Month of May: New York City

This post is definitely going to age me. We decided we'd take the DC to NY bus (4 hours driving) while my brother was here because we'd never been and thought it'd be fun. Well after I bought the tickets I was having major anxiety about going, almost to the point that I was ready to stay home with Harrison. First of all it was going to be a majorly long day: the bus left at 7:30am, we'd get to NY around noon, and then leave again at 7:30, getting home around midnight. So besides the super long day driving, walking, and with Harrison I was also convinced that something terrible was going to happen to us, like we'd get mugged or lost or something. I was so anxious about it that I even left my wedding ring at home. I think another thing that made me really nervous was that we'd never been there before and it's this HUGE city and we're supposed to figure out where we're going (which is weird because that kind of thing has never bothered me before). Well needless to say the trip couldn't have gone better. All that worry for nothing. Harrison did extremely well on the bus ride, the sights were awesome, I was even the one navigating us through the city, and I never even felt like we were in danger. But here are a few pics from the day.

Bus ride there....thank goodness for ipods and movies

Going up.....

Porter was a danger to others whenever he turned.....haha!!

Times Square

Good Morning America and the Today Show Studio

All in all it was a great day trip....however I was definitely feeling it for the next week. Being 6 months pregnant and walking all day just about did me in.
