Today we drove to New York City! After checking into our Hotel and walking around a bit, we headed for the Empire State Building. We had tickets already (the only way to do it or you stand in two lines for hours). After walking past hundreds of people, we headed for the elevators. It was really neat to be up there and see the whole city beneath you. I think it would be even cooler at night. To avoid yet more lines, we walked up and down the last 6 flights of stairs. Also that day was spent walking around times square (where we stayed) quite a bit and doing some shopping (fake Rolexes and imitaion purses and stuff for the kids).
I think the highlight of the day was when we went to see Wicked on Broadway. IT WAS SO AWESOME! I was almost done reading the book and was so excited to see the show. Just in case you are wondering, the book and the show are two completely different stories that happen to have some of the same characters and events. The show is the better story. I don't think I would recomend the book to anyone, altough it is very interesting. After the show we walked through the night life of New York City.
