after statue time was lunch. We finally made it back to a restaurant that John has only been raving over since we got married (he lived with his Aunt Toni for a summer to work for her and her software and support company). The name was Les Halles. He raved over the french onion soup as being transcendental. I have literally heard about this soup for over 8 years. I told him he had built it up in his memory. He assured me he hadn't. (oh and above was Aunt Toni's order of Escargot. Which I tried for the first time. It was actually pretty good!)
so the next day...(or should I say that night and into the next day) the kids had crazy high fevers, Maddy threw up, and they were cranky and just plain sick. I knew they had the flu, I also knew there probably wasn't much we could do for them, but their fevers were so high that I felt like we had to take them to the doctors. I told John and his Aunt we needed an urgent care. They both insisted there were no urgent cares that they could find close by. I was incredulous but believed them because I figured they know how to google as well as I do. Turns out there ARE urgent cares in brooklyn, but they didn't open until later and so John just told me there were none to save himself some hassle. ha
so the kids slept and hung out and got dosed with fever meds and popsicles
even the chandeliers were covered in pink flowers
only the fanciest chocolate milk for my girl
the cute dessert. pudding cup with oreo dirt under that flower :) and a heart shaped cake
then my friend Dan from ye olden BYU days met up with us at the American Girl store. what a trooper right? :) oh come on, he loved it. grant on the other hand did not love dan. sorry dan. he doesn't love hardly anyone.
this photo says, "we're so happy! cupcakes! weeee!"

the box says it all (and the dorky expression) this was on another day when we went to FAO Schwartz.
the piano from the movie Big. They LOVED it, like every other kid.
I couldn't understand why John wanted to see FAO Schwartz so much until we got in there. It may just be a toy store, but holy moly...WHAT A TOY STORE!
