We finally got our act together and did some of the things we have been talking about doing. It's about time too, because Mom is leaving tomorrow night.
Yesterday we went to the Captain Lawrence brewery for a few samples.
We also got a couple of growlers filled to go with our dinner.
This morning we convinced Mom that she couldn't come all the way from Alaska and not go into NYC, and took the train into the city.
She liked the train ride.
We had lunch at Lombardi's.
We stopped by the 9/11 Memorial, which is beautiful and extremely sad at the same time.
And checked out One World Trade, which disappeared into the clouds.
Our last stop was the Holiday Shops at Bryant Park. They just opened this week, so we had perfect timing!
We had fun looking through the shops, and I got the waffle I was thinking about all day. If you go to the Holiday Shops, look for the Wafels & Dinges cart and get a Liège waffle. Tom and I get ours plain, but they have all kinds of toppings you can get too.
As a continuation of our super healthy eats for the day, dinner is going to be Chinese takeout. What? We're on vacation or something. ;)
Have you been to NYC? Do you like big cities?
