For Christmas, Rooney got tickets to see "Wicked" on Broadway.
Of course you can't send a 12 year old to the Big Apple alone;
and someone had to be the driver...
She and I spent a whirlwind weekend together in New York City making some fun memories.
It was her inaugural visit to Times Square, and she LOVED it!
We wandered, shopped, ate and explored.
We found the Panama flag at Rockefeller Plaza!
Then we enjoyed the views from Top of the Rock:
we pretty much had the place to ourselves.
...and 5th Avenue!
We were only brave enough to go into a few of the lower-end shops;
I was somewhat fearful that one of the doormen might take my daughter as collateral.
It was a FAST day--so much to see, and so little time.
It was CHILLY!
And "WICKED" was AMAZING.
