NEW YORK CITY just can't be beat!

I just got home from a short trip to NYC with daughter Anna Maria, her mother-in-law, and her two younger daughters for a visit with her older daughter who is a student at Pratt University in Brooklyn.
And you can't make that visit without some fun in THE big city.

The eating is ALL phenomenal. Evening dinners were at wonderful restaurants: Il Palazzo in Little Italy on Thursday evening; French restaurant Balthazar in Soho on Friday afternoon ; and Spaninsh restaruant Meson Sevilla in Manhattan on Saturday. You can't go to NY without a stop at at least one "diner", right? So we took care of that at Junior's in Brooklyn on Sunday after church. Oh my: all soooooo good.

Of course with a 7 and 9 year old along there was also a stop at an ice cream truck and a sidewalk vender for a pretzel:

We walked by FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology) where we happened upon a museum tour of fashion, featuring displays from Japanese designers. Couldn't resist a photo op of the girls!

And as luck would have it for the youngsters, the Hello Kitty store was right across the street from the New Amsterdam theatre where we all tremendously enjoyed "Mary Poppins".

I couldn't resist this photo in Brooklyn our Sunday morning walk back to the hotel. If there's not enough ground space for a parking lot, just go up!

Not the usual photos of NY, I know, but you can see those in a tour magazine! These are part of MY memories.

I'm sure Anna Maria will be sharing some soon too.

Oh, yes, and on a knitting note: I wore the new sweater that I've made for myself on 3 of the 4 days we were gone!
