NYC Days 5, 6 and 7

I am wondering whether or not to keep posting about NYC because it doesn't really seem to be of interest to anyone. I'm hoping that's just because everyone is so busy with trips and summer plans that they aren't sitting home reading blogs. I'm going to combine the remaining days into one post.

On our way.


On Monday we went back to the Museum of Natural History. There are really cool mosaics on the subway walls leading to it. You can actually exit the subway into the bottom floor of the museum.



Jasmine was interested in the Native American instruments.



We found this guy who is from both  "Hop" and "Night at the Museum." 

We made it a game to get the Princess book into our pictures. We also tried to find creative places to read it together  each day.
I told her to try shooting from a different angle.


Hall of African Animals

Yep. This is where we had our devos.

After the museum, we went out and walked around town for a while.
On Monday we went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. We did the audio tour, but didn't see nearly the whole thing.





We found the instruments!


This saxophone is 6'7" and weighs 40 lbs. Not sure how big the small saxophone is. 

This is a saxophone that was played by Bill Clinton.

We'd planned to go to the zoo, not the museum today, but rain was forecasted, so we went to the museum. It was raining when the museum closed. We had hoped to hang out right there in Central Park. Instead we headed down town on the subway.

We read the Princess book at Panera Bread!

The next day we packed out and flew home.

As a NYC resident, I LOVED seeing these pics and hearing about your trip! Seeing NYC through the eyes of visitors reminds me to take advantage of everything the city has to offer instead of taking it for granted . Looks like you had a lot of fun.
