(This is long with all these pictures, but its worth it! Promise!!)
Yesterday, we had the most amazing day. We went to New York City and, thanks to Mom Trends and Season of Savings, we got to see Mary Poppins on Broadway! (If you've never checked out Season of Savings, they have amazing deals – like up to 60% off deals.) Mom Trends hosted a giveaway and I won 2 tickets to Mary Poppins and a $100 gift card to Tony's di Napoli! We picked up two extra tickets (So cheap!! Seriously, check them out!) and treated the girls to a day in NYC!!
We took the train out, which the girls loved!
We immediately ran into a celebrity (Mark Hoppus from Blink-182!) outside Madison Square Garden. Then we walked up 5th Avenue and ran into a parade. So we ate a traditional NYC lunch (hot dogs from a street vendor) while we watch the parade and window shopped. Because 5th Avenue is probably the best place to window shop in the entire world (drool….)
Then we took the kids to one of the coolest places kids can go – FAO Schwarz!
Dinner at Tony's Di Napoli was fantastic. Not only can the location not be beat (right in Times Square, two blocks from the theater) but the food was totally amazing. Perfect for dining with kids or a big group. We had the house salad, spaghetti with marinara and Tony's specialty, meatballs and sausage. It was sooo yummy – they girls chowed down like they hadn't eaten in weeks – and the portion sizes were ridiculous. We ended the meal with a hot fudge brownie sundae that the girls' declared was "The BEST dessert EVER!!"
Then came the highlight of the day. We headed over to the New Amsterdam Theater and saw Mary Poppins. It was… incredible. Fantastic. Phenomenal. My girls' mouths were hanging open in amazement. We've been dying to take the girls to see Mary Poppins since we first heard about it and we were NOT disappointed. We loved, loved, LOVED it. Oh, I wish I could show you a picture of Gracie's face when Mary Poppins FLEW over us in the audience. Priceless.
