NYC (first look)

we are truly enjoying our time on the east coast.  we live in jersey, just a short 10 minute train ride from downtown manhattan.  we take public transportation on most days.  it truly is the easiest (& least scary) way to get around jersey & new york.  the boys enjoy getting around without car seats.  we tour the city like true tourists.  we walk around equipped with gps, train/subway schedules, & cameras strapped around our necks.  i truly do stick out like a sore thumb;  blondes, strollers/kids, & people who use turn signals are in the minority.  i've also been told at least a half dozen times that i'm obviously not from around here because i'm too polite.  i smile at people that i walk by & they look at me like i've lost my mind.  it's things like this that make me miss home.  oh, that & the fact that home doesn't have tornadoes/hurricanes.  did you know that we have a hurricane rolling through tonight?  i am not so excited.  i do enjoy the giants.  they have babysitting at the games for players' families, they have an amazing stadium, & the colors work well for me.  wish us luck tonight!  i'll post again the next time i find time to get on the computer (this is only my 2nd time on the computer since we got here.)
