The adventure continues. NYC edition.

The boys are so excited for their new shirts!

Watching dad cross the street without us.
He was making sure our car was parked on that block.  
Not abandoning us, as Jack thought.  

Tired.  Tired.  Boys.

Trying to take a picture with the boys at Ellis Island.  We gave up, and it was a solo shot.

We went up to New York this weekend.  As almost all things go, we had planned a few things that didn't happened, but also ended up with some unplanned adventures.  We didn't get to Katz Deli and we didn't have any New York or New Jersey pizza- we did eat in a New Jersey diner and had some street Halal food.  We replaced the boys "I 'heart' NY" shirts, and I picked up a few fun things.  Ben got a parking ticket; even after trying to explain to the parking police that he was more than three feet from the fire hydrant.  We are sad we didn't get to see any of our Jersey friends.  
Overall it was a good time.  We were all really happy to see New York before we leave in a few weeks for Sri Lanka.

My favorite quotes:

Jack when asked if I was cool:  "No mom, you are not cool, you are pretty."

Jack when asked what he wanted for breakfast:  "I want a donut.  With chocolate frosting.  And sprinkles.  No pink ones.  One hundred sprinkles.  Green Sprinkles."

I am sure I said my share of funny things, but I certainly do not want to embarrass myself.

Glad you had fun! Love the pictures! We also went a couple of weeks ago but we weren't able to do most of the things we wanted to. It was cold and our daughter was just not into waiting in huge lines to see things - there's always next time...
