Mom & Dad in New York [Day One, 12/20/07]

This Christmas my parents decided New York was the place to be. We had a great nine-day family vacation here in Harlem and in Gramercy. It was awesome.

The next nine posts will cover our day to day activities.

After a red eye flight, my parents came ready to hit the ground running. Day one was all about the classic "Christmas in New York" experience. We walked across 34th St. and up 5th Ave. to see the elaborate holiday displays. Next we strolled through Rockefeller Center. To top it all off, Mom and I surprised Dad by taking him to see Les Miserables. We got him good, too. He didn't even see it coming!

Dad thought we were going to go home to relax. Then he saw the marquee.
