Christmas in NYC

We headed to NYC this weekend to see the Christmas sights.  We had done this last year with Janet & Vinnie and planned to do it again wit them this year.  In addition, this year's plan was to have my mom and Eric join us.  Unfortunately, Janet & Vinnie got sick and couldn't make the trip.  And we decided it may just be easier to take only Evan and leave Eric home with Deedee & Pops.  And I'm sure it was nice for Evan to get our undivided attention for a day.  We started out visiting the different window displays:
In front of one of the Macy's windows:
Shoulder ride by the Empire State building:
The NYC Public Library has a beautiful tree in their lobby:
Next it was off to Rockefeller Center to see the tree and ice skaters:

A very cute family photo we were able to take ourselves.  We had two different strangers try to take the picture but Evan would turn his head every time.  So we had to do take it ourselves with the iPhone in order for him to smile (and bribe him with chocolate):
After visiting a very crowded FAO Schwartz and lunch at a local pizza place, we headed into Central Park for some rock climbing:
Evan had a blast on the rocks:
And one last really cute family photo in Central Park before heading back to the train:
We had a great time and will likely continue to make this an annual tradition.
