Rain, Rain, Go Away

This Past Friday the Reddington Family ventured into the Big City. As in New York City. Before going though we forgot to check the weather report. Unfortunately it rained the entire time we were there. On the bright side though I did discover that there are nice people in New York (who'd have thought). Just as a huge down pour of rain came and we were out without umbrellas a very nice man gave us his umbrella because he was getting onto the Subway and did not need it. I was about to tell him that umbrellas can just fold up and be reused for another time but I was so grateful for the kind gesture that I thanked him tremendously and kept my mouth shut otherwise. One of the places that was a must stop despite the weather was FAO Swartz. We arrived just in time for their story time and afterwards the kids got to do some crafts and play on the giant piano. They would have played on the piano for forever and the thought crossed my mind of how nice it would be to have one in the house just to occupy the kids at home. Well for $250,000 I quickly dismissed the idea.

Overall it was a fun family trip and this next week we are hoping to make it to Central Park and if it does rain we have one nice umbrella!

I have always wanted to play on that big piano since I saw it on BIG!!! But I wouldn't pay that either!! I need to come and visit and hang out on that beach!!!

Hey! We're still in the moving process (currently looking for an apartment while staying with my parents), but as soon as we get settled let's get together. I'll show you all my favorite NY things and maybe we'll make you a city lover in the end. I loved your story about the umbrella, by the way. I was dying laughing.
