Happy Easter!

I needed to run some errands in the garment district yesterday, and Tsia came along so we made a detour to the carrousel at Bryant Park. It seemed like a nice way to celebrate the coming of spring, and I think it would be a great tradition. My favorite part of the carrousel is the ticket booth, which is about as adorable as can be. That and the fabulous French music that accompanies the trip. Bryant Park gives a wonderful flavor of Paris; very refreshing, especially in the spring.

  1. EEeekk! What eye candy! I wasn't there, but your camera totally captured the moment and it feels like I was! Beautiful photos and your little one couldn't look happier. What a fantastic new tradition.

  2. I love your photos of the carousel! the gallopers (as we call the horse carousels) are my mum's favourites and I am sure that she would love to ride those beautifully painted horses!! I love that Tsia chose the frog! How cool is he!!

    This looks lovely.

    What is amazing is that I have actually been to Bryant Park (last September) on my one and only overseas trip (I'm an Aussie). I recognised the park from your photos before scrolling down to the bottom of your post where I could confirm it.
