Next Up After the MoMA

I knew that while we were in New York City on New Year's Day that there was another thing I really wanted to see aside from the MoMA ...

Hmmm, now what is that big thing that everyone wants to see when they come into New York City at Christmas time?

I'm pretty sure I've seen it on TV before - especially when we're watching the Today Show at work in the mornings.

Lots and lots of people flock to the City to see it - and I do mean LOTS of people!!

I know! It's the Christmas Tree in Rockefeller Center! Something that I had never seen in person before the other day and I've got to say that it's very, very impressive!

The girls didn't seem to be quite as impressed as I was but they were nice enough to pose in front of the Today Show studio windows for me as - yes - I can be just as much of a tourist as the next guy even though I try real hard not to act like it!
It's just a good thing that Matt, Meredith, Ann, and Al weren't in attendance at the studios or I probably really would have been acting like a tourist - a goofy one at that!

  6. It's on my bucket list to see that tree and the skaters. Esp. in the evening, but I doubt I'll get there anytime soon.

  7. Being touristy is fun. Who wants to be jaded, worldly wise, and aloofly above it all?

    Good Dr. Who Part 2 review.

  8. I tried going to see the tree a few years ago but there was SO many people there that it was impossible to really see much of anything.

  10. Did Sami grow her hair out? I think she's the same girl I'm thinking of-she looks super cute! I think I already told you that I love Amanda's hair now too...yeah, I did. In the picture of her on the day you went to the art school.

    Very cute girls!!!
