I was amazed how much is in there.

It was amazing how some looked so real and others were just so so.

We spent a couple of hours there. We didn't rush through and just had a great time.

I agree. I was surprised we could actually touch them too.

That is so funny. And that's why I decided to watch all the movies before going to Infinity War. Claire had seen a couple of them and knew info on all, but we were so glad we watch them all before this movie. Now we want to watch them all again.

It was really big. I am glad we decided to visit this trip.

We all know that the day after Thanksgiving is for shopping…and where better to do it than NYC!

Aunt Mary decided to order a van to drive us over to Macy’s as a group. We told her not to but she insisted it was cheaper than taking taxis….I am pretty sure she is wrong (more like lying), but you just can’t argue with her.

We gathered in the hall to get ready to leave.

And we headed down and our party van was waiting.

Amanda was feeling sick again and Aunt Mary was staying with her till she decided if she was well enough to come.

Amanda felt a little better and Aunt Mary messaged us that they were on their way down.

And off we went. Really, Macy’s is not that far away and we could even walk to it if we wanted to. But this made Aunt Mary happy.

First thing we did was head to an area where you can pick up a discount visitor pass, only to find out that they had a better pass for this weekend for everyone. In reality, I wasn’t here to shop, so it didn’t matter to me.

Then Abby wrote a letter to Santa.

I took various pictures while she worked on her letter.

They were filming, but I couldn’t get close enough to see if it was the news or something else.

All finished

We then headed to see Santa. Last time we were able to schedule an appointment and basically got in the “fastpass” line for Santa. We had read it was going to be a little different this year, but we weren’t clear on it. So Gail checks us in and the tell us to get in line….the line wraps around and around and through all sorts of departments. Gail goes back and tells them no, we have an appointment. They tell her the appointment is to get in line….that’s it! The line we found out was going to be over 2 hours. We asked the kids….mainly Abby…if they wanted to wait or not. The 2 older said no, and Abby said she didn’t want to wait and would see him some other time…so they went and shopped around and I went outside to look at the window displays.

The theme was basically Christmas in New York.

Oh my goodness, that is crazy - an appointment to get in a two hour line! Thank goodness no-one wanted to do that. I do think you were brave heading into Macy's on Black Friday. I'd expect it to be crazy!
