last day in NYC, paparazzi, and celebrities....

Our last day was by far my favorite day! Again, no plans:) We decided just to walk around 5th Ave a little bit and then spend the majority of the day in Central Park. As we were walking to the park, I really had to go to the bathroom so we went in Trump Towers...As we were walking, Kaz said, "is that?" I knew immediately who it was and say YES! It was George Ross[Executive Vice President and Senior Counsel for Trump, also an advisor on the Apprentice!]. I SO BADLY wanted to talk to him...I even told Kaz we could just sit outside the restaraunt until he leaves, but Kaz wouldn't let me:( We were both pretty excited to see him because we LOVE the apprentice!
After our first celebrity sighting, we made our way to Central Park...We walked through the zoo, watched the sea lions play, and just enjoyed taking our time....We made our way over to my favorite part of the park, the mall. We sat for a good hour watching people walk by, and then we heard a lot of clapping behind us. We turned around and it appeared to be a lot of film equipment...We started walking that way and the closer we got, the more I saw they were filming a movie...I saw a couple men with cameras so I asked what was going on. One man said they were filming, Thanks for Sharing. I googled it and saw that Pink, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Mark Ruffalo were in the movie. We sat for awhile out of the way just watching to see what would happen...and then I RECOGNIZED a few people that I had seen the day before...I recognized the PAPARAZZI! Within a matter of about 15 minutes, they went from being a group of 5 to 30! I was so excited....Moments later, a black SUV pulled up with Gwyneth Paltrow. Kaz and I split up so we could try and scout out the best place to watch...I even had people ask me if I was apart of the paparazzi. I should have fibbed because then I would have got a closer spot to watch:) We watched them film the movie for about 3 hours...We saw different scenes, outfits, etc. It was probably one of the neatest things I've ever done and made the perfect ending to our trip!
