Build a Bear, Fifth Avenue, and Rockefeller Center

Today the sun was shining and the sky was blue...and Macey and I took advantage of it...We decided to skip the subway today...and just take off walking....We walked over to Fifth Avenue, and took a lot of pictures with Macey's camera....which we forgot to bring the cord to upload them with...ugh....James is going to bring it back when he comes...but I still only have cell phone pics....I promise I am going to take my good camera out when James gets here....so he can carry the camera bag-so much to carry, walk around, and try to find where I am going...I just can't do it alone....=) I know-pretty pathetic...I am doing good to find my way around in the city...which is getting easier every day...I am going to be a pro at it by the time the boys get here :) On our way to Build a Bear Workshop...Macey's desicion today....we passed Saint Patrick's Cathedral...It is an abslolutely beautiful building....it was just as breathtaking on the inside....We walked right past Radio City Music hall....and stopped for a few pics here....We just want to remember everything about this trip....so we may bore you guys with all of the pics...especially once I get the Nikon D200 out in the city...Oooohhh....Can't wait....Rockefeller Center....The flags are beautiful...Macey got some really good shots with her camera....I think she may be taking after her mother-with her "photography eye"....Then we arrived at Macey's destination of choice today...Build-a-Bear Workshop....She has done this before, but it has been quite some time...and she wanted to get something special-since this was the NYC Build a Bear....What other than the I love NY Bear....Too Cute!!! I love it...We took lots of pics of her dressing it, stuffing it, and putting it's heart inside...She named her "Alice" after her favorite Twilight character :)...hee hee....
We walked around and checked out a few gift shops, and window shopped at Versace, Sak's, and a few other places...Lots of fun....

Well, the old weather forecast is NOT looking very good for the next few days....Like I have said before, Rain in the city...YUK!!! And if it is pouring the rain on Friday morning...We will not be attending the Jonas Brothers concert....I just will watch them on tv...Macey agrees...We have plans tomorrow to do laundry, and clean the apartment really good...for our friends that will be here on Saturday...;) Like I have said before...it's not very big, so don't see it taking very long...Well, hope everyone has a good night....Love and miss you all....

I love the bear!!!!! We are so happy that you at least heard back from one of the auditions. That is AWESOME!!! Love you guys and we can't wait to see you! I love the pictures of the cathedral. It is beautiful. Don't feel bad about the rain it has done the same here all week and the boys have probably been soaked at camp several times. Talk to you soon!
Love ya,

Yea ! I think I figured out how to leave a comment ! Sounds like you guys had a fun day! Love all the pictures, feels like we are there with you. Hope the Discover Card works out . We are praying for you and glad to hear you are having fun. Living in small spaces has definite pluses, less to clean is one for sure !!! Tell Macey hi for us !

Love, Shannon

We really miss you all and it was great to see James yesterday at Children's Camp. Ian apparently REALLY likes green Hawaiian Ices...because everytime I saw him yesterday (at Wetlands) he had another one. I know you're enjoying NYC, but we can't wait to have you back home.

I don't know if you like baseball or not, but there are two brand new stadiums in NYC (one for the Yankees and one for the Mets), and I highly recommend going to see a game at each stadium, even though I despise both teams. At least the Mets are the mother team for Kingsport's guys.

Keep posting!

Happy to hear you are having a great time with that special little girl of yours. Enjoy each moment. I suvived camp...bearly. I have a few picks of Ian but he hid most of the time whenever he saw me with the camera. He must not have hid too much from Allie because she now has a little crush.
