A Day in NYC….

This past weekend we ventured in to NYC with the kiddos. What were we thinking taking 2 little ones to walk the streets of Manhattan in 18 degree weather?? LOL!  The main purpose of our trip was to see the International Motorcycle and Boat Show at the Jacob Javits Center. Again, I ask myself, why are we going? We already have both a Harley and a new boat.  Yes, some of you that are thinking…she rides a Harley? Well, I used to ride on the back before we had kids. I have not been riding since I had Christopher.  And just another tidbit that might shock you…I have tattoos. Quite a few of them : )

Here are a few pics of the skyline was we approached the city.

Driving through the city can be very frustrating. The streets are mobbed with people at all times. But you know what, I miss it. I used to work right across the street from Macy’s and it was great to go shopping on my lunch break. The hustle and bustle of it all was exciting to me.

The actual motorcycle show was okay. I thought there would have been some better vendors and more custom choppers.  The kids were pretty good considering. Of course they needed to sit on every bike.

Does this guy look familiar?? It is the Geico gecko and the custom bike the Paul Jr. (from the TLC show OCC) built. The bike was really amazing in person.

After the show we headed to Times Square to do something ‘for the kids.’ I knew they would enjoy going to the new Disney store or  to Toys R Us. As we were walking…there were some surprise guests on the streets. The kids were so excited.

Can you see the ‘2’ Elmo’s and Spongebob?

This was the highlight of the day.

You never know that a day in NYC will bring : )

Stop back tomorrow for Fun Phone Photo Friday……

I have never ever been to NYC. Maybe one day, but I think we'll go without kids, unless they are way older :) These pictures were a lot of fun!

I've never been to NYC, always wanted to, just haven't gotten there yet. I hear the big city is scary, anyway... ;O)

Looks like great fun! Is it sad that my kids recognized the Geico Gecko more quickly than Elmo and Spongebob?

A motorcycle?! I knew you were family, lol!
But guess what? No tats here...
I bet the kids had SO much fun!

I love going into the city, but I HATE taking my car in! Luckily I live very close to a LIRR station so that makes it a little less stressful for me.
Last time I drove in I almost had a nervous breakdown! lol
