Fun in NYC

Patrick is constantly asking (more like begging/screaming/crying) to go on the train to New York. So Saturday we decided to take a trip in and see Peggy. Ron and I left Patrick with Peggy (and her awesome playground at Lincoln Towers) and we went to see the Grateful Dead exhibit at the NY Historical Society. (Which was really cool. We really enjoyed it) Then Peggy brought Pat over and met us and we went to the "amusement park" in Central Park where the ice skating rink is in the winter. Pat had so much fun on all the rides. As did Peggy; since she vounteered to be the one who joined him on the rides he wasn't allowed on by himself.
Then we headed to Mickey Mantel's for lunch and headed home.
It was a great day. Patrick was worn out. But when he woke up just as we got on the train, the next 3 hours was: "I WANT TO GO BACK TO PEGGY'S!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Thankfully it stopped when he went to bed.
Here are some pics...

Genius or master manipulator.....

Ok, so clearly our son thinks he has this figured out. He hasn't touched the potty since getting his prize for the poop. We are assuming he is thinking, 'well, if I wait a while longer, then go on the potty again, I can get another toy...then another...those idiots will buy me anything I want as long I keep stringing them along.' Well he is sadly mistaken.

Patrick pooped in the potty!!!! I know some people might ask why I would post this information, but others will understand our excitement! To the people who would ask why...I say to you - be happy I didnt post the picture I took. (Ron wasn't home, so we HAD to show Daddy!) He still isnt 100% there yet, but I NEVER thought he would hit this milestone so fast. Hopefully this is the beginning of being fully trained!!

And since he has the best memory, he was quick to remind me that he gets a big prize for going poop in the potty. So tomorrow we will be off to Toys R Us.
