It was time for our big trip of the year! We were heading to NYC and I was super excited!
Maxi dresses are very comfortable for traveling. I bought this super cute dress at JCPenney and they even had it in a petite size! High 5 for clothes for short people!
Here we are, getting ready to take off! Traveling is so much fun when you have a great travel buddy.
We LUV flying on Southwest Airlines! Just wish it flew into Rapid City in South Dakota and the Pasco Airport in Washington. Can someone make that happen for me?!
One of my favorite parts about flying is the people watching and reading through the magazines in the seat pocket in front of me.
And of course the snacks…haha!!
You can learn some cool stuff from the Spirit Mag such as it used to take 27 hours to make a Peep! Who knew?! Well…now I do!!
And this kind of stuff just cracks me up.
After a brief layover in St. Louis we FINALLY arrived at our destination.
Now to take our first taxi cab ride in NYC.
The taxi ride from LaGuardia to Times Square was around $57. That included the toll and tip. You can pay with a credit/debit card which made it super easy.
The East River – we hear about this a lot when we watch Law & Order.
:: SPOILER ALERT ::
In NYC there are “characters” on Times Square that you can take pics with. They of course want a tip but more on that later. Sad to say but they are just humans dressed up as those characters. What a let down.
But seriously, I wish they would stay “in character” in case a younger kid might see them walking down the street.
But I won’t let that get me down because WooHoo!! We are in NYC baby!
Now time to freshen up, head to dinner and have some fun.
Have you ever been to NYC? What was your favorite part?
