I did it. I dusted off the camera and took it out tonight on my date with Kate. I just downloaded over 350 pictures. I haven't done a dump of photo's in almost a year. There were pic's of Henry's baptism, our summer vacation, Kate being born, Christmas pic's, etc.,. I'll have to share those soon. But for now, I wanted to share some photo's from my date night with Kate! We took the train down to Grand Central Terminal (I always want to call it Grand Central Station but that's not technically what it's called). It's pretty incredible here. I used to to take the Amtrak from Boston to NYC back in my working days and always came through here. It's vast and grand and the architecture is jaw dropping. Anyway, this wasn't our final destination, just somewhere that we were passing through. We hopped off the subway and walked a few blocks down to The Morgan Library & Museum. You should know this about me: The Little Prince is my all-time favorite children's book. I read it for the first time about 25 years ago (that makes me sound really old) as an early teenager and then ended up reading anything by Antoine de Saint-Exupery that I could get my hands on. My brother-in-law brought me back a french version of the book back in 1997 which I cherish so much (not that I can read French). When I heard there was going to be original manuscripts and early illustrations for the book at the library I knew I had to go. No pictures were allowed in the exhibit (I only have this really bad one I took with my phone right before we went in) but I have to tell you one of the most amazing things I saw was actually nothing by Antoine de Saint-Exupery but rather the original screenplay by Orson Welles from the early 40's. As a 27 year old, he had just finished Citizen Kane and wanted to make "The Little Prince" into his 3rd movie. They reached out to Walt Disney for a collaboration and from what I gather the two of them butted heads and the movie was never made. It was seriously so fascinating. Anyway, I've never read this book to my children (all my various copies are in our storage unit) but I think I'm going to check it out from the library this week. The book has so many sweet and tender messages in it, I know they'd love it. The exhibit is free on Friday nights from 7-9 for any of you locals who want to check it out (you really should check it out).We walked back to Grand Central and thank goodness Shake Shack was still open because I promised Kate some ice-cream for our date night! A strawberry shake and cheese fries was the perfect ending to our date :) Kate doesn't usually ride in the stroller much these days but I knew we'd be home late and she'd be exhausted. The second the express 3 train left Times Square, she was out like a light.
