The day after Christmas, Robbie and the girls and I took the train into New York City. My brother Greg offered to go with us (not to lunch for some strange reason!), and we jumped at that!! He did everything...bought our train tickets, told our cab where to go, met us after lunch, and led the way to Times Square. We SO appreciate Greg!!
We loved seeing all of the signs and lights on Times Square. Ellie was excited to see where they would drop the crystal ball on New Years Eve.
Their favorite was watching a breakdancing troupe that had hundreds of people gathered around. I, personally, didn't see a thing because I didn't have anyone to pick me up!!
At this point both girls were thirsty and cold, so we knew it was time to call it a day. Robbie got snacks and drinks for the train ride home, then we once again followed Greg down to the subway.
The girls were so good about always holding our hands. They never complained about walking (and we walked a lot!) or the crowds. I was super-proud!!
When we got back to Mom and Henry's house, Robert was waiting for us. In one of the girls' tank tops. Mom was worried that Robert would be cold, and she couldn't find any undershirts for him. That would be because we live in Alabama, Robert is the third child, and we don't have undershirts.
