More Summer Fun! New York City!

It seems to be becoming an annual thing.  My husband Todd and I celebrate our wedding anniversary by taking the crew to New York City.  We’ve done it now at least 2 years in a row.  This year was awesome, it had to be as it was our 10th anniversary! Our boys LOVE LOVE LOVE traveling into the city.  Between the train ride, the sites, the sounds, and all of the fun who could blame them!The train ride takes about 2 hours.  Our biggest concern is who is going to be able to sit near the window.  That usually works itself out.  They manage to figure out how to take turns or they just make room for each other.  The chatter is non-stop as these two ooh and ahh over every little thing they see.

Of course Joyanna is coming to an age where she wants in on the action too! Fortunately a good snack can still keep her pretty occupied.  We dole it out slowly, over the course of nearly the entire trip!

Our biggest plan for this particular trip was to spend a great time at the Intrepid Air and Space Museum.  We belong to a local museum that affords us the opportunity to visit museums across the country for free.  This was on our list of places we had to visit.  The boys relished the sights and sounds of such a big ship.  The displays of helicopters, air places of over shape and size, and space artifacts were just amazing.

The Intrepid museum is one of the few chosen to be home to one of the recently retired NASA space shuttles.  Space Shuttle Enterprise will soon land in New York City.  You better believe we’ll be planning another trip to check that out!

The day is a long one.  It was awful hot too.  Especially on the deck of the Intrepid.  Poor Ezra had about all he could handle and lost it for a few minutes.  Luckily he wasn’t upset for long because just after we finished our tour we hopped the subway and landed in Rockefeller Center home of…. THE LEGO STORE!

If you know little boys at all you know that they adore Legos.  I’d say my two are particularly obsessed.  I hear they take after their Daddy and Uncle Tyler.

The day was coming to an end.  We picked up some dinner and then headed back to the train station for the trip back home.

A sweet end to a perfect summer day.  We can’t wait until next year!  Thanks for reading!


  1. So glad everyone had such a fun time in the city! Do you guys only make it down once a year? I always think of CT as pretty close to NY.
