We Take New York City: Day 1

The day has finally arrived! We are writing this on the plane as we fly over states. I wasn't sure if we were going to be able to take off because the ONE time it snows in San Antonio is the ONE day we take off for our highly anticipate trip to NY. Everything worked out perfectly and I am so thankful. Our best friend, Rachel, so kindly took us to the airport at 4:30am. Our flight to St. Louis was a breeze; we slept the whole way. The views of the city from the plane were beautiful! Everything was covered in snow and looked so majestic. Just what we booked this trip for. Snow.

As our in flight entertainment from St. Louis to NY, Mike and I found the photo booth app on the iPad. I have not cried laughing that hard in a long time. Bonding.

We finally landed and the city was our playground. Our first stop was Central Park. So majestic. I could have walked the whole thing. 

Our next stop was FAO Schwartz. Mike was like a kid in a candy store. Toys every where for everyone. He grew up playing with Playmobil and almost cried of joy when we stumbled upon their collection. 

Thursday night was our night to see Phantom Of the Opera. We didn't have time to eat dinner, so we got drinks at the show instead. Two small glasses of wine were $29. Welcome to NY, Aschbachers. The plus side was that they came in awesome souvinere cups, which we will definitely re-use. 

Phantom was great. Mike loved it and seeing a Broadway play on actual Broadway is the coolest thing. It was a great first day in the city!
