This was another busy day. The RV seemed empty without the kids.
Patti Sue and I worked our way toward Pat & Pam's apartment where the kids had spent the night. Since we were a little late getting started, Pam and the kids met us at the subway stop (PS ate breakfast at McDonald's). Pam took today off to spend with us.

Carson Daly did the "Got Milk" ad . The one on the right is a green
room that is also a set, sometimes.
The tour was very good - thanks, Pam!
|We were actually at Times Square a bunch of times. I think this is the only picture we took there.|
|Then it was off to the Central Park Zoo. It was a nice Zoo and it whetted Patti Sue's appetite for Central Park.|
|There was a magician who had us do the tricks with the magic words that all living things need (food, water, shelter, space, and time). Joe got to be his helper.|

The one on the right is back into the city at, well, FAO Schwarz. Quite a store.
There was some shopping done (no photo documentation of this, but the clothes will be worn until tattered and torn, I'd suspect). Also, the kids had made birthday cards for Patti Sue at Pat & Pam's. We sang 'Happy Birthday' to her on Fifth Avenue in front of St. Patrick's Cathedral.
|This is St. Patrick's Cathedral. Very pretty - inside and out!|
|This was on the steps of St. Patrick's Cathedral. Pam took this.
(Many of the NYC photos are from Pat & Pam's camera!) Patrick
wondered later what all the different people are thinking.
Actually, as I recall, a fire truck went by about then. Always something going on in New York City.
|Back to Pat & Pam's apartment and then out to dinner. This time at the America restaurant. They had these two mannequins (George Washington & Abe Lincoln) at the bar, with a small Statue of Liberty (Enlightening the Bar).|
Then it was back to the RV. This taxi driver didn't even bother to turn on the meter. Not a word was said - I just handed him the $4 when we got out and that was that.
