Arriving in New York

Mom and I travelled to New York, today. Our flights were on time, the turbulence was mimimal and customs was quick. In the Toronto airport we had a quick visit with a friend of my mom's.

When we lined up for our connection for Toronto to New York I saw Liam Neeson  in the line. Unfortunately, she didn'trecognize him. He sat in first class with an orange baseball cap and glasses. He looked down the whole time. Anyway, this isn't a blog about Liam Neeson!

Here's mom in Toronto airport as we waited for our flight. Looking VERY good! Who would know this is a trip to celebrate her 70th birthday...unless you were guessing that we were celebrating it 15 years early!

Tonight, after we arrived, we walked a few blocks down 7th Avenue right into Times Square. The lights were crazy. Lots of people, interesting things to see, and smell :) !!

We were very touristy and ate at Bubba Gumps for supper. We shared a great salad of pears, raspberries, strawberries, baby greens, and a raspberry vinagrette and a dish of linguine, shrimp, capers and lemon. Yummy. They list their calorie count on every dish. Ours was pretty light! We stopped at a deli and picked up fresh fruit for the morning.

More touristy things tomorrow. Sisters two and three will show up tomorrow, too, after 7:00 p.m
