New York Day 4

Our last day we had to take it easy. We were exhausted!
We road on the Circle Line Boat around the Island. It was a 3 hour tour. For only $32 it was a bargain!Brooklyn Bridge

Right down the middle of the pic is Wall Street

Ellis Island

Behind the glass arch way is where the WTC stood

Pier where the Titanic survivors were brought to
New Jersey and New York
Intrepid battleship used in WWII
Statue of Liberty

This is the bridge that Sulley flew over and landed his plane on the Hudson River.
He is a HERO!

One night in Times Square

We went to Carnegie's Deli. WOW! The food was great.

Yes, we devoured the pie and cake. OINK!
Brandi and I split the Reuben. We couldn't even make a dent in it.

We saw Wicked on Broadway. AWESOME! I absolutely loved it. If you have a chance to see it, it is a must!
We had such an amazing time. The flight home however was miserable. We finally got home at 3:15 a.m. Thursday morning. That you Lord for answering my prayers and getting us on the plane when we were on standby in Maryland and Nashville.

New York day 3

Day 3 was a long day. It started out at 4:45. We had to get up to make it to the Today Show. We made our first television appearance twice. We had so much fun. We visited Magnolia Bakery, FAO Schwartz Toy Store (not impressed), Tiffany's, Central Park, Dylan's Candy Store (largest candy store), and the list goes on. I have more pics to post but computer is messed up and will not let me at this time. Naked Cowboy

I would never make it in this traffic. I hate Austin 5:00 traffic.
Central Park
We took a carriage ride around Central Park.

New York- Day 2

On Sunday morning we got up, went to Starbuck's and bought tickets for the Double Decker bus. We toured around and got off whenever we wanted. It was awesome. Our favorite stop that day was at the World Trade Center sight or Ground Zero.
After that we went to the Financial District and found this wonderful restaurant on Hudson River. We split Mile High Cheese Fries and had a mango rita. So yummy! We went back the next day to have the same thing.
Statue of Liberty
Along the board walk of the Hudson River we were able to see the Statue

Can you imagine driving in NY traffic?
We loved the double decker bus
