being summer - there is hoards of tourist in the main sites, we never seen so many people at the natural history museum, I asked a security guard why today was so busy and he said, it was kinda a slow day. we had lunch at a great dosa place on amsterdam called hampton chutney co. - also amazing iced chai - the kids loved it, afterwards we walked around central park and I reluctantly took the kids to victorian gardens - a small amusement park - we were there for three hours, we couldn't get them to LEAVE!! as we were walking out to have a bite they spotted a park that had sprinklers and we thought sure a little run to cool off - they were soaked to the bone, and we got them to lay in the sun to dry off. our stroller got slightly damaged from the flight and we thought we would try our best with it, today the tires broke off and we had to get a new one, we were close by to time square and thought we would go to the gigantic toysrus to get the stroller - I don't know what posessed us to think that visiting time square was a good idea - we met lovely police horses that didn't mind being petted. tomorrow is seeing the city from up high.
