Peter and the Starcatcher...

This morning we had a relaxing morning, went for a run and then decided to take in another wonderful Broadway show.  I mean hey, when you're in New York you gotta do Broadway several times.  Soooo, many great ones to choose from. 

Today we chose Peter and the Starcatcher.  It's the story of Peter Pan...kind of.  Not based upon the Disney version but more like the book "Peter and the Starcatcher".  Unfortunately, this one was more of a "quiet" play (in comparison to the musical Mary Poppins) so I was a little concerned on how our little boy was going to do.  But by the end of the play I was the one amazed at how good he did.  Since cameras are not allowed in the theater, I don't have any pictures to share of it. 

After that we had fantastic...way overpriced...burgers and shakes.  Of course, everything here is overpriced and after a while it just doesn't shock you anymore.  And speaking of New York it really is truly a unique place.  It's kind of like a land of the self-absorbed.  You walk among thousands of people all in their own little world, cutting you off left and right never looking you in the eye.  And I think the world would stop and begin to rotate backwards if someone said "excuse me" or "sorry about that" here. 

But New York is a wonderful melting pot of people.  There are people from everywhere walking among you.  All nationalities, all colors...it makes you realize just how small our world really is.  Just wishin' they would cut a stroller a little bit of slack here.

Tomorrow, we are spending the day in Central Park.  The kids want to rent some bikes and ride the day away.  Sounds pretty sweaty to me...
