Burnt Rabbit Fur and St. Patrick’s Cathedral ~ Adventure Days Part 3 ~ More Pics

So many pictures to share! πŸ˜‰

We had such a wonderful time in New York City and Mom is quite the photographer! LOL!

She just keeps snapping away! I’m thankful for all of the pictures to share with you!

Christmas in New York City is just beautiful! Jackson was sooo excited and loved every minute of it!

We made it to FAO Schwarz! Jackson and I were both excited! πŸ˜‰
Someone offered to take a picture of all of us! Yay! Mom, Jackson, the FAO Schwarz soldiers and Me too!

These guys were the best! Such happy guys to be standing outside the most popular toy store in NYC to take pictures with practically everyone that walks through those doors! They were such a delight! So glad Mom could be in the picture with us too! Thank you random stranger! πŸ˜‰

We spent hours in FAO Schwarz! How could you not?!?!

Jackson “Traveling the World” with Paul Frank!
Jackson chilling out with the golden bear. πŸ™‚

The videographer (hee hee Mom) got a little spinny with the camera…Sorry but cute! I really have to find Big so I can show Jackson the movie! He will be amazed to see Zoltar and what happened when someone wished to be big! Wait til he sees the big piano that he got to play on too! We’re off to the library to borrow that movie soon! Big Piano pictures and video coming up…

First we stopped in the FAO Schweetz section of the store! Loved it!!!! We actually got chocolate covered gummy bears and had fun picking and choosing schweetz to take home with us! πŸ˜‰

Jackson kept wanting Gamma to take the picture when I wasn’t looking…so he could pose! LOL!
Jackson and the very heavy real Gummy Bear!

No, we did not get one of these…it would’ve lasted forever!
He’s such a HAM! Posing by the clock! Listening to the FAO song!

Big Piano time!

I think he was a little nervous at first…but quickly realized how much fun he could have on there! He went back for a couple more turns! πŸ˜‰

Phew…I’m a little pooped! But that was fun!

Lego Area!

We were now entering Lego Land in FAO Schwarz!
Cool Characters…Jackson loves Star Wars!
One of the Soldiers!
Of Course Batman!
The beautiful Statue of Liberty!

Special Kudos to all those that spend numerous hours putting together these amazing Lego sculptures! That is probably fun! Could you imagine missing pieces?!

And did we leave the best Toy Store in NYC with a nice big bag?

Of course we did! LOL! More pictures to come…

I need to get to bed! It’s too much fun blogging! I love it!

Burnt Rabbit Fur and St. Patrick’s Cathedral – Adventure Days
We had a pretty eventful day! Just a little scary with the mini fire though! But that didn’t stop us! We headed back into New York for another Adventure Day! We did not go back to St. Patrick’s Cathedral with Jackson’s Rabbit Fur Hat though! LOL!

This is the video of Jackson after school on Wednesday….
If you have a Kindergartner, you know how tired they can be afterschool…
but we did get a little excitement out of him after mentioning New York City and FAO Schwartz! LOL!

We just got back from spending 2 spontaneous days in New York City!

We talked about it and…
decided Wednesday night…
to drive into New York City on Thursday and Friday! πŸ˜‰

Mom, Jackson and myself did some of the following on Day 1

(These are only a few of the pictures we took on Day 1
I will post more as soon as they get uploaded to the computer from Mom and my phones LOL πŸ˜‰ )

  • Shopping in Times Square…
  • Enjoying Rockefeller Center…
  • Riding a ferris wheel in the middle of Toys R Us…
  • Spending precious time in the gorgeous St. Patrick’s Cathedral!

(Which might smell a little like burnt rabbit fur now…lol)

Riding the indoor Ferris Wheel in the middle of Toys R Us!

Jackson and I in the Toy Story car of the Toys R Us Ferris Wheel! We were pretty lucky…almost got a Barbie car LOL!

Take notice to the HAT!

This is Jackson’s favorite HAT! Lined with Rabbit Fur!

Notice “No HAT” and candles in the background! 

Yes, Jackson and I are standing in front of the Nativity Scene at St. Patrick’s Cathedral with my heart pounding at this point…


This would be right after Mommy whipped that hat off of Jackson’s head…he leaned to get a stick to light a candle and caught his left ear flap on FIRE just a little…

It was a tiny, yet very scary FIRE on my child’s Rabbit Fur Hat that was still on his HEAD!!!

He leaned…
It caught FIRE…
And my hand closed that quickly around it!!!!

He was completely fine and didn’t even realize what had happened until I had my hand by his head…

We took off the hat for a while after that…

The scent of burnt rabbit fur filled the air for some time in New York’s St. Patrick’s Cathedral…
My hand smelled of burnt rabbit fur as well…
Jackson smelled it full force from my hand and the edges of his burnt rabbit fur left ear flap of his hat….LOL

Oh the events that can occur while enjoying our Adventure Days together!!!
