NYC 2013-Day Two

It's amazing the benefits of a great night sleep. Hubby and I usually hate planning trips for the sole reason of crappy beds. Our hotel room actually had a firm bed. Hallelujah!!

We started off with breakfast in our room. With the groceries we had gotten on Day One, we were good to go.

The only thing on the schedule was Wicked at 2pm*. We set out to see everything in the general vicinity of The Gershwyn Theater.

Hubby navigated the subway like he had been there a hundred times. We came across a Five Guys burger joint and decided to stop for lunch.

We then came across one of the sweetest place on earth. We found the Hershey store in Times Square. The smell was so sweet as if chocolate was oozing from the walls. Of course we filled a bucket with our favorites.

Next we saw the M&M/Mars store and saw M&Ms in every color imaginable.

Finally 2pm was calling and the curtain came up. To everyone's excitement, it fulfilled every expectation we had. We were close enough to see every expression on the actor's faces.

After Wicked we were able to see Radio City Music Hall, FAO Schwartz and the NYC Apple store**. We came across St. Thomas Episcopal Church, and we were blown away. How could anyone not walk in and not feel reverence for the one, true God? We reached the south end of Central Park before deciding it was time to grab dinner and catch the train back to the hotel. And nothing says dinner like McDonalds***.

I'm not sure I've ever walked so much in my life. But it sure beat Day One.

*Just thinking about it still, I hear the soundtrack in my head.

**Look who I'm married to. Of course the Apple store. Good grief. There were MILLIONS of people in it.

***I was shocked at how much it cost the four of us to eat in NYC.
