First Metro-North Experience

Today I had to head into NYC to pick up a check from a client. I decided, since kids ride free until they are five around these parts, to take Elena on a special trip. I would go get the check, go to the bank, and then take Elena to get her special poop present. (Yes, I bribed her if/when she decided to poop on the potty on her own a few times, I would let her pick out a toy - oh the glamorous life of a mom). So, it was a pretty quick turnaround trip, but nice to be out with Elena alone. I had already taken Liam for a three mile walk in the morning, so he had his mommy outing already. (Wow, could I pat myself on the back anymore for being a decent mom today?)

Anyhow, she loved the train and took in all the sights and sounds. She charmed everyone around her. She was a hit. Her red hair took Manhattan by storm...we got more comments and compliments than usual! Here are some photos of the short trip:
