Here’s my dream: We’ll surprise our bratty adolescent children with a flight to New York City, the Christmas Capitol of America. The Drake hotel will be our home for one week. We’ll be curbside on 34th street Thanksgiving morning, experiencing the always epic Macy Day Parade. The next day, we’ll see the Radio City Rockettes perform their Christmas Spectacular. We’ll ice skate at Rockefeller Center, under the glow of that beautiful tree. Of course, we’ll take a horse drawn carriage ride in Central Park. We’ll window shop, and hit up legendary toy stores, eat pizza by the slice, and meet up with our dear old friend Harry. Maybe we’ll even be lucky enough to get robbed by some “sticky bandits”.
It’ll be a merry magical family adventure. One I’ve wanted to take ever since I can remember. So far, Reetz is on board, as long as the festive finances are available. Aaahh… I sure hope my offspring love this idea as much as I do.
