We kick off today walking along Times Square exploring for a place for breakfast and it is surprisingly warm, so much that I tell Zinije I want to return back to the hotel and drop off my jacket.  She influences me to hold on to it as there is rain forecasted today and you never just never know how much the weather can change.  I decide to keep my jacket on and we walk into the Roxy Delicatessen for breakfast and we order only two things, Pancakes and French toast as we learnt our lesson from yesterdays lunch.  The waitress looks surprised and says you should probably order more as there are four of us, but I assure her two dishes will be more than enough. When our food arrives it is huge, more than enough for the four of us and the kids apple juice is at least half a litre per glass.  After an enjoyable breakfast we head down Broadway Ave and it start's to rain lightly at first and then it gets heavier, we walk past a cinema and notice the animated movie Rango will be on in 10 minutes, so we decide to stop and catch a movie and keep dry.  It's a good movie, but probably targeted towards older kids, as I could see Lisiana losing interest at different parts of the movie.  After the movie we head outside and it's really cold, still raining with the wind in full swing, the kids are struggling so we return to the hotel and wait for the rain to stop. In the afternoon it clears up and we head for a restaurant we once went to in 2003 with our close friends called Carmines.  It's Italian cuisine with huge servings and your are instructed to only order one dish per table.  As we walk in,  the decor of the restaurant hasn't changed a bit, we order spaghetti and meatballs straight away with our drinks which is a popular choice with the kids.  As our food arrives, it brings back fond memories of our friends and the times when we used to live here, it's been great to revisit.  Our food arrives, it's only one plate but still too much for the four of us and there are 6 very big meatballs, one meatball was as big a tennis ball.   We all dig in and it's delicious.  For the remainder of evening we walk to the Rockerfeller centre and 5th Ave and explore the sights and stores.  They have a Nintendo World and Lego World which the kids have a ball exploring and the ice staking rink is in full swing and Arion wants to desperately try it and asks if he can, but as none of us know how and it's quite busy, we decide against it.
