This is, for sure, one of my favorite pictures of Lila, Miles, Mari, and Cole taken in the middle of Times Square on the first day of one of our family vacations to New York City. We’re native New Yorkers, and when we were living there, it was way too hokey to get caught doing the touristy thing. That’s for, like, tourists. But then we all moved South, and when we visited home for the first time, we lost our natural born minds doing all of the most touristy stuff we could horse carriage rides through Central Park, ice skating and a visit to the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center, a romp through FAO Schwarz, (window) shopping on Madison Ave., lunch at Serendipity, and a ride up to Harlem on the A train. The best time of all, though, was watching the kids cut up in the middle of traffic in the busiest, loudest, brightest, tallest, most famous intersection on the planet Broadway and Seventh Ave.

New York, New York!

    LOL! they look like they are having the time of their lives! I did the same thing with my husband when we visited NYC together for the first time. i dragged him to every tourist spot I never got to go to when I summered there as a child. we even walked from the upper west side all the way to the financial district then crossed the Brooklyn bridge! of course we took the train back uptown. :-0

  3. I just love NY. I so missed my chance to live there. But, no long sighs here. Missing that chance hasn't stopped me from bringing a piece of the Big Apple to me! I'm still on my grind though.

    And, I just love the look on Ms. Lila's little face. 🙂
