Lots of Laura's family members were there to greet us in NYC. We went on a river boat cruise around the entire perimeter of Manhattan. It was a 3 hour tour, a 3 hour tour... However, the weather was GREAT! In the picture below you can see the Statue of Liberty in the background.
This is how I roll... You saw me in Mark's backpack. Well, I have my own backpack that I carry around with my little friends who poke their heads out. Socks (front) and Little Big Monkey (back) accompany me on all of my travels. Little Big Monkey, as the name implies, is my "mini me." He was made to look just like me, right down to the pink eyes. The side pockets of my backpack contain my travel essentials - tabasco sauce and tooth paste. Tabasco sauce seasons my food, and the tooth paste keeps my breath fresh and clean.
After our cruise, we ate dinner and walked around the city for a while. Below I am doing my impression of King Kong attacking the Empire State Building. We had a fantastic day, and it was hard to leave so soon. However, my victory tour had to continue. There were lots more adventures to experience in my hometown of Pittsburgh! More to come soon... stay posted.
