Grouchy Husband has a group of his closest friends in New Orleans from when he lived their in college and years after. Khanh is one of those friends. Last weekend he and his family came to visit. It was the first time their girls have visited New York so we planned site-seeing adventures. First stop was One World Observatory.
It was a busy week and I thought our tickets were for 9am but when we pulled the tickets out to give to the attendent, Grouchy Husband realized I bought the tickets for 10am. I felt SO bad making everyone get up at 6:30am. We used the wait time to take pictures. Their girls are the same age as ours so it was instant fun and friends.
What I’ve come to realize when you raise girls is at some age (different for each girl), posing for pictures becomes something natural and they love doing it. They create their own favorite poses.
They are happy to listen to direction on how to create poses for the camera.
And love to let loose and take a silly photo.
One World Observatory is on the 100, 101, and 102nd floors. It’s amazingly a less then 60 second elevator ride.
Once you get to the top, you can see the whole city. The girls found the Statue of Liberty, the little green mark on the island in the middle of the photo.
The observation decks provide 360 degree views and is an easy way to see the NYC landmarks.
The girls loved looking out the windows. They liked seeing where their Uncle Matt (kow-fu) and great grandmother (bak bak) lived.
They loved the Sky Portal. Cameras display what is doing on all the way down on the street. Baby used the bars to play hop scotch.
Even after a rocky start (with the mixup of the ticket time) we had an awesome time at the top of the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere.
