City Sidewalks, Busy Sidewalks

This past Saturday, Scott’s parents came to the city to spend the day with us.  We did a lot of typical Christmas-time in New York City activities…slices of pizza for lunch, site seeing in Times Square, some Christmas shopping and seeing the tree at Rockefeller Center.

I made a new discovery – there is a Fashion Walk of Fame!  Pretty cool.

Times Square.

The Princess Castle in the Disney Store!

Look at that chandelier!

I learned something else new that day.  They now make an Ursula Barbie…I don’t know how I feel about this.

Doing a little street vendor shopping.  It’s a good look, yes?

Luckily, my Mother-in-Law didn’t get the mohawk hat.  Here is Scott sweetly helping his mother with one of her three (!) new hats.  Big spender!

Meanwhile, I was having my first “chestnuts roasting on an open fire.”  And they were delicious.  And they were actually almonds.  But I still savored the Christmas Carol moment!

Here is the Rockefeller Tree.

As we were walking to Bryant Park to show the Fitzgeralds the winter wonderland park, we passed the New York Public Library and ran right into Santa Con 2011.  Which involved many  inebriated Santas, elves, and even a few Gingerbread Men (as in “Not the gum drop buttons!”).

It was quite the spectacle.

On our way back from the shops, we saw this scene.  I guess it was the end of Santa Con.

Later, we got to show the Fitzgeralds our apartment, which is a world apart from how it was the last time they saw it.  Prince took a liking to them!

The Fitzgeralds then treated us to a delicious dinner at a restaurant in our neighborhood.  I thoroughly enjoyed it and would love to go again!  Thank you to the Fitzgeralds for a lovely day!

  1. We had a fantastic time with you and Scott. The apartment looks wonderful, you have both turned it into a home. It was alot of fun walking around NY and seeing the sites, and there were alot of sites to see. We enjoyed seeing where Scott works and it was alot of fun buying from the street vendors and going into the stores. And of course finally welcoming Prince into the family. I’m not a cat lover, but Prince is special and we do like him alot!
