Fresh air? Crunchy leaves? Big smiles? Little giggles? New York, you’ve got this autumn thing down! Some photos below (sorry – there are a lot, I can’t help it!). I gave everyone a proper scrub down before we came back inside our apartment, but the amount of leaves inside our pockets, stuck inside our coats was crazy. Autumn, you win.
Over the weekend, we rented a car and escaped the city, and among other things, we visited a pumpkin patch for the very first time! We spent a good portion of our afternoon just hanging out with all the pumpkins. V had a fantastic time amongst the pumpkins but he much preferred the tractors and the hayride. August slept through the whole pumpkin adventure… We went to Wilkens Fruit & Fir Farm, in Yorktown Heights and it was great but […]
Trying to play “catch up” with my blog right now and wanted to share some photos from last weekend at Governors Island. Governors Island is only a quick ferry ride away from Brooklyn and it’s a great destination for kids. You can rent bikes (even tandem or 6-seater surrey bikes!) to explore the island on or ride down the longest slide in NYC at 57 feet at The Hills play area. The island offers some of the best views of […]
A couple weekends ago, the three of us got a little getaway, finally getting some much needed beach time. It was our first time to Montauk and it was so charming and pretty. The town has endless cafes, cute shops, flowers and fruit stands. We stayed right on the beach and hardly anyone was there. It was so quiet and relaxing. We don’t often get a chance to slow down our days, enjoy time as a family, be more present, listen to each other. […]
If you follow me along on Instagram you might have seen some balloons snaps from when we went to the Park Avenue Armory on Sunday to check out British Artist Martin Creed’s retrospective exhibition called “The Back Door”. We spent the majority of our time in the balloon room, because V could not get enough of it! Elsewhere in the exhibition, we encountered films of people vomiting, spitting yogurt and defecating, along an array of metronomes ticking at different speeds, and a […]
Wait, there’s more NYC Polaroid love! GP and I have also been listening to Vampire Weekend’s new song, Step, since it came out a few days ago. I’m especially in love with the music video since – guess what?! – it’s all about New York City and we can’t wait to be back!
Our little Big Apple series now plunges into its final stretch. Thanks for following along! (And you can also read all our New York posts from the beginning here). Looking through these photos definitely validates my love for this fascinating city. It may get ridiculously freezing there when it’s cold, or so humid your face is falling off when it’s hot… It may have excessive amounts of rubbish and rats everywhere (Oh rats… I really hate rats), but this place […]
