NYC Day 1

Check out Mrs. Toothpick Legs
After an uneventful flight, we arrived at LaGuardia at 1:45pm and we were at our borrowed apartment on the Upper East Side by 2:15. From there we spent time at a nearby playground--trying to blend in among the frightening skinny moms and kids accustomed to tame pigeons (my children couldn't resist chasing them around the park).

On the recommendation of a friend, we had dinner at Ko Sushi, and thanks to Cinderella on the video iPod, we were able to relax and enjoy the company of one of Josh's oldest friends, a former bandmate who, like me, is one of only a handful of U of C grads to go on to become an advertising creative.

Both girls are thrilled to be in NYC and staying on the 31st floor. Tomorrow we're going to eat breakfast at home and visit Central Park. My in-laws are taking the train up from Wilmington, DE around noon, so we'll have lunch with them before Z and I take a tour at the Lower East Side Tenement Museum.
