We went to the really big Toys R Us in Times Square today. The kids got some gift cards on Easter and wanted to spend them, so I figured why not just go all out. One train and 15 minutes later we were in the store and WOW was it cool. The funny thing about living in NYC is that you never really think too much about visiting all those tourist traps - you think you'll just get to it one day. But since we've been homeschooling, I have this need to see everything with the kids that I've never gotten to see my whole life living here. After purchasing a Lego thingy, W decided his last $8 would be to treat himself and his sister to the really big ferris wheel inside the store. I took a ton of pictures of them in front of the guy in the Geoffrey costume, the really big animatronic T-Rex, the Candyland pieces, the Lego creations, inside the Barbie Dreamhouse, and of course, on the ferris wheel. We also walked a few blocks up to the big Build-A-Bear store on 5th Avenue. W got a black teddy bear he named Spike (along with awesome Harley Davidson leather jacket) and J got a yellow duck she named Jay Jay. :)
