Doing The City With 5 Kids.......

not the easiest thing to do
(in Times Square)

I never counted to 5 so many times in my life.

I was so afraid I was going to lose one in the crowd.

We bought cheap umbrella strollers so we could get in and out of the subways fast.

The kids couldn't stop looking around at everything and all the tall buildings.

Lots of stairs but we got it down. All about team work:)

Imagine trying to fit in with strollers.

Watching them set up for New Years Eve.

This is how we roll on the streets of NYC. ha!

My cousin Rocco (we call him Rocky)just so happened to be in NYC too. Haven't seen him since I was 18.

We met at Rockefeller center and he surprised us with my other cousin Harry and his wife Maria and son Harrison.

Landen and Harrison are so much alike. Cute WILD boys:)

Enjoyed some greasy New York pizza!

Had Christmas Eve dinner in the city.

Went to Federal Hall and museum.

Meeting the family.

Enjoying the city at Christmas time.

Federal Hall where George Washington was sworn into office.

Ground Zero:(

Finley's 1st cab ride. (I think she looks scared!) Crazy cab drivers!

Catching a cab with all the kids was fun NOT ha!

But the kids are now pros at catching cabs:)

This was my 3rd time to NYC but first time with the kids. Whew! New York with babies is A LOT of work! But TONS of fun and TONS of looks ha!

We did NYC 5 years ago with 8 kids (and 2 cheap umbrella strollers). Crazy ... but fun!

WOW! Just my husband and I did NYC last year and we said we couldn't imagine taking our kids until they were older. You guys are super parents! (we already knew that!) Love the updates!

You guys look like you had a great time! We went to D.C last year in the winter with 4 kids and it was Fun Craziness! I'm sure NY was a blast and a lot crazier. Our goal is to get there one day, although I think me and my hubby will go alone first and then venture out with the kids!
