This weekend we took our little family on our annual trip to New York City -- tagging along on David's business trip. We arrived on Friday afternoon and headed to the first of two dates with old friends. The first up in Columbus Circle and the other down in SoHo.
With no one in my current town that really knows me, it's always so great to be in the company of someone who has known me for a very many years. In SoHo, nostalgia kicked in over cupcakes and cobblestoned streets. Why did we move again? Of course, I stopped into Purl for some fabric and felt. Ahh lovely!
Saturday started with Alice's Tea Cup, again, for a yummy breakfast served with fairydust and wings. Then a quick walk up to the Natural History Museum where we were blown away, again, by the big Blue Whale dangling from the ceiling and all the other treasures. The girls pulled out their iPad and took a thousand pictures of anything and everything that piqued their interest.
We spent the afternoon with their grandparents and cousins, that came in from New Jersey to spend the afternoon at the Central Park zoo. And a filling dinner at Carmines altogether.
Sunday was strange. Alice and Dave went off to Hoboken to eat at Tony Balooney's -- a pizza place run by his close friend Mike. Leah and I headed to Lincoln Center for brunch with a friend Leah was pals with in Kindergarten and continues to call her friend. I chatted with her mom while the girls reconnected as if a day hadn't gone past since they were last together.
