Fabulous New York

Well, we had a WONDERFUL time in New York. I don't know if I have ever walked that much in my life, but it was worth it. I am so sad to report that we didn't make the cut on the Today show. We did get there at 4:30 am, but I guess we just weren't special enough that morning. Matt Lauer was doing his Where in the World series, and so the time they spent outside was limited. But, it was fun to say we did it. And... we got to see Meredith, Al, Ann, and Campbell Brown.

We saw A Chorus Line, ate at Tavern on the Green (where we saw Kelly Ripa), took a walk through Central Park, shopped 'til we dropped, and managed to see some of the great tourist sites that NY has to offer. My favorite place we went was to McSorley's Old Ale House. It is NYC's oldest bar and is great. It is everything you imagine a hole in the wall pub to be in NY. I will go back for sure. They only serve beer, and you have to order it light or dark... no bud light or anything like that.

Here are just a few pictures of our travels. My camera decided to malfunction and tell me the memory was full after just a few pictures. So, I am waiting on everyone to share their pics and I will post more at a later date. Enjoy!

Heading out to Time Square on day 1

We ran into the Oscar Mayer Weiner Mobile on our walk to the Today Show... couldn't resist a photo op!

The only three dedicated fans that made it to the Today show at 4:30am!

Al giving us the brush off at the Today show. I think I am going to watch Good Morning America now just to boycott the fact that I didn't get on TV!

Campbell Brown... the girl needs to eat a cheeseburger!

Tavern on the Green

Kelly Ripa & her children standing outside of Tavern on the Green. I don't think they ate... not sure she ever does. They looked like they were about to go for a carriage ride.

Central Park

Hollie & I with the soldier outside of FAO Shwartz on 5th Ave.

Take that Sly.... I couldn't resist. This was post McSorley's Old Ale House :), so with the extra beer energy I decided to give Sly a fun for his money!
