I was pretending I was a kid again in New York City this Thanksgiving.
The whole family went to the Big Apple to go to the Macy's Parade.
We went the day before to do some sightseeing.
Where do you bring a 5 year old, a 7 year old, & a 17 month old?
We took the subway to Central Park and went to the Zoo. The snow monkeys made us laugh.
It was dark so we went to Rockefeller Center. It dazzled them with all the lights & the skaters.
Then we went to the Upper West Side to see the preparation of the balloons for the parade.
We all "ooo'd" & "ahhh'd" at their sizes.
It was a REAL test of patience, for both kids AND parents.
Lots of people! Lots of waiting in lines!
Soon lots of feet were hurting, and eyes were droopy.
Nothing is done small in the Big Apple.
