New York Thanksgiving, 2010

First stop: The American Museum of Natural History

Kerry and Alex with a couple of Anatotitans

On the streets on either side of the AMNH they inflate the balloons for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade:

Sponge Bob, not quite ready for prime time

Shrek secured in netting before the big day

Snoopy getting ready to lead the parade

Next, a quick stroll through Central Park on the way to lunch:
Bow Bridge

"Dedicated to the indomitable spirit of the sled dogs that relayed antitoxin six hundred miles over rough ice, across treacherous waters, through Arctic blizzards from Nenana to the relief of stricken Nome in the Winter of 1925. Endurance · Fidelity · Intelligence"

We got up a bit late and this was the crowd that greeted us in Times Square for the parade

Is that Shrek?

Spiderman hovers over the crowd

Hello Kitty prepares for deflation

Skaters in Bryant Park after the parade
