The six take Manhattan

We don't mess around. Nothing stops us. Not even four kids 8 years and under.

So, we hopped in our car, headed down to the train station and took the 9:13 express train into Grand Central Terminal...

and took over Manhattan! For the day.

Oh what fun!

We rode the ferris wheel inside Toys R Us in Times Square.

We got ripped off by the Hershey company at the M & M store.

but OH boy... were the kids happy!

Took at double-decker bus from Times Square downtown.

Our big mission was to explore two areas of cultural significance for our family.

Chinatown and Little Italy!

which just happen to be two neighborhoods right next to each other.

Bubble Tea. Yum.

and cannolis. Double Yum.

Grace slept through Chinatown for the most part. But, we did manage to snap this one picture. Doesn't it look like we were all in China together!

She LOVED the cannolis. Because who doesn't love a cannoli.

Then we hopped back on the bus. Went to Battery Park to catch a glimpse of Lady Liberty.

and then back uptown to Rockefeller Center and the American Girl Doll Store. No buying. Although K was drooling a whole lot.

Dinner and then back home on the 8:35 pm express train.

Everyone was a little tired. Most looked like this.

and this.

and this.

Except for this one.


  1. I am so stinkin jealous about the cannolis. I can taste them just talking about them. Savor one for me next time... no good cannolis in Sweden.


  2. Wonderful trip!
