New York was both fun and exhausting. I am glad it was my last trip for the year. Ended this year of travels in a great place. As I mentioned in a previous blog post, I am just grateful I got out before they didn't let anyone out anymore. The city was just beautiful. Central park was the best. Honestly. I couldn't get enough of it. Sad to know that with the damage of Sandy a lot of the parks don't look the same anymore - so I had to share the beauty of NYC as I was able to enjoy it.

|These girls are the best and totally made my trip awesome. Thanks Alina and Kate for being the best!|
|One night we made reservations at Max Brenner. Best choice. They are famous for their chocolate everything.|
|This was my chocolate peanut butter ice cream sundae. So good. Honestly. I loved it.|
|So Kate and I were exploring the city one afternoon and she introduced me to Juniors Cheesecake. Fantastic.|
|We stopped here: The Mall in Central Park. We ate cheesecake, watched leaves fall, and listened to a sax. Magical.|
|My iPhone doesn't do justice to just how beautiful all the fall colors were.|
So the picture below represents an interesting experience. So Kate and I had walked from my hotel to Grand Central station. At this point, I was exhausted. My pregnant body just needed a break. We tried forever to find a taxi but were failing...miserably. We just don't have the gift I guess. Anyways, as we were trying to hail a taxi this bike taxi guy stops. He asks if we need a ride and we hop in. We asked him to take us to Central Park. He took us on a bike carriage ride through the city. It was awesome. We thought we might just die multiple times but it was an adventure. As we get out and I go to pay I realize just how costly this fun taxi ride has been. It cost $117 for a bike ride from Grand Central to Central Park. We couldn't stop laughing out to shock and horror mostly I think. Good times.
Thanks NYC for the fun times we had. Who knows when I'll be back again but all I know is I am glad to be home.
