my older sister kara and i have always wanted to go to new york and see the rockefellar tree at christmas time. maybe since we saw home alone movies when we were little. this fall we got tickets and planned at road trip! she is living in concord new hampshire right now so it was about a 5 hour drive. it was beautiful, we drove through Massachusetts, and then Connecticut, and then we stopped by new jersey on the way home. i loved it and was so happy we went and got to see new things. new york has always been at the top of my wish list of places to go. it was very cold and we rushed from place to place, but it was all worth it. we saw dylans candy bar, f.a.o. schwartz and lots of other things.
