We made it to the play and it was incredible! A very small theater with top notch acting and producing. Even the small kids theaters here are amazing. The play was in both Spanish and English, bouncing around between the two, and surprisingly very easy for Kevin and I to follow. Of course, the kids had no problem. This was much more exciting for them than Zorro since we were so much closer to the action. We'll definitely return frequently to this theater.
Then on Sunday morning we continued our search for a real New York bagel. Surprisingly, our first two attempts were not hits. But I knew we hit the jackpot when I turned the corner and saw a line out the door. Always a good sign. And Absolute Bagels didn't disappoint. I think we've found our regular Sunday morning place.
The bagel shop was a few blocks from us, up towards Columbia, so we decided to walk off the bagels by wandering up to Columbia and seeing where Kevin lived when he was in grad school there. Then we continued wandering until we stumbled upon the Cathedral of Saint John the Devine which according to Wikipedia is the largest cathedral and Anglican church and fourth largest Christian church in the world. It was immense. And beautiful. And a little scary. They were having Sunday mass and Ella was scared to even go inside. Once we were in, she stood near the door the entire time, completely overwhelmed.
(see, she's kissing her baby's head to comfort herself)
