When I found these 3 girls on Jennifer's porch dressed like this and each holding a kitten, I had to run get my camera before the moment is gone. Can't you see them sitting on a porch together in 70 years or so! Of course with Julia too, who was not there for the shoot!
The cat Hope is holding is her Kellogg (not to be confused with April's Kellogg.) She loves loves loves this cat, and if I liked cat's even a little bit, I would let her keep it, but I just can't do it! Hopefully Nenny will decide to keep it for her!
Hugging frogs in the Museum of Natural History
He was pretty sure this was a pirate ship.
This was the man at the information desk at the Empire State Building. Only, you couldn't get any information from him because he was literally on the phone for 20 minutes
The wooden escalator in the mice infested Macy's. Seriously there were mice everywhere. I had to leave! But John was very impressed with the very old escalator.
All the plasma screens in the NBC store
Me with the old ball and chain.
The piano from the movie BIG in FAO Schwartz.
At the top of the Empire State Building
Isn't he cute?!
The view from the top
"And that floor better shine like the top of the Chrysler Building...or your backsides will!" 5 points if you can name that movie!
A Church on 5th Ave...
That's right. It's our good buddy Eddie Murphy again! I swear he was following us. Look for us in his new movie "Starship Dave." We'll be walking in to the Apple store just before he does...
Our view from our Hotel's Terrace Club. It was so awesome. We were on 51st st. between 5th and 6th ave. Right between Radio City and St. Patrick's Cathedral, and about a block away from Rockefeller Center! It was perfect!
John really wanted me to hold this flag while we were eating in Little Italy...the things I do...
This is a song from the Broadway play that John and I saw while in New York. It was really funny, but a little obscene! It was basically Sesame Street for adults, but we couldn't believe some of the things they said! This is actually the most tame of all of the songs! If you are brave and want to hear some more, go to youtube and type in Avenue Q!

John with his favorite dinosaur...
Lady Liberty. It really was so cool to see this. I didn't expect to be so impressed by it!
View from the Staten Island Ferry.
Yes, we did all the cheesy tourist things, including renting a row boat in Central Park.
John's Highlight of the trip. We saw Max Lucado filming in Central Park. Actually John heard and recognized his voice before we saw him. Someone from his staff was very nice and came to talk to us, and snuck us over to meet him! He was so very nice. I am even more impressed with him now. John has read almost every book the man has written, and listened to several of his things on tape (which was how he recognized his voice) Hope also has quite a Max Lucado collection.
Our first Eddie Murphy sighting. In Central Park. Click on the picture to enlarge it. Look at the bush like tree in the middle/left part of the pic. In front of it you see a man and child. He is the man. In front of us are a lot of his people keeping us crazies away.

I really am sorry. I have heard from enough of you that I feel guilty, so here I am. We have had a great couple of weeks, with the highlight being my sister's family coming to visit Memorial Day weekend. We hit Six Flags on Saturday. Hope was a chicken again on the rides! She barely rode anything. We bought season passes on the way out, so we went back on Monday. Hope was a little more brave and rode a few more things. I have been really stressed lately, so it's been nice to go to Six Flags and feel like you are a million miles away, but it is right in our backyard. We actually have been 4 times now since that first Saturday!
