Took the family down to New York City this past weekend and had a whole lot of kid fun. First stop was the actual subway. My 9 year old leaned over and wispered - "Why is nobody talking?" I had to explain that they didn't know each other and they were just traveling to go to work. ;)
Got off at The Natural Museum of History. Gorgeous butterfly display as well as bones, animals, artwork - it is a great museum. Then we walked the 40 odd blocks over to F.A.O. Schwarz. The next day was Time Square and all that glitz of M&M's and ToysRUs. I do think one of the best parts was then going into Chinatown for lunch. Great people, fun to see the different types of stores - dried/salted foods. Two days and the boys wanted to do more, luckily we had great weather as well. I love traveling with the family.
