On Saturday we decided to explore a new neighborhood. We hopped on the subway to Times Square and then transferred to the shuttle over to Grand Central Station. From there we walked East toward the UN. We then made our way back uptown with an early dinner stop at Dos Caminos and of course a little treat from Dylan’s Candy Shop. It was a great day of exploring. Here are my pics of the beautiful tall architectural wonders from Grand Central Station to the United Nations. Hope you enjoy =)  Have a fabulous Wednesday!

This past Saturday while anxiously awaiting the end of the world (NOT!) we decided to get out and enjoy a rain free day in the city. After the girls gymnastics classes at Chelsea Piers we wandered along the water and then meandered into Chelsea and the Meatpacking district. It was a beautiful day and this is definitely one of my favorite areas to explore in Manhattan. Hope you enjoy the pics!

Yesterday the girls had a half day of school due to parent teacher conferences. They wanted to do something “fun” so we planned a trip to go and see The Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum. Here are some pics that I took on our walk to and from the famous aircraft carrier. Hope you enjoy our latest adventure…
