Welcome to New York

The girls and I headed east for fall break for a long weekend in New York City. Aunt Katie joined us, too!

We began our Friday with a visit to Central Park, which was gorgeous and a bit more green than I expected for this time of year. 

Next stop was the Museum of Natural History, which the girls know and love because of the “Night at the Museum” movie. 

Ben Stiller was nowhere in site, but they did find this guy, and promptly offered him a piece of gum (it was quietly declined).   
As I suspected, Olivia loved the mineral and gem exhibits, suggesting the quartz below would make a good souvenir. 

After the museum, we headed to Midtown to see the Fashion Institute of Technology Museum for Ava, then we wandered through the Garmet District. The girls noticed this store, filled with thousands of zippers,and they insisted we send a photo to Gramma. She was appropriately impressed.    
Next up, Mood, the fabric store of choice for Project Runway. We came away with black and white polka-dot swimsuit fabric, earmarked for a retro bikini project. 

That night, we took the subway and met a friend of mine in Brooklyn for the best pizza I’ve ever had (the Dangerfield!), as well as for a donut Katie couldn’t stop talking about the rest of the weekend.

In all, a great first day. More soon!

    You sure know how to plan a trip! Sounds exhausting – can’t wait to hear the rest! We will be staying in Brooklyn – will have to try this pizza!!

    It’s definitely worth a visit! The chef is from Kansas City. DOUGH is right around the corner, too…
