Hello stamping friends!!
Things are still crazy for me with the kids home for Summer Break. I haven't had much time to do any crafting. Next week we are going to Orlando for a few days. And my Sales Taxes are due for the store. So basically that means that any crafting time is now going to be spent on taxes (boo, hiss).
So I thought it would be a good time to show you Day 2 of our trip to New York City a few weeks ago.
On Monday, it was a rainy day. We knew that it would be so we planned that day for a little shopping in the morning so we could stay indoors. It actually ended up being a mostly nice day.
Our first stop...the huge 3 story M&M Store in Times Square!!
Elvis is a little "blue"...Blue M&M that is!!
The store was filled with EVERYTHING M&M: pillows, stuffed toys, candy dispensers in every shape and form (we purchased a Statue of Liberty Green M&M dispenser), office supplies, suit cases, and even a $3,000 jacket made with Swarovski crystals!! I didn't take a picture but I found one online here.
They also had a "Color scanner". You stand under it and it tells you what "color" M&M you are! Ryan was Silver and Ansley was Pink.
Next up we went across the street to the Hershey's store where they had the "world's larger Hershey's Bar and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups!! I don't know the price of the Hershey's bar, but the Reese's cup was $14 and was VERY heavy!! I bought one for my friend who loves Peanut Butter (let's not mention that Scott didn't know I bought it for her so he opened it when we got home and ate one)!!!
We also went back to Toys R Us and FAO Schwarz but I didn't take picture again.
On our way back to the hotel to rest up for a little, we stopped into the St. Patrick's Cathedral (opened in 1959).
But the kids lit a candle for their Grandma and Papa.
We had tickets to the Yankee Stadium for a baseball game so after we rested some, we hopped on the Subway and headed to the Bronx...
We got there very early so the gates wen't open yet.
Once the gates were opened, we grabbed some dinner and threw a few balls...
Next we made the long trek to the 3rd level to find our seats...
It was raining so we hung out under cover for awhile.
Here Ryan is showing off his "I'm sexy and I know it" pose!!
We took these pictures before we headed to our seats. The field was covered during the rain. You can't even see our seats in this picture, but they were to the left way out in the outfield.
Here is a view of the field from our seats!! We were UP there!! But the funny thing is that we weren't even on the top level!! It is a huge and nice stadium.
Here are some more pre-game photos...
It was "Hat day" so we each for a free hat!! Scott is a Boston Red Sox fan and since they are arch rivals, he wouldn't wear his hat!!
Ansley having some messy ice cream during the game.
I'll leave you with one of the funnies pictures of the day...
I swear I crack up every time I see this picture!! Ryan was trying to "show your guns" so he would be on the big screen. He was straining so hard that he scrunched his face all up and he looks scary!!
Thanks for stopping by!!
