Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade!!

This was one of the most awesome things ever!!! There were about 3 MILLION people there for the parade. And I completely believe it. We could not even move there were so many people there. And we had to hold our cameras up in the air to get any pictures. We took a couple of pictures to show the crowd. It was craziness but a experience of a lifetime!! We are so glad we got to go!! :) We can mark that one off the list! haha Enjoy the pictures!

Thanksgiving in New York City!!!

So, Myself and 3 other friends (Sarah, Melodie, and Venita) decided that we were going to go to New York City for Thanksgiving this year!! WE had a BLAST!!! This was one of the greatest trips ever!!! We had soo much fun! We got to see the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade! Not even gonna was amazing!!! We did TONS of stuff! We walked the city for about 12 hours everyday for 4 we were pretty exhausted at the end of each day. We went to Times Square, Central Park, took a carriage ride through Central Park (it was amazing), went to Madame Traussads Wax Museum, Empire State Building, Grand Central Terminal, Chrysler Building, Madison and Fifth Avenues, Tiffany's, China Town, Little Italy, Statue of Liberty, Battery Park, World Trade Center Memorial Site, Serendipity, Macy's, Bloomingdales, Madison Square, Union Square, Rockefeller Center, Had a Charmin Experience (LOL)...long story... and we saw sooo much more!!! It was a great time!! We got to stay in an apartment...and it was amazing! *Sigh* I love NYC!!!

The first set of pictures is from when we got there Wednesday night, Thursday after the Parade, Times Square, Madame Tussauds Wax Museum, and taking a Carriage Ride through Central Park!!

This set of pictures is from when we went to Bloomingdales, Macys, Herald Square, Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center Plaza (we were going to go ice skating but we ran out of time), Back to Central Park, and Madison Square Gardens.

This last set of pictures is a combination of our last two days. We went to Ground the Memorial Site, China Town, Little Italy, Battery Park, Statue of Liberty, Grand Central Terminal, Tiffany's, and Madison Avenue (where all the big Christmas decorated shops are).

Gotta love these moments...

So today, Pastor Gleason was preaching and he did a phenominal job as usual! He was closing and he had just asked us to stand. He was telling a story about how he had called out to God. It was one of those really deep moments and it was really quiet. God was really moving and working on people. So Pastor was telling this story and he called out (in a shouting voice) "GOD!!!!" and this little kid goes, "WHAT?!!!!". HAHA It was SOOOOO funny....the whole church literally BUST out laughing! Pastor just started laughing so hard. But it was one of those moments where you had to laugh. But Pastor pulled it back together and God moved in the rest of the service. But it was hilarious!!! We haven't had a crazy moment like that in a while...but ya gotta love 'em! Guess thats why they say..."Out of the mouths of babes!" haha
