New York!

FINALLY after 4 years of living only 2 and a half hours away from New York, we made the trip to the big city! Eric decided to take the day off work on Friday and we were planning on only going for the day, but at the last minute decided to pack an overnight bag just in case! So we ended up staying over and spent two days there which was necessary.
First day Pictures:
The Craziness of Times Square
A random chair display/art (I guess)
John's Pizzeria! Tasty, and really cool inside. Too bad I didn't take any pictures. I was too busy chasing Sierra around since we were seated by a cool staircase and she was obsessed with trying to climb them the whole time.
More craziness
Um, I forget what this statue (monument?)was for
Eric wanted a picture with the late show sign (cute)
He also wanted me to take a picture of this globe (also cute haha)
The tired little baby
This picture cracks me up because after we took it and after spending a decent amount of time sitting by this fountain, Eric informed me that he thought we were in central park.
Not so.

On a pretty bridge in central park
Sierra LOVED this AstroTurf area in central park and spent forever running around on it
In FAO Schwarz in the Madame Alexander Doll Factory (you know, those dolls Tori Spelling's mom always gave her for her birthday and wouldn't let her play with? lol)
Sierra with her new dolly

The cutest little book shop! Sierra did not want to be held down for a picture. She loved running around here.

A cool Tiffany's display. Too bad the store was closed by the time we got to it. Who closes before 8pm in New York? Lame.
The Empire State Building
The end of day one. We didn't find a hotel until after 1am and I didn't fall asleep until 4am because my legs were throbbing from all the walking. OH and because Sierra was hyperventilating when we tried to put her in the pack and play and got up screaming several times in the night. Apparently she hates sleeping at hotels. Other than that the hotel was nice and there's just something about staying in one that really makes it feel like a vacation!

how fun! I can't believe you are that close! Sierra is getting so big. Her little face is so sweet and precious.

Yeah!! I LOVE New York, I'm so glad you finally got to go! I'm sure it was so fun, and I loved that you went to the "Cake Boss" bakery. That show cracks me up. Next time you go, persuade the in-laws to watch Sierra, because although taking kids is fun on some trips, you and Eric should go do New York yourselves without having to adhere to bedtimes, naptimes, etc. Or better yet: go with your mom or sister, that is even more fun! (But don't tell our husbands.) Oh, I miss the East coast!

Thanks for sharing your new york trip! I loved it, it makes me want to go back! Looks like you had a blast and I am sure Sierra did too even though she is a kid in New York. People are so cranky I swear! But it would be fun for you to go there without. I want you guys to move here!!

I love all the pics. It looks like you guys had a blast. I'm so glad you packed an overnight bag. I was wondering how you were gonna drive there and back and fit everything in in one day. lol.
