weekend road trip!

LOVE TAZA ROADTRIP PA-11

no matter how much we love new york city, sometimes it just feels really good to get out of the city. we woke up on saturday morning and were like, “let’s get out of here” and i literally started throwing an extra pair of clothes for everyone into a duffle bag while josh ran around the corner and rented a car. the kids had a few morning commitments (saturdays are for birthday parties when you’re four!), so we waited until they ended around 1PM and then started driving.

we drove about an hour and a half out of the city towards pennsylvania and ended up spending most of our weekend in bucks county passing through towns like doylestown, which is absolutely adorable. there are so many breathtakingly beautiful farms in the area and we had a delicious meal at genevieve’s kitchen as well as ice cream for the kiddos at nina’s waffles on the cutest main street in doylestown.

i didn’t pull the camera out very much over the weekend, but we did bring it along to brunch at genevieve’s yesterday morning, so a few photos below. how cute is that old movie theatre?!

conrad sees every puddle as an opportunity to hop and jump and splash everyone around him!

josh and i split this pork belly and broccoli rabe sandwich which was uh-mazing. i think i need more sun dried tomato in my life because that was our favorite part.

we’ve found one of the best games to keep an active toddler occupied while we wait for our food at a restuarant is to ask them to organize all the sugar packets on the table by color. if you have a trickster on your hands like we do with conrad, it’ll turn into the biggest gigglefest as they organize them all correctly, but then he will slip a yellow sugar packet into the wrong section on purpose and basically, it’s a whole lot of happy laughs.

(if that doesn’t work for long, yes. iPads are also gold.)

parts of the area reminded me a lot of georgetown in DC, which is probably why it stole my heart so quickly.

    Looks so fun! I’d love it if you did a post on NYC getaways WITHOUT a car! I’m one of those New Yorkers without a license :)

  3. We felt like that some weekends when we were living in New York- and it always seems to be falls and early spring when you just get the itch to leave the city!! Seems like you guys found some fun spots to explore! Thanks for sharing! Xox

    Can I ask where you rented a car from? I live in Astoria and feel like renting a car is such a hassle that it’s not worth it in the end. We end up having to take a car service to the airport, renting a car from an airport rental place, and then driving out. Ends up costing a fortune and taking hours just to get out. Interested in any advice you might have!

    Aw Doylestown is right by my home town! cute cute

  6. Lindsey

    We have a small business and live in Doylestown-I have been reading your blog for years! There a bunch of great things for you do in the area with kids like the Bucks County Childrens Museum next time you come. Also Kids Castle in Central Park is so fun in the summer time.

  7. Carrie

    What a cute little town! It’s so nice to get out of the busy city and visit somewhere more slow-paced. Looks like you all had a great time!

    If you go back when it’s warm, definitely look up Castle Park! It’s so fun – huge playground that looks like a castle, tons of picnic spots and a shallow creek that is great for exploring! And if you go a little north of doylestown, owowcow is an amazing ice cream spot!!

    Oh, you were out near where my family and I live!! It’s a charming area with lovely people and wonderful shops and restaurants. My hubby and I love to pack the kiddos up in the SUV and drive 20 minutes into the heart of Bucks County. It’s perfect for families. Glad you enjoyed your time.

  10. Lily

    Such a sweet idea to get away! Looking at those cones really makes me crave ice cream on this cloudy/rainy day in California! Also lovin’ your shades!

  11. Lo

    Things always look so fun with your family! I can’t wait to have weekend roadtrips with my future gang.

    Also, side note. Your bangs and glasses married with Eleanor’s top knot are KILLING ME. Girl gang vibes, so cool.

    Lo

    My hometown !! Absolutely love loving there.
    Check out peddlers village which is about 15 minutes north of here. Fabulous around Halloween
    And of course New Hope as well
    So glad you enjoyed it.

    I grew up in Doylestown! It’s the best place…seriously ever. I’m living in NYC now too and getting back to DTown every once in a while is a much-needed break. When/if you go back when it gets warmer you MUST go to Kids Castle, your kids would love it. There are so many great things for kids in Bucks County- tubing down the Delaware River, swimming at Fanny Chapman pool, scavenger hunts through Mercer Museum, the Michener Art Museum (art classes for kids!), biking or canoeing around Lake Galena, Fourth of July Bike Parade at Fonthill, farmers markets in the center of Doylestown on Saturday mornings, strawberry/blueberry/blackberry/peach/apple picking at Solebury Orchards…plus SO much more!! Also so many fun hayrides and corn mazes and fall activities, too. It’s seriously the best!

  14. Tracy

    Love exploring local small towns. Your post inspired me to head out to New Hope this week on one of my two days off!

    Love E’s outfit!

    Have a great week, Davis Family!

  15. Jacinta

    Beautiful photos! I have never eaten broccoli in a sandwich before. It looks delicious. We have played many a game of organize the sugar packets too to pass the time in restaurants.

  16. So I am curious, do you guys own a car or do you belong to a rental.
