NYC Day 3
Ice skating at Rockefeller Center is on my bucket list.
But the price is crazy.
Not too crazy for one person to scratch an item off their bucket list
but a little much for gambling with whether the kids would actually
enjoy skating and not just be over it after 15 minutes.
My friend Rebekah lives in NYC and had recommended
Admission is free and skate rental is $15.
So, in favor of the budget we opted to head there on Sunday morning.
Bucket list will have to wait.
We all loved it
We could have spent the entire day at the rink.
It was surreal to be gliding around on the ice
surrounded by towering buildings.
Bryant Park is adjacent to the New York Public Library
(which is gorgeous ) and has views of the Chrysler building.
It was the stuff dreams are made of.
**Wear comfortable, thick, long socks.
By the end, our virgin legs were rubbed raw from the pressure points
of the skates pressing into our shins.**
We always love to point out when we see the word Grace.
Hymns, buildings, churches.
It’s fun for Grace to see her name used so frequently.
I wouldn’t know the feeling.
The curse of the unusual name.
We spent the rest of our day laying eyes on the cities most famous buildings.
|Lobby of Empire States building|
|Empire States building from a distance|
|The Flat Iron|
I’m a sucker for churches.
I absolutely L-O-V-E places of worship.
So when we were leaving the city and I spotted this priest holding service
and providing communion in park my heart skipped a beat.
I don’t know if I could live in NYC long term but I’m thinking of
adding “live in NYC”
to my bucket list.
Until we meet again NYC.
