Here are some more photos from Natalia and I's trip to NYC.

Natalia wanted to see the inside of Grand Central Station. It's an absolutely stunning building that took
10 years to build. It seems like it should be in an Italian city somewhere. Quite nice.

Nati found the Lindt store on 5th Ave and thought she had gone to heaven. Here she is strolling the inside.


Full size
Another store she liked was the FAO Schwartz toy store - not necessarily for the toys, but for the huge
candy section. Check out the look on her face as she goes to check out 'Big Candy'.

FAO Schwartz has a small Muppet section where you can customize your own Muppets. Here's Henry hanging
out with a couple of Muppets. He's about the same size as they are, but he's a good bit heavier.

After customizing a couple of Muppets for our eventual puppet theatre, Nati and I took Henry for a stroll through
Central Park. This is the 'Sheep Meadows', a nice spot to enjoy some sun.

Nati was trying to convince Henry to join her on the carousel, but he didn't really want to join in.

Henry, with some cool shades, and the buildings along the park in view.

Here is Henry, sleeping, alongside the two Muppets Natalia and I made. She made a really cook chef and
I made a dorky professor-type Muppet. Name suggestions are much appreciated!

Natalia, our Muppets, and Henry at the Muppet Whatnot Workshop. Apparently, only ~7 people a year work
as Muppet Workshop Creators.

We ran into a Persian Day Parade while wandering the city. Check out the float behind Natalia talking
about Zoroaster the Prophet.

I find it great that American allows countries which explicitly hate it (like Iran) the freedom of speech that
their country doesn't allow. Good for you America.


Full size
Nati liked the cops on horses, who were helping the safety of the parade.


Full size
Natalia thought the Empire State Building was a nice building, but not worth the $27 a person to go up,
especially when it's likely that Henry's ears would pop.


Full size
Nati was super pumped to find more Babiators at the Macy's in Midtown. This is apparently now the 2nd largest store
in the world after a shop in Korea for bigger. It's still massive.


Full size
I think Henry looks like the baby in the Hangover here. We stopped at MSG to see about finding some baby
NHL gear. Of course, MSG is much more interested in selling you Knicks crap.


Full size
This was on a sign near Bryant Park that I thought was great. The dork world loves the story of Nikola Tesla.


Full size
Nati really liked the daffodils in Bryant Park.


Full size
I finally found a soft ice cream provider with rainbow sprinkles for under $7. Yummy!


Full size
Nati was stoked to find a root beer float!


Full size
I have no idea what car this is, but the chauches driving it seemed like they were the coolest kids in school.
I think the trike is actually a modified motorbike. It's amazing what happens when baby boomers age...


Full size
Henry seems to actually enjoy his new Muppet friend. We haven't sorted out what to name him or his sister yet though.
