Empire State of Mind: Day 4

Our last day in NYC.  We were tired from barely getting any sleep, but that wasn’t going to stop us!
We got up bright and early and had breakfast in the room.
When we had our check-in snafu, they gave us complimentary room service.  So you betta believe we used it.
It was good too.
And yes, I ate it in bed.
We left the hotel and went to the Empire State Building.  
We went early to avoid lines and it was awesome just walking right through where there are usually hundreds of people waiting.
It was a bit overcast, but the views were great!
We just had time to do our last souvenier buying, and hopped a cab back to the hotel.
The same friendly private car man who picked us up at the airport came and got us.  We liked him so much, we called him back.  He was so kind and hospitable, giving us a tour as we drove one last time through the city.
We had a rough flight into Chicago.  Poor Tyler almost got sick.  He was so green.  Good thing we had a long layover.  He found a fan blowing and rested under it for a while until everything settled.
Then it was time for our Chicago feast.  Mom is originally from Chicago, so she wanted a taste of home.  We hit the food court and got Chicago deep dish pizza, a Chicago hot dog, and an Italian beef sandwich.  We all shared it and it was good.
 We landed in Little Rock at 6 p.m. Yes, there is an airport here in Fort Smith.  And I know there is one an hour away in Fayetteville.  But by using flights out of LR, we were able to travel with mom…and their flight times gave us the maximum time in NYC.  So we had a 3 hour drive back home…but it was totally worth it.
We are still unpacking and doing laundry, but the trip was so great!  I LOVE New York and can’t wait to go back again.  Tyler wasn’t completely sold on it.  He told mom and I that while he had fun, we could keep NYC as a girls trip locale. πŸ™‚  I don’t think mom will mind that one bit. πŸ™‚
