if seen on instagram, mid-spring-break-week we also spent days in the west village eating pizza at joe's, grabbing our favorite donuts (the doughnut project!!!), and eating acai bowls from my favorite shop i never seem to get to in midtown. we made bunny bait with friends, and moved soccer practice to a perfect spot in central park. the days continued to roll forward with late/missed naps, mild weather, and tons of energy starting at 6:00am on the dot. most every day we spent out for 5-8 hours straight, walking the streets and playing in parks.
spring break spilled onto the following monday and tuesday, and these days were spent in washington square park, going to our favorite consignment shop, crashing the nyu chick-fil-a (MY GOSH WE STAND OUT), getting ice cream cones that were much too large at big gay, and finally, heading to see the coastline in larchmont, ny via train...
chick-fil-a's diet lemonade is just the beesssst drink!
each night concluded with a massive bathtub scrub (THE DIRT!!!), and usually involved me passed out in the middle of the rug by 5pm groaning in pain, "MY BAAAACKKK!!!"
our last morning of break, we took a train from grand central to larchmont, then walked a couple miles to the shoreline to play and picnic...
good news, no children fell off the steep cliffs.
it was SUCH a treat to play with friends every.single.day. we literally saw becca & her boys for 9 straight days. we missed our manhattan-to-brooklyn buddies, so having the "big kids" together again was a total treat! i can't believe how different life is with a kid in school- and to think i may lose jude soon, too, if we decide to put him in pre-k (it's all-day here). nyc is the best place to raise kids, but sometimes i feel like jude and i hold back exploring because i hate experiencing so much without elle! my heart is nearly exploding in anticipation for summer, but i'm trying to put my expectations in-check since we'll also have a new baby in-tow the next time elle has time off of school. this break was elle's time to choose her adventures, and we had a blast together playing in/around the city.
