Day 3 in New York City started quite early…
By 6:30am, we were all awake and searching for a place to grab breakfast on Urban Spoon
We settled on Sarabeth’s
Ok, overall, this was a more expensive breakfast than the day before but OMGosh!!!
The food was delicious and our server was efficient, polite, smiling and cute!
Jon had the eggs benedict for $18 with a side of bacon!
Look at that side…. that’s an $8 side of bacon that’s actually worth $8
I had a spinach and goat cheese omelette with a scone $15
And Emily had the best Pumpkin waffle ever!!! $16
Soooo good! We all had a bite, she added syrup to it and ate the whole thing.
We had coffee and were not rushed to leave the table when we were done!
Overall a great breakfast experience.
With our full tummies, we hopped on the Tour bus and started exploring the city
We hoped off the bus at Time Square and walked around. We explored and I took pictures.
Sidewalk mascots who will grab your child for hugs and pictures than show you their tips purses…
I paid this time and kept all the others at bay…
The Ferris wheel at Toys R Us. Emily and I got the Barbie car!!!
Emily, Madison (the doll) and me in front of Madison Square Garden…. where all of Justin’s fans stood one day before his concert!
Can you see the grumpy starting to happen on Emily’s face?
We continued to walk around, looking for the Hello Kitty store which we didn’t find at this time…
As we kept looking, it started to rain and that combined with our lack of luck in finding the Hello Kitty created a really grumpy girl.
That’s when Emily had her second meltdown.
She stood in the rain and cried, I moved us under cover and tried to calm her down but it didn’t work.
We waved a cab and went back to the hotel where we could put some dry clothes on and go down to the food court to grab sushis for lunch.
We bought a salmon mousse, a salami, 2 cheese, crackers, some fruits, veggies and humus… That was going to be our dinner later!
We also bought some macaroons! A new experience for both Jon and Emily.
They each had a dark chocolate ganache in the middle which wasn’t what I was expecting so my family wasn’t really excited about them. They were still good just not what I wanted them to try for their 1st time.
That afternoon, we went back on the bus and did the full city tour without hoping off again.
Look at my movie star!!!
We saw tons of things and I am not going to put all the pictures up but we had a great time.
Once the tour was done, we grabbed a hot-dog from a street cart and enjoyed it on a bench.
Than we did something I am not all that proud of but…. we only live once right?
We went back to FAO Schwartz and bought candies…. $76 worth of candies! And a bacon lip balm! 🙂
We went back to the hotel, showered, turned the tv on and set-up our feast of cheese, crackers, veggies, humus and more… Once we were done, Emily started working on those candies…
2 weeks later, we are still not done eating them!
By 9pm we were all asleep, getting some rest in order to be top shape to tackle day 4.
I grew up in “the city”, in Brooklyn. Hope you enjoyed it. You’ve officially have seen more than I have… 🙂
And I still have to tell you day 4 and 6 :).
