This past weekend our Saturday adventure took us to our new favorite neighborhood to explore- Tribeca. I am not sure why we haven’t spent more time here as this is such an incredible spot for food, culture, shopping and parks. It is a truly wonderful area to wander around in. We hopped off the subway at Chambers St. and headed toward the Hudson River eager to check out Pier 25 which includes a playground, mini-golf, beach volleyball courts, basketball, a skating park and places to just sit down and enjoy the phenomenal view. It was heavenly. I felt like we had escaped the hustle and bustle of the city as we casually strolled along the river. After some mini-golf and meandering we decided to head back in a few blocks to the beautiful Washington Market Park where the girls cooled off in the sprinklers at the playground and we relaxed shaded by the big leafy trees. We even checked out a local pub for Linner (lunch/dinner). Here are some pics from the day! I highly recommend exploring this nabe, I think it just might be on the top of my list right now!! Enjoy and have a super-fantastic Wednesday!

I have a pretty killer two-putt game 😉

Very serious mini-putters!

June is turning out to be a blur. All of the days seem to be running together… one end of year presentation, picnic, get-together, meeting into another. I have to constantly be looking at my calendar and setting reminders for myself so that I will not miss something. I wish I had the technology to divide myself into two, but no huge science brain has figured that one out yet, so instead I gulp caffeine at an alarming rate and sprint from one activity to another =) I know that we are all in the same barely remaining afloat boat. Luckily these events are the fun ones, the culmination of hard work, the showing off of all of the great stuff that our kids have been doing throughout the year. As much as I complain about the crazy, I love watching every single presentation and going to every get together, the smile on the kids faces makes everything alright in the world. Here are a few pics from our recent insanity, the blur that June has become. So, if I owe you a phone call, a lunch date or if I simply passed you on the street in a bit of a daze, I apologize, the hazy lazy days of summer will be here soon ;)!
