Sunday Sunday Sunday!

Poor Todd, home less than 24 hours this weekend before heading off on another business trip. We wanted to make the most of an afternoon together, so we strapped the baby into the backpack and headed to midtown for a change. First a stop at the Pierpont Morgan Library to see the new Renzo Piano addition:

Then a jaunt over to Bryant Park. A ticket at the booth

for a trip on the carousel,

then a short sit-down to enjoy the weather and the Parisian atmosphere.

A stop at Beard Papa for a treat,

and a drop-in at the Whitney at Altria to see the other Andrea Zittel show.

And then we headed home again via the East River, where we watched the tug boats and sailboats on our way downtown. All in all, a pleasant afternoon with a few photographic memories.

  2. what a wonderful day out - I love the carousel and I want one of those cream puffs. And aren't kids in sunglasses the funniest/cutest thing?

    Just a quick thank you as well for showing the photos of my skirt - the thrill it gave me was quite silly really. I can't wait for your next tutorial!
