Halloween 2019

Blake has been growing his hair for months so he could be a very authentic Thor. And I had to buy and return no less than FOUR costumes until we landed on the exact right one. I also got to help with Blake’s school Halloween party in the afternoon. It was my very last elementary…

East Village Foodie Tour

We all slept in the next morning, and after a very slow start, we headed out on our self-guided food tour of the East Village. But first, Blake earned $2 yesterday.  I kept him busy watching for dogs so he wouldn’t mind walking so much.  He got $1 for every 50 dogs he saw.  So…

Labor Day weekend in NYC

Our trip started on the right foot. We were checking in a bag with United, and the ticket agent told us that “children are a blessing” and then gave us all priority security passes. It was awesome! We got to the Sohotel about 10:30pm and quickly went in search of our first slice. All except…

Cousins slept over that night and…

Berlin by Bike

After our flight we met Carlie and Mave at the train station. It was so good to munch on her cute cheeks again. We bought the best strawberries I’ve ever tasted from Karl’s—a tiny strawberry stand in the middle of the Gesund-Brunnen train station. It was so fun to see Carlie’s apartment. She’s living the…
