So, even though my parents live in PA, we’re only a few hours away from New York City. There are lots of fun things to see/do there, so we drove up and toodled around for a while yesterday (Sunday). We began the day at the Museum of Modern Art, specifically so we could see the Water Lilies triptych by Monet. Then we wandered through Times Square for a while, did some looking around, shopping, and sightseeing, and then went to see the Blue Man Group live off Broadway. We ended the day at Serendipity III, trying out some of their famous frozen hot chocolate. We drove around afterwards so we could catch a glimpse at the Statue of Liberty, and made it back home sometime after 3:00am. It was a very full, very fun day. Another little photo series, photography courtesy of my amazing mom.
Below: Christine viewing the monumental and gorgeous Monet triptych (three-paneled painting), “Water Lilies.” This was one of our biggest reasons for going to NYC in the first place, and definitely our biggest reason to drop into the MoMA. So, so, so beautiful. I think we all could have sat there and looked at it all day.
Below: Me in the MoMA, next to a wall of soup cans painted by Andy Warhol. I’m not sure they have this much Campbell’s in my local grocery store.

We went to see the Blue Man Group, but they for some odd reason don’t like photography of their show. 😉 So nothing much to see there.
The following two pictures are especially for Kirk Bryson. He told us we had to do whatever it took to get to some place called “Serendipity” and have some of their frozen hot chocolate. Not sure how you could have chocolate that was frozen and hot at the same time, and not even sure where we were going, my dad did some quick research on his blackberry and we found it. We went to Serendipity III that night and had some… and oh my goodness, he was right. It was really good. The first photo proves we were there and the second photo proves our order of beverage.
