We had a wonderful time in New York City this weekend celebrating Elizabeth’s 11th birthday. We took her two best friends (and their moms) on the train, on a reasonable shopping trip to New York’s flagship “Build-A-Bear Workshop” store on Fifth Avenue (including lunch at the “Eat with your Bear Hands” Café), and then hit the Nintendo Store at Rockefeller Center. It was exhausting, it was fun, and it was fabulous. It was memorable in the extreme.
New York City is a wonderful place that, like San Francisco, breathes with its own life. I'll miss it when we're back on the West Coast.
