New York or Bust


Are we going to New York, or are we not was the question on our minds all day yesterday. The anticipation of whether our flight would be cancelled was all we could think about. Finally, we made the decision that our flight was 99% going to take-off towards New York so we started packing. We packed into the night and made a couple of last minute trips to Walmart before leaving for the airport at 4am this morning.


We expected the airport to be a zoo, but when we got there it was the complete opposite. After a quick jaunt through security, we headed toward the gates. Our flight was one of the first planes out of LAX headed towards New York City and it was completely full with not a seat open.

As we all packed into the plane we were overwhelmed with excitement about our adventures ahead in New York with Razor. The flight was not the smoothest flight with smoke blowing out of the engine before the entire cabin filled up with smoke. It was a little bit of a bumpy ride, but we flew in style on the plush Virgin Airlines.




As we flew over the freshly snowed East Coast just hours after blizzard Nemo, all we could see was white. We had never seen the coastline look the way it did as we flew overhead. Miles and miles of white snow covering everything.


Then it was time to land in New York! With less than two hours of sleep, four cups of coffee and one cheese platter we were ready to take New York by storm. When we first walked outside, we were a little shocked at how cold it was. We knew that New York was cold – but didn’t think it would be this cold.



We hitched a ride with a nice lady and within just a few minutes we were ready for our adventures in the city. Stay tuned for many more adventures as we explore New York and the Toy Fair with Razor.
