New York Adventure, Part 1

Last week we went to a big big city for a visit. We didn't even get to play with our new toys for a whole day, but as I told daddy later, "I'm glad we came."

Boarding the Northeast Regional in Westwood Station
Waiting for the big train

Ooh... fast
Oooh... fast. I am clutching my ticket to make sure I don't get kicked off.

We got to our hotel but the room wasn't ready yet so we hit the town. We walked a few blocks and came to the Children's Museum of Manhattan.

Aki is happy to be driving the bus. Next stop, puppet show!

Owen wiping his hands
After the puppet show, I used the potty. Here I am getting paper towels to wipe my very wet hands.

Aki loves the slide
Aki left the puppet show early but she loved the slide

More blocks?
I played in this little block pit. Is this enough?

Maybe that's too  much
Maybe that's too much!

Steering the truck
Later I got to dress up like a fireman from my Big Frank Firetruck book

For dinner we went to a Chinese restaurant named after one of mommy's friends. Noodles are always yummy. We didn't do too much on the first day, but there's lots more for day 2!
