I love New York City. I’ve returned many times since I moved back to California, but NYC will always be my other home.

It’s been fun with Annabel. She loves the hustle and bustle of the city. She’s an insomniac in the city that never sleeps. She was made for New York.

In the name of photos and fun, I dragged Annie and Mike around town. It was such a blast to see things through Annabel’s eyes.

We went to the top of Rockefeller Plaza and I forced Mike and Annie to join me on the outdoor observation decks for pictures:

her poor chapped cheeks!

Despite the warmth, there is still snow in Central Park:

Mike wouldn’t let me throw any snowballs, though. Such a spoilsport.

Our time in NYC is at an end and (despite all the damn gear) I am really bummed. I miss this city so much. It’s one of my favorite places on earth.
