Yesterday the boyfriend and I went to Manhattan to see the Empire State Building! Or we were supposed to because we’ve had tickets for over and year… but I walked out the door without them.
Instead, we met my dad at the Bryant Park Grill for a fancy lunch. I had a stir fry salad, which was good, but the best part was dessert. Behold, the Chocolate Peanut Butter S’more:
It was great.
So we didn’t have a plan, but since the New York Public Library is right behind the grill, we decided to go there. It is a beautiful building inside and out.
They have a great exhibit going on called The ABC’s of It: Why Children’s Books Matter. It was a great look at what books teach children, and it made me pretty nostalgic. You can see things like the original Winnie the Pooh stuffed animals, a life-size setup of Goodnight Moon, and art inspired by different stories like Where the Wild Things Are.

After the Library, we went back to Bryant Park and watched some intense ping pong! Thanks for an awesome day Jack!
