When the last day of a vacation comes there are always mixed emotions. The thought of going home is nice for many reasons but the thought of leaving is so sad! We weren’t leaving until 8pm so we tried to make the most out of our last day in New York, I mean who knows when we will be back!
We cherished our last ferry ride, and headed straight back to Central Park, this time we were determined to keep Reagan awake to enjoy it! We wanted to see more of the park this time so we took one of the carriage rides to help us get around much quicker! As we were riding around I kept thinking, if we lived here I would come here with Reagan every day the weather would allow me to! It was just such a fun atmosphere. A lot of people everywhere, running, walking, and just hanging out! We stopped by so many famous places that we have seen in movies, it was really neat just to be able to see them for myself. We tried to get some cute pics of us individually with Reagan but as you could see she was more interested in the fountain than the camera. It turned into a Stephanie photo shoot haha! It’s fine though because I was wearing the cutest braided sweater vest from Anthropologie! I seriously love that vest, you can throw it over so many different things!
Luckily we saw the biggest bubbles of all time which got Reagan away from the fountain. But of course if you play with the bubbles you have to tip the man. It’s a really clever business idea for the guy because they just float on over to you and it was pretty hard for me not to pop them let alone a child who thinks they are the coolest things ever! Well played bubble man, you earned our money haha! I’m glad he was there though because we had tons of fun playing with them and I got a ton of cute pictures of Reagan with those enormous bubbles.
After all the fun stuff we had done throughout our trip we really just wanted Reagan to have some little kid time. We found the best playground and just let her run around and have a blast. There really is nothing like being with your little one playing around and doing everything they want to do. She is the best playmate, it is so fun to play and imagine with her. I miss those days of sweet innocence, when playing was the only thing to do. I enjoy sharing these moments where I can just be with her and for her and not have another care in the world. We swung “high into the sky” and laughed as we pretended to kick dad. After a while and a few real kicks we had to stop haha! There were little water spouts that shot water and of course we had to put our hands in that ( just in case water suddenly feels different and we need to be sure it hasn’t haha) We got a little wet but not that bad, plus we walked around and it dried pretty quickly.
Before we knew it, it was time to go. We got all of our stuff together and then went over to meet Shane where he was practicing. He really wanted to see us and take us to the airport so we met him over there. We even got to watch them practice for a little while, which was pretty cool! Once he was done, it was off to the aiport! It was really the best trip ever, we had so much fun visiting New York and being able to spend time with some of our best friends! We said our goodbyes and we were outta there!
