in our church monday nights are reserved specifically as family time. we called it FHE or family home evening. for FHE today we went around NYC on a double decker bus tours... but before that we found our day starting on the subway once again... this time you can see that mom was a little on the happier side than the day before... yay!
we perused times square... went around here and there. jackie and i revisited one of our favorite childhood stores... Sanrio. but this was called sanrio luxe. its the only "hybrid" store of its kind in the world. i bought olivia a hello kitty new york photo album to put her pictures from our trip in... and drum roll.... one of those old school plastic wallets that i used to beg my parents for as a kid. sweet!
later we went to madame tussauds for some smoozing with the celebrity wax figures. Liv loved it. we "met" n sync, bono, jennifer lopez, whoopi, george clooney, michael jordan, etc.
