New York, NY (Thur.9/20)


M&M world... well, maybe not the hottest stop on the NYC tour, but, they've got chocolate – and how. The boys picked out their favorite M&M color and each got a smashed penny.

Central Park

Central Park is amazingly large. There's a lot of people who run around the park, but we walked less than half of its length and took a bus back, sigh...

We rented a bat and ball and a Frisbee. The boys climbed rocks, got soaked at the water playground, and spun around so much on the whirlee-bird that they almost lost their M&M's (which, by the way, are all the same color at this point). We like Central Park.

Metropolitan Museum of Art

I missed most of Met as I was getting Mary Poppins tickets and I didn't get any volunteers for filling out this part of the blog. The brief summary: it was good, real good, especially the ancient Egypt section.

We may not have had a Dirty Water Dog from a street vendor, but we did have a cockroach visit our lunch as we ate in front of the Met.

Mary Poppins

I've always wanted to see a Broadway show but were a bit short on pennies (regular and smashed) and long on fake $10 bills, so Kim and our most theatrical boy Elan made it to the show.

When I heard we were going to see a musical on Broadway, I was really excited! (I've always wanted to see something on Broadway.) The time went by so slowly until we got on the bus to it. Once we were inside I looked around the theater. It was amazing! Many cool designs and carvings on the walls. I can't even explain how cool and interesting it was. Then it started. I didn't know what to expect, but if I had an expectation, it was underestimated! It was the best thing with music I'd ever seen/heard! Every song was amazing and very well put together, including new songs; “Practically Perfect”, “Temper, Temper”, and “Brimstone and Treacle”. Then there were the original songs; “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious”, “A Spoonful of Sugar”, “Chim Chim Cher-ee”. I loved every moment, especially when Mary Poppins “flew” over the crowd. The actors were great as well. I had a great time! -Elan
