Here are a few photos of our first day of our trip to New York. Of course it was COOOLD when we arrived. And the very FIRST thing we did once checking into our hotel room was....to put on our LONG UNDERWEAR and get ready for the freezing weather.
Hey, what can I say.......we're from Louisiana!!!
These two shots above and below are of Macy's and it was SO crowed and crazy we could hardly stand it....we stayed for an hour and a 1/2 and never went back. I did pick up some earmuffs and a new hat though.
Joshua and Ariel and my husband at the Hershey's store...can you tell Don's eating the "free" samples they gave us of Hershey's kisses?? Look at Don's mouth full of candy!
Joshua and Ariel in the M&M's store.
Wonderful tall lit up buildings around us.
Skaters in Bryant Park.
Me and Don...freezing.
Joshua and Ariel
Very cool fountain in the park...I'm surprised it wasn't frozen solid.
After all this excitement...Joshua and Ariel were frozen and tired, so they wandered back to our hotel and to their room for the night.
But my husband and I who are of course "more adventuresome" and wanting to do all we could in the short time we had in New York....had planned on going to church at "Times Square Church" that evening.
So we did.
And I'm so GLAD that we did because the service was FABULOUS!!! It was their "Christmas Choir Concert" that night and it was wonderful!
We were sooooo tired and nearly could have went to sleep in the service even, but I we were extremely encouraged and uplifted in our hearts during the entire time we were there and after wards. What a great place to visit while in NYC.
I'll pick up with those photos and such on my next post.
I must go now because I have to go to the Doctor today........it's time for my once a month "IV" treatment
Stay tuned...more to come!
