Cute little Samantha and Shelby

We went to the Today show on the last morning. Shelby wasn't loving it. :)

We just got back yesterday from a wonderful girls trip to New York Me and Shelby went with Tucker's cousin Michele and her daughter Samantha. We all took a red eye out on Saturday night and met up with Michele and Samantha at the airport. Luckily our hotel let us check in at 6:30 so that we were able to take a nap before we hit the city. The first day we were there it rained pretty much the whole day, but that did not stop us. We walked around most of the afternoon and saw quite a few of the gorgeous Christmas stuff that was set up. Monday was great. It wasn't too cold and we had so much fun. We let the girls play in Central Park and FAO Schwartz in the morning and then at12:30 we had an appointment at the American Girl doll store for a tea party/lunch with the dolls. It was one of the cutest things I have ever done. They let you choose a doll to borrow for lunch and have chairs that hook right to the table so the dolls can eat with you. Of course Nemo got to have his own chair too. They served delicious appetizers, lunch and dessert. It was so much fun. Next stop was Radio City Music Hall for the Christmas Rockettes show. We were lucky enough to get 2nd row tickets. It was perfect. Shelby was able to see everything and she loved the show! After the show we walked down to Macy's to see the store windows and sneak a peak at Santa...which they had him hidden away so that you can't see him unless you stand it line. Lame. We walked over to Bryant Park to do some window shopping and watch the ice skaters. Then Back to Sachs to see the lights show there. We were EXHAUSTED by the end of the day. Shelby was such a trooper, she never complained and did great. On Tuesday we got up and watched the Today Show for a bit and let the girls play around at Central Park again. Samantha and Shelby had such a great time together. We decided to take the Subway back to the airport instead of a taxi and I barely made our flight. I forgot how long it takes and didn't quite leave us enough time. I had to flash the ole employee badge and run through security and right onto the flight. It was a close call. I made poor Shelby run those little legs all around that day. It was a great vacation and a new yearly tradition!
