Everything went well flying from LA to JFK. We had a SuperShuttle pick us up at 8 o'clock and there was very little traffic to the airport. We got into the airport and checked in our luggage and everything went smoothly. For some reason I got checked very thoroughly by TSA - it was a little exciting. Our flight left on time and we got to JFK with no problem. From JFK we took a Lyft to the apartment, it was about an hour drive from the airport. The apartment wasn't as good looking as it shows on the website. I think from now on I'm gonna stop renting through rental sites and just go directly to hotels. We can afford it, and it's usually a lot more comfortable and less "yuckie".
Jan woke up this morning with a really bad sore throat and a terrible case of laryngitis. I took the kids to breakfast and we stopped off and got Jan some medicine at the local drugstore while she stayed in bed. After that Sara and Brandon went exploring down by the Brooklyn Bridge area and Sam, Jan and I decided to have a day of rest so we could all relax and Jan could start to feel better.
Our last day in New York City. Jan rallied to go to the Rockettes show. I didn't want her to get too cold so we took a Lyft to the show and we got in pretty quickly without having to stand out in the cold. The show was a Rockettes Christmas special and it was really good - we enjoyed it very much. After the Rockettes show we went to the Top of the Rock which is the observation tower at the top of Rockefeller Center. It was really blowing hard and really cold up there but we managed to get a few pictures and then headed back down and had some lunch. After that we headed back to the apartment and spent the rest of the day packing and getting ready to leave. We enjoyed New York but didn't like the apartment very much and we were ready to get home to our nice warm beds.
