This weekend, I took Bea to NYC with two of my closest friends and their two daughters who are two of her closest friends. The 3 girls are turning 8 this spring and we have made it a family tradition to take each of our kids on a trip alone when they turn 8. Noah went to Utah to visit cousins, Annabel went to Arizona to visit cousins and Bea chose to visit Lady Liberty.
We stopped by Random House to pick up tickets from Suzy's friend, who has the job I want most in my life. She is an editor in the romance novel division there.I would trade spots with her in a heart beat.
The rain did not stop our adventure. We had a late lunch at the the American Girl Doll store. Bea is not a big doll fan, but she loves animals and she acquired Coconut, the AG dog and was happy with that. (which saved me $98)
One of the highlights of the trip was seeing Mary Poppins on Broadway. I wish I had a better picture of Bea and the stage, but the memory is forever in our hearts. Mary truly is practically perfect in every way!
Times Square The girls looked so cute, all dressed up for a night on the town. They are all wearing hair bows from the American Girl lunch. They were wrapped around the napkins.
Headed to China town for some serious shopping.
We spent Sunday going to see the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.
Bea took the only picture we have of the adults together. She's not bad with a camera.
We had quite a wait to get onto the ferry.
Cameron took this great picture of me and Bea.
On our listening tour.
Three very tired little girls have taken NYC by storm.
