New York - Day 6 (Thursday) My Favorite Day

Rachael, Aiden and I went to The Metropolitan Museum of Art. I have already expressed how I feel about museums.

Aiden, and what I would think should be in a History Museum, but I guess it's art.

My kind of Art. Who knew all those balloon guys were artists.

Then we walked through Central Park. What a BIG park. We passed a fun playground and I saw this fountain in there. You know how much the boy loves water. I couldn't not let him play in it.

Then onto the Central Park Zoo. It made the little guy SOOOO happy. I think this had to be his favorite part of the entire vacation. He misses his doggy friends so much. He was trying to jump out of his stroller to get the goats. I have him on video making the cutest noises. We fed the goats Fruit Loops. (shhh don't tell).

He also really liked the penguins. The glass was ice cold to touch. But he stared at them for a really long time. Of course you can't see any penguins in this picture but there were a lot of them.

There are some monkeys on the rock to the left of Aiden. He wanted to go live with his fellow beings, but I told him I would miss him too much.

At the gift shop I got him this stuffed penguin. Aiden named him "UP." It is his new favorite word, since he always wants to be held. Aiden was throwing him in the street and on the subway, I was telling him, "Don't throw, "Up". " To those who didn't know his penguin was named "Up" they were watching out for vomit.
Then in the evening my wonderful husband took me to see "Wicked." I have been dying to see it. I have always had a sort of obsession with "The Wizard of Oz." Then I read the Wicked book and Loved it. The musical was amazing! I can't wait to see it again.
After the show we rode in one of these neato bicycle taxi's to dinner. It was pretty awesome weaving in and out of New York traffic in Times Square.

My Favorite Day in New York...
