NYC & Disney Cruise Day 9

We were dropped off back in New York City at the crack of dawn. We had to have our bags out the night before, and then we ate breakfast at 6:30 in the morning, and they kicked us off the ship early early. We got a taxi to our hotel and dropped off our stuff. We had decided to hop on the City Sightseeing tour, because it appeared to have the most fun places to see. Big mistake. Our first guide made off-color jokes and sexual innuendoes at every possible point.
We got off at Grant's Tomb. Another bus was supposed to come 15 minutes later, but it didn't show up for at least an hour. When we got on, the tour guide said something about how she appreciated the driver making the bus work even though it was broken.
Outside of Yankee Stadium, our bus broke down. Like it couldn't go any more. We stayed on the bus for a while, hoping it would be able to start again, but finally decided that we were tired, hot, and wanted to go back to the hotel.

 So we hopped on the subway at the station right by the stadium, and found a fast subway that would take us back to the hotel. And one of the other subways on the line broke down, so we had to spend over twice the amount of time first allotted to get back and stop at every single stop between Times Square and Yankee Stadium. Reagan fell asleep on the subway.
We got back and got the stroller for the kids. Davis fell asleep while we were foraging for food. We finally found nourishment, and went back to the hotel to try and take a nap. It worked for Grandma and Grandpa, but Davis and Reagan had already slept, so they wanted to play with Mom and Dad instead of letting us sleep.

After a slight recovery, we went back out to Times Square and met up with one of my friends from Study Abroad in London. She's living with her husband in New Jersey, and we haven't seen each other in years, so it was fun to get together.
