The LDS Temple was so AmaZing to see in this MaSSive city. Walking into it felt like HoMe. Aah, the PeAceFulnes (k, maybe not in my home all the time, but in the city of organized honking, people, buildings, sirens, etc..).........
The RiCKsHaW ride in CenTral PaRk was my FaVorite part of the trip. Our DriVer was AweSoMe. He knew EVERY building, individuals who may live in the buildings and the HiStoRy of the park itself...so ImPreSSed we were! We had them take us to the MeT afterwards and let me tell you...just about peeed (sorry, no better way to describe it) all over ourselves because he PulleD into OnComiNg TraFFic to make a left hand turn, WitHout slowing down! Like I said...my FaVoriTe part of the trip.
"Strawberry Fields Forever" - "I'll be There for You"
(sing along)

The Guggenheim Museum...It was CloSing, so the main floor is the OnLy part we were able to see.

Later that evening, we went to SpaM-a-LoT...HillaRious!! Curtis Could'NT resist.


After the show, we WalKed around TiMe SquaRe to end the evening. All of a SuDDen a CamEra crew came up to CurT to interview him.. They asked him what he thought of the GoVermeNt buy out of companies (what do you think)? My LiTTle celebrity!

OMGosh! That man would have died if he had to cart me around town. That is so cool! I love the Temple, it is so amazing that you can go into such peace after being out in the russel and bussel of the big city. Awesome photos as usual. I saw you today driving, you looked like you were on your way home. You looked hot too!

Believe it or not..we moved weeks before the temple opened...

AND again...we've just moved BEFORE the Draper temple opens...argh.

But loved Spam A Lot!

And The met is great, but my favorite favorite museum is MoMa! Did you make it there?

How exciting about the interview! We lived 2 or 3 hours from the temple during it's open house and we NEVER made it there. A BIG regret of mine. I want a rickshaw ride now, too! :)

Don't you just LUV New York? That's exciting you guys could go!!! I LUV New York too :) Our daughter Christy eloped there 2 years ago (they just invited the parents). They were married in the Manhattan temple and then we took pictures in Central Park, Brooklyn Bridge, Waldorf, etc. It's the most fun city! We did a lot of the same things you did :)

Your time in New York looks like it was packed with fun! I'll bet Curtis was in his element speaking to the news crew. Did he speak their language? Where were they from. It is always comforting to find a temple where ever you go. I felt at home when Josh and I visited the one in San Antonio when we went there last summer.
