the occasion.
My mom additionally wants to go to Macy's (I have a feeling I'll have to stop her from buying everything from the Martha Collection) and Saks. We'll go to FAO Schwartz, and probably pay a visit to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. If possible, we may even try to go to the Statue of Liberty -I've never been, and the boat ride and view could be fun. The weekend will probably be a little more touristy than usual, but she wants to see it all, and of course we'll oblige! It greatly helps that the weather forecast is wonderful, sunny and summer-like warm... I can't wait!
Happy Easter and have a great long weekend everyone! See you back on Tuesday.
