Sophie's Big Adventure










Continued notes from the holidays: The day after Christmas, our niece Sophie slept over and we had a pretty big time. We took subways and busses and walked all over, poking our heads in here and there. We tried to go ice skating but the line was too long and it was so cold, so we went to the movies instead (and sat in the front row which was pretty exciting) and then down to Chinatown to eat noodles, then to little Italy for dessert, we played mad-libs all night and then the next morning we painted pictures about our big New York Adventure...
