A Country Mouse Among City Mice

This weekend I left for the city and spent the weekend with brother Nate.

Several highlights were:
-Going to the super-crowded Lego store near Rockefeller Center.
-Visiting Nate's friends, the Cates, and Nathan came with us on some of our adventures.
-Traveling through the city by foot.
-Going to the Holiday Train Show at the NY Botanical Gardens, were replicas of buildings were built with nuts, twigs, gourds, etc.
-Grinding cinnamon at the Gingerbread Adventure with a mortar and pestle.
-Taking a tour around the gardens on a tram.
-Going to a concert where a orchestra and choir played Bach's Magnificat and Handel's Messiah, it was easily one of the most beautiful things I have ever heard.
-Attending Central Presbyterian Church on Sunday morning.
-Hanging out with my big brother Nate.

Though I had a great time, I have to say, I am glad I live in the countryside of the Hudson Valley.
