I couldn't be more excited for this year's holiday season. We get to see Caroline next week for Thanksgiving. And, then a couple of weeks later, we will surprise the kids with a trip to NYC. Picking them up from school on a Friday.....driving to LAX.....and flying overnight to the mecca of all holiday fun......New York City. We'll stay 3 nights and then fly back late on Tuesday.
We have many things planned, but I want to cover everything.
Here are some initial stops:
Circle Line Tour (to get a broad picture of the island, see the Statue of Liberty, etc)
Serendipity for hot chocolate
Tea for Lainey and Mom at the Plaza
Empire State Building or Top of the Rock
This will be the majority of Christmas from us. We're on a tight budget, but I know we can make it memorable. And, I love that the kids have no idea. They'll each get their own carry on suitcase (no fee to fly with those!) when we pick them up from school. We are still debating as to when to tell them.
When we pick them up?
At the airport?
At the gate?
Would love some input!
I am beyond excited to have my sweet family in the city for 4 days of fun and exploring.
It's what we do best!
