Day 240, NYC with Eliza

One of the best days in my life!  I cannot even begin to describe how much fun we had. The boys stayed home because this was to be a girls’  day, and we had tickets for the play, for which they weren’t interested.  My heart was so full every minute.  Getting all that time alone with the sweetest girl I know was just wonderful.

Here are my shorthand notes from my journal:

“Water ferry – I love it. Subway.  We did it on our own.  Diet Coke to kill time.  Top of the Rock.  How many pictures can I take before battery dies? Walked .9 miles to have a bagel lunch.  Worth the walk, but E and I will never forget it.  Shopped. Forever 21, Macy’s. Couldn’t find Eliza – racks too tall.  Mild panic.  Couldn’t find her any shoes for her tiny feet.  Wicked.  Had me from hello.  Their voices exquisite.  Great back story, have to see Wizard again.  Mozz sticks from McDonalds as walked.  Times Square for the lights, waited for it to get dark.  Worried-  taking subway and walking in dark, but E wanted to see the lights, so did it.  Really proud of us for doing it on our own.  Subway safe.   Ice cream – double –  best yet.  Ferry ride to Battery. Called Dan – met us for long walk to rig.

We did it!  In the dark!  Figured out the subway!  Got over the noise, people pushing (E led like a football defenseman and held my arm), heat and humidity!  12 hour day.  Bliss.”IMG_9421
