Snaps from NYC

New York City is the same fantastic wonderland every time I am there. The best part of our family trip this past Fourth of July was sharing it with my daughter for the first time.

Here are some photos from our visit. Enjoy!

Arriving at my best friend Alexis' apartment. Don't we look like we're moving in?

Good morning, New York!

Tanking up on buttermilk pancakes and bacon for breakfast. Then off to our first destination: the top of the Freedom Tower!

Breathtaking! (These views convince me that New York City is our world's Coruscant. Fellow Star Wars nerds, you're welcome for that reference.)

Family portrait from the top of the world:

Alexis and the kids take cute selfies. And Caden does one of his favorite things of all time: photobombing!

Izzy's first subway ride (she loved it!):

Enjoying some down time in Central Park.

Getting together with our LA friends, Melvin and Lila, who moved to NYC from California nine years ago. I think you can call them New Yorkers now!

We had to introduce Izzy to the craziness that is Times Square. As you can see here, she's amazed by it all!

Waiting for fireworks in Brooklyn:

Manhattan from the East River. Three photos. Same spot. 

Hope you and your family had a fabulous Fourth of July!!
