My daughter, Bethany, is currently living in New York City.  Her birthday was last week so my husband and I headed there to celebrate her birthday as well as enjoy the city.


Getting There

I LOVE trains so I've always wanted to try the Acela Express from Boston to New York.  Our train left at 6:20 a.m., and we arrived in NYC at 9:45 a.m.  Plus, we watched a beautiful sunrise:


Times Square ~ The Reese's Store

My sister, Nancy, and her daughter, Lauren, met us in Times Square on Saturday (they live in West Hartford and took the bus).  Our first stop = the M & M Store!  Then we visited the Reese's Store ~ our maiden name was Reese so we posed with our namesake products (unfortunately, we're not related):

Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum

On Sunday morning, we visited another Times Square attraction - the Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum!  These wax figures are quite life like (some more than others!).  This was my first visit to a wax museum, and some of the figure's eyes seemed so real that I was getting scared!






The Parisian Woman ~ on Broadway!

I LOVE going to plays!  Uma Thurman starred in this amazing production, and it was an excellent production!  My husband declared that it was the BEST play he'd ever seen!

The High Line!

On Monday (our last day), my husband and I strolled along the High Line near Penn Station:

As much as I enjoyed being in New York, I'm very happy to return home to my "ordinary" life here in Massachusetts!  Plus, I'm on school vacation this week which gives me time to recover from our busy weekend in NYC!  


Thanks for visiting the blog today!

  2. What a fun trip with your family! Despite the fact that NYC is so close, I haven't been there in about 25 years. I find the city a bit intimidating. I've always thought traveling by train would be neat. Thanks for sharing your trip with us!
