I took a Girl's Trip with Jan, Ellen and Martha Jane (my mother-in-law and sisters-in-law) during the first week of December. This was my Christmas gift from Jan and Mason.
We left on Friday morning and returned on Monday night. We saw The Lion King on Broadway and The Rockette's Christmas Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall. Both shows were incredible! We toured the city by jumping on and off Gray Line Double Decker Bus Tour. It was easy to navigate and we were able to cover so much ground without having to pay for taxis. We went to see the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, Little Italy, China Town, and Macy's. We shopped and shopped and shopped some more. It truly was magical seeing New York at Christmas time. The lights were amazing as were the many department store windows.
We stayed in the heart of the city at the Crown Plaza. We were within walking distance to so many things. We were only there for a few days, but we got to see and do all that was on our must see/do list. Jan was the planner of the trip and did a fabulous job. I told the girls I was along for the ride and I was up for anything. It was so nice to go and not have to plan a single thing. Martha Jane was great at looking at maps and figuring out where to go. I don't know what we would have done without her.
Thanks Jan for the trip of a lifetime! I loved being in New York with three of my favorite women.
**picture overload-my blog book would not be the same without these pictures. These pictures were taken by Ellen, Martha Jane and myself.
