Part 3: Lost in Central Park

First off, if your ever in NYC with my mother and Aunt Gail, and they want to go to Central Park... Do NOT go, I repeat DO NOT GO!!!!! We got Saturday morning and headed down Rockefeller Center to NBC studios for the NBC tour! It was really cool to see all the sets, S&L, Dr.Oz and a couple more! We don't have any pictures because they don't allow you take any pictures due to copying the stages I guess. Then we were off to Central Park and to the Met and Natural History Museum (NHM).Well first we had to decided and find what subway to take...which took FOREVER!!!!!! We rode the subway all the way down to the NHM, there was an entrance from the subway into the museum. We wait in the line and we wait and we wait...There is a sign of what kind of pass you can buy, but for some reason people don't choose to decide until they get right up to the desk to pay..UGH! Come one now, you are holding up the line. Well then we had 2 people in front of us when the security comes and says "New York Passes have to go to the front entrance" What in the world???? He could have told us that before we waited in the line forever! So then we go around to the front entrance and mother and Gail decided that we'll come back...okay...*ugh* I was STARVING by this time, I had already told them that I wanted something good for lunch.. so what do they get us??? a water and some crackers..What??? I'm not a squirrel...I need real food Gail! I was beyond ticked and hungry. Of course I said No to the crackers, oh and we were all 3 supposed to share the pack of crackers. Central Park is right there at NHM, they wanted to walk through it and go to the MET. I was okay but still mad! If you have an iphone and use your map in Central Park, beware that it may just may lead you in the wrong direction! After about 15 minutes of walking and then having to turn around and walk a different way I learned to walk way behind Mother and Gail. We don't really have any pictures of Central Park, mainly because I was ticked the whole time! Then what do mother and Gail start doing, walking in opposite directions.... what do I do??? Stand in the middle where they split! Because sooner or later one of them was going to come back because they had walked the wrong way! I didn't talk to them, I gave them EVIL looks! Maybe after 30-45 minutes of being lost in Central Park we find a street! There were people everywhere..they were having a German parade! It was pretty cool to see all the people dressed up. We then found the MET and walked in to get our pass to go in, we get in line, wait a few minutes and they say "We don't take the NYC Pass, thats down there" and they pointed down to the left of us. What in the world New Yorkers??? Put up signs that say This is the Line for New York Passes!!!! It would be quite helpful. We get in, but don't really have the time to check it out, we do go find the cafeteria, and got myself some LUNCH! They have a great variety there, my food was pretty good :) We then went upstairs to the top to check out the view. It was very pretty, all of those pictures are on my moms camera, and I don't have her camera card right now. We left there and took the subway back to 5th Avenue to go to FAO!
Looky Looky what we found??? The Met!! Well its about time!!!
 As we were walking down 5th Avenue to FAO we stubbled upon a wedding at St. Patrick's Cathedral. We saw all the people standing around and white limos out front but weren't sure what was going on. Then mom says she heard someone say that the bride was about to get out. So, we stayed around to wait to see her, and she came out of the limo right in front of us... I guess people thought she might be someone famous, but there wasn't enough security around for it to be a celeb. Boy oh boy when she got out, she really got out! She was absolutely stunning! They walked right past me, I could have hugged the mother of the bride!
 Isn't she BEAUTIFUL????
My Favorite Toy Store!!! They have moved the piano since last time we came. We saw the piano room and oh my goodness it was packed out!!!
 This is at the Top of the Rock. I was still very angry, I did not want to go up there at all. I didn't even walk outside! I sat on the couches until mother and Gail got done!My feet and legs were hurting so bad...
Mom did get to snap a picture of the groom! See how close we were, yes we are wedding stalkers/crashers! *L*
After 5th Avenue we went back up to Time Square, we hadn't got B or Tad or daddy anything, and we needed to do some shopping! Well B racked up at the Disney Store, they were having buy 1 get 1 free! He got lots of presents! We are so not schedule people...We had to rush back to the room to get ready for dinner... Like 15 minutes to get to the room and get dressed!

Saturday night we had dinner reservations at Dos Cominos down in the Meat Packing District. We took taxis down there, Jana Cindy and Anna rode together and Aunt Gail Momma and Me rode in another one. Again, it was extremely hard to catch a cab!Jana Anna and Cindy got one before we did. So Aunt Gail just gets in the street and waves at EVERY I mean EVERY car that goes by us.... Like I mean WAVES at them. I wish I would have taken a picture or video of her doing it...saddly I couldn't stop laughing at her long enough to do anything! I couldn't even catch a cab because I was to busy laughing at her! We finally got a cab and our driver had no idea where Dos Cominos was, Mother had to explain to him where it was.
After our adventure of getting a cab! :)

The ROPH Girls!

After dinner, we went to The Gotham for a comedy show! It was good, and then headed back to Time Square for the rest of the night. I think we laid down at 2:30am and we had to be up at 5:30! Can you talk about some tired girls on Sunday morning??? We all slept on the plane rides home, I took a nap at the airport before leaving NYC.  We were glad to be home but I already miss is and I'm ready to go back! I think next year's girl trip we are going to Chicago and hopefully going to the ELLEN show.

We are going back to NYC is June for my graduation. I had thought about changing it and going to LA, but I love my New York, so LA will have to another time!
