Christmas in New York part 2

Here is the last piece of the puzzle... well at least our New York trip. Find part 1 here!


On Monday of the trip we headed to Liberty and Ellis Island. Paul said this was his favorite part. He took the camera from me so a lot of these are his. But while we were there, we were able to look up some of my dad's family who came over through Ellis Island.

like I said, Paul was having a great time being in charge of the camera, he is a natural.

After getting back from the Islands, we went for lunch at Gray's Papaya. Always wanted to eat there ever since seeing Fools Rush In.

That night we saw Jersey Boys on Broadway. But not before going to the most amazing pizza place right off Times Square. It used to be an old church that they turned into the largest pizza place in the city. It was gorgeous.
nice smile from my husband haha



After the show, we walked around Times Square and Rockafella Center then had some cheesecake!
Paul and dad wanted to be "that" guy!



Kelly was strong that night, held up that ball all by herself!

The next day we went to a nearby Library by Bryant Park and then took the subway to the Natural History Museum in Central Park. After that Paul and I had lunch with his cousin at this cute sandwich place (New York is filled with these amazing delis that I love) and then we all met up at Ground Zero to see the new memorial.





Paul and Kelly felt left out haha!




subway fun!

That night we went to Serendipity. Of course there was a long wait so we put our name down and ate at the diner down the street. We did this last time we came to New York and it really helps the time go by faster. The dinner was great and then we had an amazing and filling dessert. Paul and Matt went to a comedy show so there weren't able to stay at Serendipity that long. It was a great last night in NYC.


yum!


A great Christmas trip with the family!
