A day in the City

There are few places as magical this time of the year as New York City.  The windows are decorated so beautifully, the famous Rockefeller Christmas tree and don’t forget Santa Land at Macy’s.

Ellie had a half day off of school so we decided to trek into the city and the season’s craziness.  Traffic was a bear but the crowds weren’t too much because we were there on a Thursday.

We parked up town and took a taxi down to our first and most important stop- Macy’s.  The hour and 15 min wait to see Santa and Santa land was well worth it.  Heck I think I was just as excited, if not more, than the girls.  There was so much to see along the way and of course the big man himself.

Next it was subway up town…

…to Rockefeller Center and the famous tree.

While there we checked out the flagship Lego store and a lazer light show.

Had cupcakes for a snack from Magnolia Bakery:

which put us all into a sugar rush,

We checked out the windows on 5th Ave on the way up to the Christmas Market in Central Park.

Where we got dinner from the stalls at the market.

At least those of us who could stay awake did.

All in all it was a beautiful magical day.
