Springtime in New York

Nothing really beats getting to take on Manhattan on foot. We walked all around town this past weekend.. from Central Park to the High Line to Madison Square Park to see strange orbs filled with art. I am so happy the weather is improving – I can’t wait for more treks around the city.

What are you up to this weekend?

(and to see our appearance for Valentines day check out the post here.)

Believe it or not the kids biked all the way to Citi Field and back – 2 miles each way from our home – and checked out Opening Day. There was a bouncy house, balloon animals made on the spot, and face painting… what better way to welcome the spring weather?

Passover with cousins!

We made a long and crazy road trip to Rochester – where the weather was balmy enough for a day (or 2) to hang in the hot tub. Cousin soup! It was a weekend of hiking and playing in the woods, and of course AMAZING FOOD and performances. Zoe cried when we headed home because she already misses all her big cousins wanting to carry her everywhere!

On the A, E and C line at 14th Street in Manhattan one can find these adorable sculptural ‘critters’ all over the platform. Ezra adores them – see more about them by clicking here.

It’s Sugar!

As if NYC needs another brilliant candy store, right? (Remember our trip to this one and this one?) Well while walking around the upper east side we were drawn into this great place. Zoe is still obsessing about getting her ears pierced… just to be able to get the sweet cupcake packaging with a new pair of earrings. And both mom AND daughter want a dress made of candy now! Have a sweet weekend –

We stopped in on a show that is all about how photographs are shared today, compared to how photos have been used in the past. Public Eye: 175 Years of Sharing Photography really had me reflecting on my own use of this blog and instagram… and how little photo archive I have of my own childhood compared to the mass of photos I have of my own children. Part of me always wishes I had the time to print photos and put them into albums the old fashioned way – so that the kids can access them constantly but let’s face it – I can store more images electronically in the end. Will this medium always be here or what new platform will come along?
