I suppose this post is both part two and part four of my city posts.
I got a bit sidetracked and never finished posting all of my pictures from our trip there.
That's probably for the best, because I think I was on picture overload
and may have been oversharing.
But there are a few people out there that I thought might like to see the "rest of the story."
My husband and mother being the most likely parties.
Here's something that I learned during that trip.
Wandering around the city with a party of nine, including several teenagers,
does not make for a great photo walk.
The picture taking may have embarrassed and annoyed a few of them,
so I grabbed the shots as quickly as possible.
Check out the faces on these people....
You can practically read their thoughts.
I did, however, get a good picture or two.
This next shot is one of my favorites.
Kid, cab, Statue of Liberty, American flag....
We ate at Ellen's Stardust Diner.
Oh, maybe it's a tourist trap
and maybe it's over-priced, but we loved it.
I worried that the singing wait staff would be a little weird, but it was so much fun!
I was won over by their total commitment to sing and act as though their careers depended on it.
In fact, half way through our meal, our waiter rushed out carrying his portfolio full of head shots,
announcing, "Got to go! I've got an audition!"
It was fun to watch the New York/ Broadway dream in action.
You know... small-town Georgia boy heads to the big city to make his mark on the world,
and waits tables in between auditions, just hoping that someone will notice him.
So, yeah... it was lots of fun.
And they made a pretty mean milkshake too.
