  1. Wow – what a fun vacation everyone seemed to have. New York is definitely the place to play and learn. Hesh and I spent a quiet day in Philly with Yoni and Aviva. Nice to have alone time with them.

  2. What a wonderful family outing. I loved that amazing sculpture in Central Park, and it looks even better with your children all over it. πŸ™‚ The pretzel is almost as big as Maura! πŸ˜†

    • Thanks Sylvia. I should have shown Jack’s face after having dropped his pretzel on the ground! It was a fun time. My sister lives here so that makes it possible although their mom and dad stayed in a hotel while we camped with the kids. Made for an exciting time!

  3. Love these photos! They are just super special!! What a fun and educational trip!! We had a nice day with the whole family! Thanksgiving is a nice holiday!

  4. Oh how wonderful, all these photos all over NYC!! THE TREE is up and in place at 30 Rock!!!! Guess light-up-night will be sometime this week!!!!
    What fun to have a GREAT-Aunt who lives in NYC!!!! πŸ™‚ XOXOXOXO

  5. I love the standing in line picture. I know Alice is internationally celebrated, but somehow it came as a jolt to find there is a sculpture of her Stateside. She seems so essentially English. And I do mean English, not British,

  6. Proof that there’s so much more to Thanksgiving than a bird. Loved the shots, Ruth, especially the silhouettes in line at the museum.

    • I didn’t mention it but my sister’s new oven (after waiting 8 months for it) did not work on Thanksgiving. No gas. Got out computer and found out how to Cook a Turkey on the Stovetop. My son said it was the best turkey he ever ate, so moist. Carrot, onion, celery on the bottom of the covered roasting pan, an 1 1/2 inch of liquid simmering, oh my. Of course I had purchased the fresh turkey at Ottamanelli’s Butcher Shop on Bleecker St. How about that adventure?

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
