FAO Schwarz

After our carriage ride in Central Park we ended on 5th Avenue. While looking for a place to have supper, Charlie spotted the Apple Store! When I tell you it was JAM PACKED I couldn’t mean it more. There must’ve been 1,000 people in that store. We did get to play with a few iPads and charge our iPhones while we were there though! 
Next door was FAO Schwarz. A real ‘toy’ soldier met us at the door. The store was AMAZING. It really went beyond my expectations. They had a really cool candy store with gigantic candy of all kinds. The baby doll section had it’s own baby nurse. There was a magician doing tricks and every toy you can imagine. Of course, the BIG PIANO was there too. It was for sale - $250,000! WOWZERS! I had a fun time playing on it along with other ‘big kids’. After we posed by the life size Lego toys and chose a toy for Avery, we were off to Rockefeller Plaza to have a nice dinner overlooking the skating rink! We couldn’t catch a cab, but found a towncar with a friendly driver who encouraged us to hang out of the sunroof riding down 5th Avenue. And in true tourist fashion, I passed Sacs 5th Avenue hanging out of the top of that car! What a fantastic night. :)

That looks awesome! I can't believe you didn't get Avery that piano! Who really needs private school, college, a car... or a house when you could make music?! ;)
Shelbi would have never left the candy section! lol
