NYC - Day Six

On Sunday, we took a cab uptown to the American Museum of Natural History. Perry had been wanting to go all week, so we decided to check it out. The girls have never been interested in dinosaurs before, but they really enjoyed this museum. It's HUGE and we probably only saw half of it. We went to the space show in the planetarium which was pretty cool.
After a couple of hours, we decided to go outside to get hot dogs from a cart and enjoy the beautiful weather. We sat in Central Park and ate our lunch and dessert, then headed through the park to 7th Ave. We walked most of the way but took a pedicab for a few blocks when the girls started getting tired. I should add that we walked A LOT this trip - about six miles a day!
We headed to Times Square to look for souvenir t-shirts, then met Susan at the Lion King. This was a fantastic show! The costumes and set are amazing.
Then, after the show, we met Fred at a great Mexican restaurant, then walked a little bit to the Flatiron building.
Sadly, this was our last day in the city. On Monday, we hung out at Fred's place and got ready for our trip home. We really weren't ready to leave.
