Trip to New York City


We decided to get out of Syracuse for a day. You feel a little trapped here with all the snow, so we headed out for the weekend. It was a little on the cold side, but it was so worth it. We had a ton of fun! I love NYC; there is always something new to see. We had to bundle Cassidy up like a burrito. Surprisingly she stayed like that without throwing a fit. She realized how cold it was without all the layers, and she too was happy to be out of the house. As we were waking by Time Square, we spotted Elmo. I was excited thinking that Cassidy was going to love seeing him; however, when we got closer she saw him and started to scream. I was surprised by her reaction. I should have known that she would have said he was too big. The rest of the night she kept saying, "I don't want to see Elmo."

We were able to go to church Sunday morning which was cool because the Manhattan ward has their meetings in the Manhattan temple (same building). So we were able to go inside the temple to go to church.

We went to a huge toy store that Cassidy loved. Wish we could have been able to afford something in there. We picked up a tiny stuffed animal half the size of a hand, and it cost $50.00. Cassidy also loved ridding on the subway. She thought it was pretty fun ridding on the big trains. I forget how much there is to do in NYC. We could have stayed there all week and never got bored. I guess it is a good thing it is only 4 hrs from were we live.
