American Girl Place with Mor-Mor!

Mor-Mor is in town visiting us for a few days, and we went to the American Girl Place in NYC with her to celebrate Emily’s birthday! We had a very lady-like lunch, fed our dolls tea, and did a bit of shopping! Thank you Mor-Mor for the awesome time!

Happy 4th Birthday Emily!

I’ve been waiting FOREVER to be four and today was finally the day! I went on a special date with Daddy and Abby to the diner for a birthday breakfast and then came back and opened my presents! Then, we headed to Kidnetics for my friend birthday party, and we all had so much fun! After leaving there, Mommy picked up lunch and we headed to the park for a picnic and a play date! We’re planning on going out to dinner to celebrate tonight, and I should be plenty rested, because I passed out from exhaustion as soon as we got home today! Thank you everyone for the cards, calls, gifts & emails!

It is over 70 degrees here today, so we just had to have a special birthday picnic at the park & have some playtime. We’ve been waiting for weather like this all winter, and it’s finally here!

Spring is FINALLY coming!

The weather is FINALLY starting to get a little warmer (if you call 45 degrees warm), so we headed out to enjoy the Bronx Zoo today with our Nannie. Our family got a season pass this year, and we can’t WAIT to go back again soon!

Ben LOVED the monkey house, and the monkey’s loved him too!

There were still some animals that weren’t out yet because of the cold weather, but we got to see quite a few of them!

Our season passes included tickets to the 4D show, which was playing a short bit of Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs! We loved the show… especially with our seats moving, water spraying in our faces & bubbles everywhere!
