Grown up kids in New York City

(And no, there's no statute of limitation on posting a recap of a trip. Especially a freaking awesome trip like the one I took to New York City in January.)

So my two sisters and my two nieces toured the streets of New York City for three whirlwind days. I get home and I'm flipping through hundreds of pics and I realized: I was a kid for three days. As in...child. As in...the fact that I didn't have to bring children was one reason this trip was so Freaking Awesome. So this was a little confusing to me.

And yet while we were there we couldn't stay out of the very places my kids would have loved. Enjoy!

The wall of M&Ms: Alex's favorite food in the world.

Toys R Us.

Ice skating at Rockefeller childhood dream. More on that in a future post!

The only thing that could warm us up after skating.

My niece fulfilling her candy fantasy at FAO Schwarz.

This dude was constructed entirely out of jelly beans, which apparently live forever.

The Magnolia Bakery...better known as the place where sweet chocolate clouds are made.

I guess we did do one thing decidedly NOT kid-friendly. "Chicago" isn't exactly a fairy tale...

That was so much fun. We need to go
back. It was cold, but the snow was fun, especially walking around in it. rw
