New York Trip

We had a fabulous surprise Spring Break trip to New York for Logan.  He loved everything and was so excited to be there!
My previous posts on the trip explain most of the things we did, but here are a few more photos from my camera instead of the iPhone.
Logan enjoys watching the tv show, Jessie.  On Jessie they had one of these state of liberty characters.  He was excited to see one in Central Park.

 By far Logan's favorite thing was the Statue of Liberty....we thought it would be.  He tried to see it from the plane, would ask where she was relative to our position in the city, etc.

 With our tickets we were able to go to the pedestal and through the museum.  We did not decide to take our trip far enough in advance to get crown tickets....hopefully next time.

 We rented bikes from Battery Park and road over the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges and then up to Central Park.  Biking is such a great way to see the city.

 We pre-arranged to meet Logan's 4k teacher, Mrs Traci.   Logan and Mrs Traci have always been really close and share a very special bond.  To this day, she is still his favorite teacher.  We met she and her son, Owen, in Central Park to play and then went to her church, where her husband is one of the pastors.  We really enjoyed hearing him preach.
 We also spent some time at the Natural History Museum.   All three of us loved it.  It was incredible. We also did the planetarium show, Dark Mater, which I highly recommend if you are going to be there.

 Logan is so strong he is holding up the whale.

 Grand Central Station!
 Top of the Rock....with the Statue of Liberty in the background.

 Right before leaving town we walked the High Line.  It is a park on an old elevated rail road area.  It was pretty fun.

 Logan sitting in one of the seating areas on the High Line.  They had some pretty cool different areas.

A few awesome things not pictured in this post.
-We saw Matilda the musical.  It was fabulous.  Preston and I both think it is one of our top favorites and we have seen lots of broadway shows.
-We went to the Whitney.  Preston was so excited to be there for the Biennial and Logan loved the HUGE elevator they have there.  It was definitely the largest I have ever seen.
-We took a few bus tours and learned some neat things about the city: 14,000 cabs, 31,000 police officers, 18,0000 firefighters, the most expensive room per night is at the Four Seasons for $21,000., Brown Box homes sold for $500 in the early 1980s and how they go for about $3,000,000.
-We met our friend Mrs Judy and her family for dinner at the famous John's Pizza.  We knew Mrs Judy from our trip to Lebanon.  Logan really attached to her on the trip and when he saw her again he attached immediately to her again.  We also had the rare opportunity to have a tour through the Bloomberg office where her husband Tim works.  It was great spending time with them.
