Seeing New York-Central Park

I actually thought I had already written a post about our trip to Central Park. But I couldn't find it so I guess I just thought about it and wrote it in my head.

A few weeks ago I told Evan I wanted to take Blake to FAO Schwarz (which is the equivalent to Toys R Us on crack. I mean, they have a place where you can create your own muppet. Your own muppet, people!) and then take a little stroll around Central Park. I know Blake won't remember going, but I thought it would be fun. I'll be honest, most of our outings are for me, not Blake or Evan. I just feel like I have to go see things because I'll regret not doing it if we ever move.

We walked around an insanely packed FAO Schwarz for about 45 minutes. I should have known it was going to be insane because it was a Saturday and other people go out and do things on Saturday too. At one point I got separated from the boys. I had to call Evan and ask him where he was in the store because I knew if I went to look for him we'd keep passing each other and never meet up. (What did we do before cell phones? I guess you could have people paged, or walk around for hours looking for them.)

After the toy store we 1) looked for a place to eat, but settled on a pretzel from a street vendor and then 2) walked around Central Park. It was really beautiful. The park is so huge we probably only saw a fraction of it.

The New York City Marathon was taking place the next day so Evan and Blake got take part in their own little way.

I think it'll be fun to go when it warms up and have a picnic!
