Hello Gotham City

This past weekend Z, M and I headed to New York to visit Nana and Poppy. It is wonderful to see them and amazing to see how busy and active they are. Very lucky. We laughed a lot, ate a lot and had an amazing weekend. And we are exhausted!

We headed into the city on Saturday and roamed the streets. We hit Greenwich, the East Village and almost made it to the lower east side. Mario Batali's market, Eataly was where we spent a good portion of the day visiting with Rusty on the 15th floor Biergarten.

EATALY was spectacular. Gelato, butcher shop, fish market, you name something delicious, they had it in spades.

After we left EATALY we strolled downtown and sauntered through Union Square and the East Village.
We stopped at an adorable sweets shop, BLACK HOUND,

This was our haul...please be aware these truffles made the trek from NYC to Dallas.
M played at a playground in Great Neck, that I played at as a child. It's amazing how things come full circle.

M and Z got to to visit with his cousin in Queens, while Nana and I went into the city to see Book of Mormon. Holy moly. What a show! If you have the opportunity to see it, GO!
Z's cousin has a baby only four months younger, so M had a play date!

The plane ride back seemed to take years, as we were stuck next to a screaming baby the whole time: ours.
Folks without kids...I cannot express how awful it is to be the parent of that screaming baby.

Love traveling, but also love getting home!

  1. Truffles make an excellent thank you present for people that steal your floor steamer and Runner's World magazine.
