Easter in NYC

25 April 2011

Since it was just going to be the three of us for Easter this year we decided to do something special and go in to NYC to see a show -- Madagascar the Musical.  Here we are getting ready to leave.  It turned out to be a very warm, sunny day.  Quinn took along his binoculars and a bubble blower from his easter basket.


Our first stop in NYC was lunch!  Don has been perfecting the homemade veggie burger and we wanted to check out NYC's finest.  At the top of the veggie burger list was a restaurant called Hillstone's which is part of the Houston's chain.  They claim to make their veggie burgers fresh every day.  It was huge and it was delicious.  Probably one of my favorite veggie burgers to date.   Don's extra long arms captured this family self portrait.    Quinn spent a good portion of our lunch counting and naming the vases you can see in the background.


After lunch it was a 10 block walk to Radio City with a couple of pit stops along the way.  We ran across this huge yellow teddy bear art installation that will be auctioned off in May.


Don's neck got a real workout yesterday with a 40 pound boy on his shoulders for most of the walking.


We came across this restaurant with mini jockeys lining the stairs and rails.  It's the 21 Club.


Then it was on to Radio City.





Don and I gave the show a big thumbs down but Quinn enjoyed it.  Of course everyone's favorite part was when they sang "I like to move it, move" which is the theme song for the movie.


Overall a very fun day for our little family on Easter.
