New York Girls Trip

Allie has been studying the Statute of Liberty at school so she and I took the train up last weekend for a quick visit.  We haven't gotten to spend much one-on-one time with each other lately; it was really nice.

She was great on the trains.  We even accidentally sat in the quiet car on the way there and we didn't get kicked out!


We made it to out hotel and Allie had her first Statue of Liberty sighting.  Except this was a little gold one that happened to be by a bald eagle.


Allie found a little girl in the lobby and immediately started playing with her.  She's really good with little kids.


We woke up to a cool view, then we were off to find bagels.



We took a cab to the 9/11 memorial... 


 Then started our walk to the Statue of Liberty.  It was very exciting.






Pretty soon, we ran into some statues.  Allie wanted to take a picture next to every one of them.


This was titled "eyes"... OK?









We got to the ferry to go to Liberty Island.
 

It was cold but very exciting. 

Once we got on the island, Allie was impressed by how big the statue was in person, liked being able to go inside of it, and she particularly liked the gift shop. We got some souvenir pencils for her classmates then headed back to the hotel for some rest.


Pita chips in bed means we slept in crumbs that night.


 After a little break, we went for a walk to Central Park.  She got a balloon flower at the zoo.


 Climbed a huge rock.


Rode the carousel a couple times.

Played in an awesome sand playground.

 
Walked through Times Square and got a caricature drawn...

Then had a gigantic dessert for dinner.

And then called it a night.

The next morning was a little rough.  We were worn out. 

After a quick breakfast we walked to the American Girl store to get a doll.  

Allie named it All (pronounced "Al") because it is a mini-Allison.


Then we went home.  It was a fantastic trip with my little girl.
