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?!
crossing the delaware river!
conrad sees every puddle as an opportunity to hop and jump and splash everyone around him!
they were playing regina spektor at this restaurant, so obviously it was the best meal ever. ;)
can’t with this adorable face! this sweet boy put on a performance at lunch of several very cool magic tricks!
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.)
panda was also with us for our 48 hour trip out of new york, of course.
parts of the area reminded me a lot of georgetown in DC, which is probably why it stole my heart so quickly.
can’t pose seriously for long.
this ice cream was some of the prettiest i’ve seen!
we want to go back and explore more of this area when it’s warmer out! hope you all had a wonderful weekend, too!
