I know I promised that I’d post pictures a few days ago, but I once again got lazy and procrastinated transferring my photos from my camera onto my laptop. I actually decided to do it yesterday, but I couldn’t find my memory card and was in a little bit of a panic because I thought maybe I’d vacuumed it by mistake. It turned out that my father had borrowed it to put the photos onto his computer, so I finally got it back. Anyways, here are some of the photos that I took on my first day of vacation, which was spent in New York City. This was after an eight hour long car ride, so we didn’t do much except explore the city, but the walk itself was amazing.
The highlight of the evening was definitely the walk through Times Square. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a street corner that it that illuminated. It looked just like on tv, with the Broadway and television ads lighting up the whole street.
This was a very cool advertisement from Forever 21. Three of four girls would take turns on screen taking "photos" of the crowd, which they would then shake a few times and hold up to the crowd to see. There was a huge group of tourists huddled in the street taking pictures and watching, getting all excited every time they saw themselves in the photo.
The Broadway show that my sister and I ended up seeing for our birthdays. Amazing!
Stopped off at Gershwin Theater to see where Wicked is performed. I'm really hoping I get to see it soon.
This is the CBS merchandise store, which I took a look at the next day when they were open. They had some really cute t-shirts, like the Big Bang Theory and How I Met Your Mother ones in this photo. I was looking for some Criminal Minds merchandise, but unfortunately all they had was CSI.
We spent a lot of time walking around the Theater District, looking at what shows were playing.
We actually went into this store the next day. It was supposedly for my brother to find some toys (which he did), but my sister and I ended up walking out with M&M pillows.
Rockefeller Center. We didn't have time to go in, unfortunately.
We stopped off at Bryant Park to rest and to let my brother run around and burn some energy. But, of course, as soon as I'd whip out my camera he'd run sit down and look all innocent. He's not even two and he already poses for the camera.
