NYC with Kids!


My children were such troopers this past Monday and Tuesday. They were up at 5am for the 6:30 train (thank goodness for the ipad, they watched a lot of super why on the way down). They walked four miles around the city on Monday and they finally got to bed around 9:30pm. I was a little worried about not having a stroller, but they were great, they walked or ran without complaint. My amazing friend Jaime helped wrangle the troops and was kind enough to be awoken at 6:15 by two little monsters!

Monday we managed to see the dinosaurs, the ocean creatures, and the planetarium show at the Museum of Natural History. We had lunch at the Shake Shack. I tried to get them to take a nap, it didn't happen so we played in Central Park, met Chesley and her beautiful baby girl, and had a dinner of pizza and salad at casa Chesley.

Tuesday we walked from the upper west side through the park to the central park zoo,


M and T had a wonderful time climbing all the big rocks in the park.  




We watched the sea lions get fed, the polar bear do laps, and the snow leopard take a nap. Then we walked over to Alice's Tea Cup, where some fairy dust and food revived the troops.  


Next they crashed hard and were off to their Grandparents house!
