for months we have been trying to make it out to see tom fruin’s stained glass house installation in brooklyn, and we finally made it happen last week! it’s lit up at night, which i’m sure is even more beautiful than a daytime visit, but it was pretty amazing even midday. if you’re in the area and haven’t had a chance yet to check it out, it’s worth it! more of the glass house below, but here are a few photos from our time out there. because you can’t visit dumbo without visiting julianna’s, or the carousel, or the brooklyn ice cream factory. i mean, i guess you could, but it’s not how i’d do it. ;)
what i love is how this newborn-mister-conrad-magic has not worn off on eleanor or samson yet. sure, there are moments where the sibling love isn’t as intense in sappiness, but for the most part, they can’t get enough of this baby and i can’t get enough of all three of them.
and LOL at conrad here. baby faces crack me up all day long.
see?! it’s beautiful. a few of the windows are broken now so eleanor and samson kept leaning their heads inside to yell, “ECHO!”
me and my sweet little girl. we run the world. GIRLS. ;)
ps. this gryphon sweater is an oldie i from a few years ago i snagged on sale and i can’t seem to find it online for you anywhere. my high-rise jeans are from jcrew.
we stopped into julianna’s just as they opened, but as luck would have it, a school called in 14 pizzas for delivery right before we sat down. ha! doesn’t matter though, we don’t mind waiting patiently for good food. even eleanor and samson understand and appreciate what good pizza is these days. it makes me feel like i’m raising them right. ;)
and same with jane’s carousel! always fun to visit! it was conrad’s first time on the carousel which was exciting!
by the way, this darling wool baby suit conrad is wearing once belonged to his papa. good job nana on saving this adorable stuff!
brooklyn ice cream factory makes the best butter pecan ice cream, in my opinion. and these big ice cream cones the kiddos have here are apparently their “small single scoop!” ha! best day ever to be e and s. also, proud of josh for holding strong on his no sugar, no ice cream and no soda for a year challenge. don’t worry guys, i’m holding strong on making sure his portions in those areas aren’t going to waste. ;) we’re good here!
happy memorial day, everyone!
