Had a big sleep in today as the kids were very sleep deprived, so a late start at 10am
Went to the Nintendo store, Lego store and the largest toy store in the world and then went looking for the One Direction store for Lilia but unfortunately it had closed.

Jack got lots  of Pokemon, he has also bought gifts for all of his school mates.

Lilia got some Lego friend sets and lots of clothes.

We also saw the ice skating rink last night and today but no skaters, both times they were cleaning and preparing the surface, but still quite amazing, I do remember this from when i was a kid.
 
Went on the subway a few times now, so getting used to their metro - it's actually very good - kids travel free also.

Went down to the Statue of Liberty - no tour as we were content in seeing it from afar.

We also walked down the the World Trade Memorial, very sad and humbling, huge crowds to see the official remembrance memorial but we didn't line up as we felt it was more for those who had lost loved ones.
 
It's 4pm now and were having a quick break before heading out again in an hour or so, we'll try to make the Imax 3d movie of the Oz movie.

Going to try and catch up with my mate Julz tomorrow - he lives in New Jersey but the timing might make it difficult as he is overseas until this evening, so will play by ear. Julz is a Yello collector and I have known him for over 10 years now so would be great to catch up.

Also plan to get to Central Park. More to follow later tonight.

Photos coming soon - over 300 photos in less than 24 hours, I am struggling to edit and select appropriate photos so I might just upload them all for sorting at a later date, so excuse dodgy shots.


Late night update:
Saw The Great and Powerful Oz at 3D Imax, awesome film and interesting take on the original, well worth seeing.
Last night in NY, leave tomorrow for Orlando and will visit Epcot. 
Happy Easter everyone!

Great photos, keep them coming, it is almost like we were there with you. Would still luv a photo of you Paul occasionally pleaseeee! Luv the one of Jack almost as tall as the Statue of Liberty :-). And Lilia getting hugged by Minnie Mouse, some lovely ones of Wendy with the kids. Keep them coming. Strangely though each time I look through slides, I see others I haven't seen 1st or 2nd time. Even going through them one by one that happens, they must be showing them random. It wasn't until the 3rd time that I saw the fairy lights at night, or the photos from Empire State Bldg. Can you get someone to take a group photo of the four of you. It is Good Friday here, we miss you already :-). L U all xxxx
