eleanor and samson have been killing it at tennis camp in the mornings this past week (feeling so proud of them!) and it’s been extra sweet getting to have our mornings with just conrad. we try our best to really make time to do things throughout the year with each of our kids individually or one on one, but having a full week of mornings with just conrad has been wonderful.
on one of these mornings, we swung by the seated ballerina by jeff koons that is at rockefeller center for a few more days (until the 17th!) to see the 45-foot-high inflated sculpture in person! i’d seen so many photos of it, but it truly was unbelievable to see in person. conrad was especially taken back and kept giggling when he looked up at her, pointing at her blue shoes while waving and yelling out, “hiiiiiiiiiiiiii!!!!!!” i love him.
conrad said at one point while we were beside the sculpture almost underneath it, “she’s looking at me!” and i thought it was so sweet. kind of magnificent to see a sculpture larger than life that is also looking down and almost over you.
i loved how the seated ballerina looked entirely different from the other side. almost like she was in a mid stretch or moving between dance moves.
also, does this get anyone else crazy excited for the rockefeller center christmas tree that will be up in approximately 4-ish months?!
