I was working on a small project in New York City in the spring of 2006. I found out that I was going to have to fly out there on Easter Sunday to attend a meeting the next morning. This did not please me too much, until I thought about bringing my family to spend the whole weekend.


So Madeline, Dana, and Dana's friend, Amanda (actually, she's a friend of the entire family) joined me for a long weekend in the city. Since it was the young girls' first time there, we did a lot of touristy stuff, like walking through Times Square, taking a bus tour of all of Manhattan, and going to a Broadway show.

On Sunday, we went to Mass at St. Patrick's Cathedral, where the lines were long and the service beautiful. We also saw the famous Easter parade

On Friday night, we walked Times Square near our hotel

On Saturday, we hopped on the tour bus and drove through all the Manhattan neighborhoods. We saw the Empire State building and stopped near Rockefeller Plaza to eat some hot dogs off a street vendor. We also went to Central Park
