Trip to New York to see Uncle Kim
Last Sunday George, Lily and I went to New York City on the train to visit Uncle Kim. We had the best time! It was a beautiful day, sunny and really warm.
Walking around the West Village; really cute streets and nice neighborhoods. Uncle Kim is leading us to a good sushi place for lunch.
One of our first stops was for lunch at Sushi Samba. Yum! It was delicious and so much better than what we find in our area.
We also had some Italian Gelato at a little shop called L'Arte Del Gelato, and it was the best I've ever had! Can't wait to go back for more!
We took a break at a playground where Lily could cool off. Heath and Unlce Kim are in the background. We are making our way up the west side of Manhattan; NY is celebrating 400 years since the discovery of the Hudson River and there is a parade of tall ships on its way up the river. We are looking for a prime viewing location.
But first another little break. Lily is in the back playing on the sculpture.
We went out on an empty pier which gave us a great place to see the ships. And we could also see the Empire State Building which is in the background.
Here come the ships!
Uncle Kim was the best guide and showed us lots of things we wouldn't have known about if he wasn't there. The whole day was perfect and we have a new list of things to do on the next trip.

It was a long day but we all had a blast and can't wait until we do it again!
