It’s NYC y’all.

We just returned from our first trip to NYC.
The shadows at sundown
The roofs, that scrape, the sky
The rich and the rundown
The parade goes by…”
Ahem…sorry. Can’t help it. I’m an Annie fan.
Trite, I know.
Anyway, where was I… Oh, yes, our first trip to The Big Apple…the city that never sleeps…the greatest city on earth. Uh, huh. I’m 42 and this was our first trip there.
And we drove.
From South Carolina.
With our children.
A tween and a teen.
A boy and a girl.
I love them and they love me.
And that’s all I’ll say about that.
So we drove. But not only did we drive from home north of the Mason Dixon line, but we drove in NYC.
With our SC state license plate glowing like a neon sign.
Skirting oblivious pedestrians.
Avoiding imminent danger and sure death from reckless cab drivers.
As Sean John gave us the fist of strength, powering us on.
Sure we drove straight to our hotel, and parked, but still…it’s NYC y’all…The Big Apple…the city that never sleeps…
Oh, never mind.
But n’er another SC license plate in site toodling around the city y’all. And, get this, not only did Randy drive (that’s how I took the pictures) in the city once, but I drove.
Yes I did.
Early Saturday morning four friends, Alice, Kristen, Robyn and Shari accompanied (and navigated) me out of the city for a day trip to PA for the Big Summer Potluck. (A fabulous time – thanks Three Many Cooks and Ivory Hut!) And sure, Saturday morning traffic is dead, but still, it’s NYC y’all.
Then we had to come back. In the city. NYC. Again y ‘all. And we’re all alive and well, and I didn’t hit anything (I think) or anyone. And I don’t recall any gestures thrown my way. Except for that fist from Sean. But that’s cool. By the way, I want one of those hip sweatshirts dude.
So there. If I can drive there, I can drive anywhere.
Except maybe Shanghai.
But I’m not planning on going there anytime soon.
I hate driving! I would of never survived. Good job! So glad you had fun!!
So glad you made it there and back again (hey, I think that is from Lord of The Rings LOL). I knew you would come home with some pretty amazing shots and I was right! Can’t wait to hear more about your trip.
If I would have been with you I’m not sure if I would be in the back seat curled up in a fetal position crying “I want my mommy” OR hanging out the window watching for gestures (that I could return) but either way I’m glad you made it and had a good time!
I love New York!!!! I took the train there though. You all are very brave! 🙂
Glad you guys had fun. I love NYC. I was there last month with my husband and we’re palnning to go there in January! Great pictures!
You are very brave to drive there!!
And how do you get such sharp pictures?! They are amazing!
