We spent a wonderful few days in NYC recently with our family enjoying the Christmas season. If you want to read about our visit last year it is here

Connor wanted to see the Plaza, where a lot of the movie Home Alone was filmed. It was just around the corner so we popped in for a visit. 

Rockfeller Center

Bryant Park

An evening out with Linda, a TTT friend and her husband at Bar 65 was a very happy occasion and happened to be my birthday celebration. Nice!
I am saving the pic of us for a later post!

I thought Jim's dessert was so clever, The Big Apple was a cheesecake!

Everyone enjoyed NYC windows!

Saturday night we took Connor to enjoy a treat at this amazing little sweet shop and restaurant, Serendipity, where many movies have been filmed. Needless to say, he loved it as much as his Bama!

 And, we did take in the show at Radio City Music Hall. The Christmas Spectacular! 

The last thing we did, a carriage ride in Central Park. Connor loved it! 

This was such a special trip for us, to enjoy the sights and sounds of the city with family. Stop by for a little Christmas home tour in a few days. 

I love your comments and read all of them. Hope you will leave a comment, it is the only way I know you stopped by.

  4. There is nothing like NYC at Christmas time. Where did you eat that served that apple cheesecake?
