Day 2.346: Mission Accomplished

We squeezed the ever-so-slightly-excited kids and their car seats into the back of the Jetta this morning and set off for New York City.

We decided to drive all the way and park at the American Museum of Natural History on the Upper West Side - relatively easy to get to from the north, and the parking was comparable in price with getting the train from half way down as we did last time. That all went fairly smoothly - and the museum was great, if a little overwhelming for us Upstate country-folks. While we were there E5N1 leaned how to smile like a prehistoric giant tortoise:

When we ran out of steam for museum exhibits we left the car where it was and took the subway to Midtown to see the Christmas lights and window displays. We started at Macy's, then walked up Fifth Avenue, with a little detour through Rockefeller Plaza:

After a cold walk, a circuitous subway ride, a long dark drive and a very late dinner, we made it home safely, but tired. I have a load more pictures - if I don't post them here, they'll probably show up on my Flickr account at some point. For now though it is time for bed.


  1. You certainly seemed to fulfill your three stage plan from yesterday! Lokos like you had a great time as well.

    Happy Christmas Exiles!
