The best way to share is with pictures! I decided to break tradition. Instead of sharing chronological photos, I'm grouping them by type. All my photos are in this flickr set. You can click on any below to see the bigger version.

First, the departure sign, then the welcome lady at the hotel, then an Egyptian sculpture:

Their enthusiasm waxes and wanes.

Your ears pop as it zooms up.

The Met, brief tour given by Mom
St. Patrick's by Amanda
Radio City Music Hall - This was awesome, I recommend it!
Extra cool because they were setting up for the Tony Awards!
Our guide, showing us the "Men Without Women" mural. My favorite part was seeing the bathrooms, hilarious as that is.
The Lincoln center tour, here in the lobby of the Opera house. Sadly, we couldn't take photos in some of the best parts. But I got to see a ballet rehearsal on stage and the symphony tech rehearsal.

From across the street, the green jacket is James Franco and his mob of fans.
Chris O'Dowd seemed friendly. Dad wanted a picture for his father, who is a fan. Which makes this even funnier.

Yay! Asleep (in a stroller!) in Central Park

We had to come home a day early, so I didn't get to do Dim Sum or Blue Man Group, but that's ok. I think Sam was done done done. It was a super fun trip.
