A couple weekends ago we were back in the Boston suburbs and on ATVs again. Clearly I am lagging a bit on posting photos .. but this springy weekend was one that I couldn’t pass up sharing with everyone. What are YOU up to this weekend?
Have a lovely one!

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?

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 back to being cold here of course, and when we make that first foray to Central Park and then realize that we are freezing – it’s always great to pop into The Met Museum (again) for warmth and an afternoon of sketching sculpture.

While we went to Target to get Zoe her prize for sleeping in her own bed, a snow storm hit and we needed to stop somewhere warm and cozy to eat. What better cold-weather dish than broth and noodles in this the more authentic Chinatown of Queens? We did a bit of walking around to find an underground ‘mall’ of more restaurants, and discovered how dumplings are made. Biang’s panda prints and green dumplings are hands down the best!

Here are some last images of our week in Florida. As I write this 3-5 inches of snow have already been dumped on New York City, I’m sore from shoveling and hiking kids to school.. and these photos are seeming enticing.

When it was too chilly for the beach, this playground in Boca provided hours of fun for the kids. Lots of climbing space with little hidden areas of wheels and buttons meant imaginative play for the cousins – and the carousel offered a nice break before lunch.
