July in Manhattan

In mid-July, Parker and I tagged along with Wendy on a trip to New York City for Wendy's work conference. We hit all of the major tourist destinations during a week that was likely a record breaker for heat! One day the humidity made it feel like 109 F! The huge crowds everywhere seemed to make the heat worse.

Below are a bunch of pictures that we took during the trip.

Carnegie Hall was about 2 blocks from our hotel

Times Square was an 8 minute walk from the hotel

On the subway heading downtown

One World Trade Center

Parker and Wendy at the North tower memorial beside the name of my father's friend (who was on flight 11)
"The Oculus" is an underground shopping mall at the base of the World Trade Center

Interesting architectural details inside the "Oculus"

One World Trade Center - great views and a mind-boggling 60 second elevator ride to the 102nd floor!

Wall mural in the Crocs Store (made with Crocs!)

Parker with a 4th of July milkshake!

The USS Intrepid Air, Sea, and Space Museum

Space Shuttle Enterprise

Parker's 'favourite building' was the UN Headquarters

Many people were taking pictures of the barricaded Trump Tower - and a few were giving it the finger!

The American Museum of Natural History

This selfie is just my way of proving to Parker that I am not that old!

Dum dum gimme gum gum.... (Night at the Museum)

Here is a time-lapse video of the craziness that is Grand Central Terminal. If the video doesn't work on this page, click here: https://goo.gl/photos/YEnwc2B1Nxi3iLDg7

Next stop this summer will be Portage la Prairie, Manitoba!
