i am so excited to share some photos with you guys today from our day at coney island a couple weeks ago! neither josh or i had ever been before, and it has been on our list of things we’d love to do as a family with the kiddos for ages now. i am so glad we finally made the trek out there, because you guys, that place is fun!
i am also excited to share some info with you all today about a fun campaign we are a part of this month for google express! i have talked about how much we love and use them before here and also when i hosted an event for them in washington d.c. last year here. they make city life so much easier by basically doing your shopping run to multiple stores around the city for you, delivering it all to your door! you can do one order online or on their app, eliminating all the time spent traveling to and from multiple stores around the city, standing in line, and schlepping it all back to the apartment. the service gives you back your weekend or afternoon or night of doing errands, and for us that means we’re able to spend more time together doing fun things like a full day of play at coney island!
you can get your everyday essentials from a nearby drugstore, office supplies, books, and larger items from costco in the same order. since google express has fast delivery, we think it is especially helpful when we run out of something and need it right away! some of the things we ran out of and ordered recently are construction paper so the kids could still do some arts and crafts on a rainy day, paper towels (which we unfortunately use way too many of and always seems to run out of and can’t keep up with!), hand soap and refill, and the kids food pouches (all from target), our favorite vitamins (from vitamin shoppe), and other random things like the kids’ swim goggles from REI that were delivered in just a few hours before swim lessons. we have gotten swim diapers for conrad from toys r us and sparkling water in bulk from costco too. there is a code at the bottom of this post for anyone who would like to give google express a try for the first time!
here are a few of my favorite pictures below from our day at coney island. i love how using our google express service allows for more time to spend together and less time running around doing errands at a bunch of different stores.
trying to break it to them softly that we’re about to sit on the train for over about an hour! haha. showing them on the map that we are going to the very last stop on the train, how exciting is that?! ;)
when at coney island, you must have a nathan’s hot dog for lunch, right?!
but seriously, how beautiful is this backdrop on the beach! the prettiest!
this photo will most likely top all other photos of my boys forever and ever.
ice cream cones from coney cones!
after samson discovered this motorcycle ride, he asked to go on it over and over again! uh oh! (he went on it three times total, but he would have stayed right there all day!)
i love how conrad was willing to put his hands and arms up in the air when we were on this ride together. it’s adorable how fast he picks up on things and then just goes with it!
high fiving eleanor as he passed her each time!
desperately working on getting him to forget he’s wearing a hat and keeping it on his head! also, conrad spilt an entire bottle of water on himself when he was sitting in the stroller, which or course made his pants look extra awesome for a little while there. ;)
the best day together with my little family and loved that we were able to make the time to go and cross this off our summer bucket list!
