New York City

This weekend, Mom had a conference in NYC and Aunt Laurie and I tagged along!
Here we are eating at Angelo's (or is it Angelino's) which is right next to the David Letterman Studio (which our hotel was right next too)
This photo is for Trudy

Had fun at FAO, they really know how to greet their customers!

Tree at Rockefeller Plaza - now that put me in the holiday spirit!

In the crowd at the today show, we actually got on TV a few times.

Laurie on 5th avenue

The Cartier Building wrapped up like a present

We had a great time and packed every day full. Thanks for letting us tag along Mom!

Mike gives Griffin a bit of attention

Griffin had a great weekend, lots of new people and places. I am sure we all could have done without his eating an entire roll of toilet paper though!
