Elizabeth, Mark, Emma (age 11) and Andrew (age 8) spent three wonderfully fun days with us in New York in October.  It was exactly two years from the weekend that we had come to NY in 2011 to celebrate Elizabeth’s 40th birthday.  We had such a great time that we decided then that we needed to come back for an extended stay.  Who then would have guessed that our dream would come true….and just two years later???

Here are some of the things we did with the Murphys in 2013 in New York City with lots of photos:

Subway rides, Statue of Liberty, lunch at Katz’s and dinner at Arturo’s, Imagination Playground at Seaport, Crazy Eights, Go Fish, bagels from Tal Bagels, late night freshly baked cookies, Empire State Building, Times Square and the show “Annie”, Lego store at Rockefeller Center, American Girl Store, FAO Schwartz, Sony Wonder Lab, Central Park, Museum of Natural History, Murphy’s Pub, buying scarves and hats from street vendors, chocolate egg creams
