New York~ Day 4

We started our 4th day in NYC with brunch at Max Brenners. Max B is known for his speciality chocolates. The menu felt more like a dessert menu than a brunch menu, which isn't a bad thing. I ordered the apple cinnamon and white chocolate truffle cream french toast. Yum....




Next we went to the Time Warner building for a photo shoot. I love vacay photo shoots and I love it that these girls love them too. Have you noticed that guys never want to take a ton of photos, maybe a few and then they're ready to move on? We were at the Time Warner building for an hour, just taking photos.


After the photo shoot, we went to Central Park for a horse and carriage ride. It was such a pretty day.







Next on the itinerary was the empire state building. We purchased our tickets online to bypass some of the lines. We definitely had a great view of the city from the observation deck. However, I had to leave the observation deck before the other girls. I started feeling sick and queezy. I'm kinda (but not completely) scared of heights.







After the empire state building we headed to Times Square for dinner at a small deli and more photos in Times Square.


My sis and I had a pretend "sister fight" in Times Square. If you have a sister, you know the kind of fight I'm talking about... pulling hair, scratching, screaming, and slapping. For the record, we haven't actually had a fight like this in many years but we do bicker. We thought our family would enjoy these photos. Jenn emailed the photos to our parents and brother. I don't think we got a response. Ha Ha.

And the next minute we love each other and all is forgiven... a true sister fight.


Jenn drinking wine from a little bottle in Times Square, we're so classy.



We ended the day at Rockefeller Center and watched the Saks Fifth Avenue snowflake light show... very cute!

White chocolate truffle cream french toast…mmmm! The photo shoot pics at the Time Warner building look so nice and I think that it’s fun posing with girlfriends for fun photos. I love your headband btw!

I haven’t been on a carriage ride in so long, but it looks like a lot of fun. I’d love to do that in NYC. Some of the photos you got from the top of the Empire State Building are fantastic. What a view! Times Square just amazes me. It looks like the future or something.

The snowflake show looks very pretty!

In this wonderful life... said...
