Annual trip to NYC
To the airport bright and early and off to NYC. Three out of four days had beautiful weather...the fouth had rain and winds that regularly turned umbrellas inside out. A good day for shopping and visiting the firehouse museum. Monkeyboy and Mippy struggled a bit with homework, but completed it finally. A trip to Battery Park on the subway proved to be...ummmm...a trip! Subway there was fine, but finding a subway back to midtown was a bit of a problem. And the birthday surprise for Bean was great! A special cake at the Cowgirl Cafe with the whole restaurant singing. It was supposed to feed two to three people, but Bean pigged out on her own. Stomp was excellent! Would go there just to see that again. The cab ride back was unforgettable. One of those where you hold on to the seat and close your eyes a lot. A true NYC cabbie. A trip to the airport had Bean feeling a bit under the weather. Monkeyboy and I were outside the restroom waiting for Mippy and Bean. A stewardress (is that what they still call them???) asked Monkeyboy why he looked so sad and he informed anyone within listening distance that his sister was in the stall barfing. All in all....a 95% good trip. We won't discuss the other 5%.
