Day Two of NYC

We started today at the Museum of Natural History. We saw many wonderful things but this section of sequoia was my favorite.

It's not easy to take pictures of the blue whale, but here's one of the attempts.

After we left the Museum we went strolling through Central Park. During our walk a fairly serious thunderstorm brewed up. Luckily we made to Belvedere Castle to wait out the storm. Of all the places to stuck during a storm in NYC, you couldn't do much better than finding shelter in this little castle.

We were still soaking wet when we arrived at Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum. I've been to wax museums before that weren't so great so I had pretty low expectations. But it was a fantastic place. You can go right up to the pieces and pose with them. We took tons of pictures of course. Here's The Man and Boy hanging out with Ozzy.

And this is the Incredible Hulk ready to squish a very willing Boy.

We had dinner a noodle shop and then made our way to the Empire State Building. The outside observatory was closed because of lightening. We were just about to leave when the doors were finally opened.

And that made the visit perfect.
