for most of this past week, the weather in the city has been in the 70’s. so we’ve been out basically basking in this gorgeous weather by opening our arms wide with our heads thrown back towards the sky spinning in circles sound of music style while also skipping everywhere we go. just kidding, but it feels like it.
we took the bikes out yesterday, as one does once the weather no longer denies you that love. i had high hopes of a long full day of bike rides around the city to get some errands done, a bike ride through the park, and then to pick up a floor plant i have been wanting to get for our front room (not sure our kids are completely old enough for a plant in the front room, but they’ve been handling the rug really well, so i’m up for testing my luck.) anyway, as we set off for the day, we realized we had forgotten wipes (always a bad sign), that conrad was growing tired and we weren’t going to make it as far as we’d hoped. so we just biked to our favorite spot for smoothies and acai bowls and ate them picnic style at a chess table at the playground. it was super low key but we all had a really good time. and on the way home, samson said, “i just love new york when it’s warm.” and i felt like he took the words straight out of my mouth. me too, kid. me too.
nursing on a brownstone stoop break. and this kid, giving me my helmet! such a helper!
samson kept climbing up onto the bike (rather than into the bucket) and asking “you all in? you ready?!” hahahaha!
these two together. even with helmets on their heads, i think they are the cutest boys ever.
that moment when i climbed into the back bucket too to help divvy out the kids’ fruit snacks. i love them so much.
the lashes and freckle game of miss eleanor davis always stops me in my tracks. she is so beautiful. and such a good good girl. i’m so proud of her and the big sister she is to her little brothers.
conrad gets really obsessed with everyone’s sunglasses. samson was wearing these and he couldn’t take it. he had to have them on his own face. his smile and wave once he had them on were gold. he was just so proud of himself. i almost cried from laughing so hard.
when you don’t realize that your shoes match your bike until you see it in the picture later. oops.
ps. i’ve been on a mission the past few months looking for some high-waisted capri denim. i’ve ordered and tried on and sent back one too many pairs (online shopping is my best way to shop these days). but i’m confident i found the perfect pair this past week. i’m obsessed with them. apologies now for never taking them off again until october.
his favorite thing is being in charge of everyone’s hand sanitizer before we eat a snack! go conrad!
acai bowls and smoothies for an early dinner!
she takes her airplane wings with her almost everywhere. it’s basically the sweetest thing ever.
have a great weekend, friends!
