Day 5

Philly to NYC

sunny 83 °F

The day began with a great breakfast downtown Philly at Marathon. My banana's foster french toast was out of this world. Day5-1.jpg
Our weather was beautiful at the zoo as we visited every animal imaginable. The nation's first zoo began with an endangered exhibit where we saw monkeys and moles. A kids zoo that we could have them them all in, and then on to the beautiful tigers.Day5-4.jpg
The camels were cool, but only for $6/ride, no thanks. The hippopotamus was on a run which was cool, and a certain monkey played on a jungle gym. I couldn't get the kids away from that exhibit. I liked the red panda myself and the crazy reptiles including a king python, oohh. Three hours was perfectly complete with the purchase of stuffed animals and candy. The ride to NYC happened to be saved with the WAZE app that routed us around traffic jams, into construction, and eventually over the Verazano Bridge on the way to Aunt Mary's house. Day5-7.jpg
We were welcomed with their neighbors kids who now live in Apex (can you believe that?...Shepherd's Vineyard to boot). The chicken and salad was delicious. The boys wrestled til we thought they were tired (that didn't happen). We left around 8pm and headed into Times' Square. What a sight. The kids loved the lights.90_Day5-5.jpg
Our hotel was on 45th and 7th, just beside the Square. Neato! Tomorrow we take the town.
