After a very long night in Philly, we wanted a mellow day. We knew we were going to Aladdin on Broadway later that evening, so we killed time in the city. We headed over to DoughBoys Pizza to grab a bite to eat. We ended up meeting the owners of the place and they were pretty cool. They have some great pizza and are open super late, so if you are ever in need of some pizza late in the night this place will still be bumpin! They even posted a picture on their instagram of Reagan enjoying some of their pizza. Check them out!
As if we weren’t already stuffed from the pizza, we then went over to Holey Cream for some dessert. This was unlike any dessert we’ve had. It was a donut dipped in frosting, oreos on top, with oreo cookie ice cream in the middle. Now I get why HOLEY is in their name and for more than one reason. I only had about two bites because it was extremely sweet, but that was enough for me; Reagan and dad enjoyed the rest (mostly dad).
Reagan really wanted to go back over to Central park to watch the horses ride around. We thought that was a good idea because we really needed to work off our pizza and dessert. By the time we got to the park we looked in the stroller and she was asleep!! We knew we were leaving the next day so we were going to have to make time to come back. We were lucky to meet up with my friend Brad who lives in New York and just chill for a bit.
Finally, it was time for ALADDIN!! I don’t know if Reagan was more excited for the show or to meet up with Shane again. She might have a little crush haha! Let me just say that show was absolutely magical! The Genie was incredible and was seriously born to play that role! It was perfect because we had actually watched Aladdin with Reagan for the first time before our trip so she really was excited. Part way through the show, and seeing how much Reagan was liking it, I got worried that she was never going to want to watch a movie on tv again haha. The whole rest of the night we were all singing the Aladdin songs.
Anyone in the big city needs to check out all of the things we did today because each once was amazing!!
