NYC Trip | Day 3
February 11, 2012
Saturday morning we woke up to snow falling in NYC. What a treat, especially since we don't get to see it much in North Carolina. Although it wasn't sticking and didn't even dust the ground, it still brought lots of smiles to Emerson's face. We had tickets to the 2:00 pm matinee show for Mary Poppins, but decided to head to Macy's for a little window shopping first. So after breakfast at the hotel (another perk of Danny traveling so much), we took a cab to one of my favorite (although there are many) shopping spots in NYC.
All the Easter dresses were out in the kid's department at Macy's, Emerson was dying to try a few on. So we had quick, mini-fashion show in the dressing room. I have a feeling this child is going to be a clothes hound or a fashion designer.
After wasting some time at Macy's, we started the walk to the Mary Poppins theater. Emerson insisted on walking atop the subway grates.
We were all pretty excited to see Mary Poppins, although I learned my mom had never seen the movie. I couldn't believe it....it's one of my favorites. Emerson had recently seen the movie with her Grammy and Papa at a church function, so she had it in recent memory. The show was fantastic!!! I highly recommend it if you are headed to the city with (or without) a child. It was so entertaining and fun!! Sorry for some of the iPhone pictures
After the show we grabbed a late lunch/early dinner at Junior's restaurant. My parents had tickets to see Jersey Boys that evening, so they needed to get back to the hotel and change. Junior's was fantastic, great food, fast service and their unbelievable cheesecake. After dinner we went back to the hotel for a quick rest before heading our separate ways. Mimi and Birdie went to the show and Danny, Emerson and I were off to the M&M store and then back to the hotel to watch a movie.
About thirty minutes, three pounds of M&M's and $86.00 to the negative later, we emerged from the M&M store. Emerson picked out lots of colors and these were to be her school treats for her classmates on Valentine's Day. Note to self: always buy M&M's at a regular store and not the M&M store. Oh well, lesson learned. It was fun, and Emerson couldn't get enough of all the different colored M&M's. Another great day in the city....too bad, the next day would be our last!
