We finally made our way downtown to Gansevoort Street to see the Whitney Museum’s New Building. While there was a 35 minute wait to get in, it was worth it once we got to see the sunset over the Hudson and pinkish hues on the surrounding buildings at dusk. And of course the Archibald Motley paintings clearly inspired Zoe enough to get her drawing while there.

I’m not sure I can do a nine hour marathon of Halloween again, but it sure was fun albeit exhausting. We started at the parade at noon, and then had a party in our alley until dark when everyone went out to collect candy at least until 9pm.
Thank you gregkessler.com for all the great photos!

It’s the season for pumpkins again, yes? We learned this time around to NOT put our pumpkins out too early though … last year the squirrels ran off with one, and ate as much of it as they could. But eating everything flavored with pumpkin is my favorite past time… so I kind of understand.

The nicest thing about our friends coming in from London (aside from playing all day) is that they force us to look at parts of the city that we haven’t seen in awhile. For example: Chinatown in Manhattan (instead of the one in Queens) and Little Italy. I had no idea there was so much great art painted on the lamp posts and outdoor areas in lower Manhattan lately! And of course we love exposing Tessa to all our favorite eats – including one real close to home at the farmer’s market. We miss you guys already!
