Raindrops falling on my head...in New York City!
We spent a day in New York City this past weekend and despite the rainy weather, we had a really fun time. Last year was the first year we skipped our annual Christmas trip to New York, something about being 37 weeks pregnant and not wanting to walk around a big, crowded city. A few links of just past New York trips. Anthony and I have gone every year, except last of course, since we started dating.
We basically have this trip down to the perfect combination of taking in the sights and chilling out a bit too. After a walk through Times Square, we head to lunch. While we like trying new places, since starting these trips with the kids, it's safe to say that we take comfort in knowing exactly where we will go and what to expect. Namely, is it going to be comfortable for us taking our kids to eat at a decent lunch spot? A favorite restaurant, McCormick and Schmick's, closed in the last year in NYC so went to another favorite, Connolly's Pub. Not only is there good food, but right near everything we want to see too.
The girls were so excited that Zio Antonio could come with us this year. We missed Zio Scott and family though!
After lunch we go visit Rockefeller Plaza, St. Patrick's Cathedral (which is under renovation this year), Radio City Music Hall and then back through Times Square to get back to our car. The rain must have kept other people at home (and dry) so it really was not nearly as crowded as it usually is which worked out well since we had a stroller this year to navigate through crowds.
Last stop this year was Little Italy for hot chocolate and dessert. Delicious way to end an awesome day trip to New York City!
