As Summer Fades

 

When children head back to school and the weather becomes less humid the feeling of summer begins to fade.  As we absorbed our last city summer weekend together, as a little family of three, I could not help but reminisce on what made this summer special.  There were milestones for all, many playdates and birthday parties, family and friend visits, fumbled and learned as a parent, which I’m sure will be a lifetime of growth, learned not to sweat the small stuff, and learned how to squeeze a stroller onto a subway during rush hour.  I took countless pictures and went through them all!  Tear.  Here are some of my summer favorites…

Exploring the city through the eyes of a child…a new experience for us all and how fun it was…covered half of the city parks…

Maddie’s summer milestones…first birthday and walking on her own…

Our many new ways to get around the city with a stroller…taking the ferry through the East River is one…

Family trips we took over the summer.  Learned to adjust travel schedules to nap schedules…no trip is a small trip or as simple as it was before…

Numerous fun playdates and birthday parties.  I’ve never been to so many parties in one summer, actually make that a year!

My husband’s 40th surprise birthday party…two big birthday milestones this summer…phew, have to hand it to those party planners!

and, of course, all the crazy places and situations Maddie got herself into.

May the last few weeks of your summer be fun, memorable and shared with those you love.  This week we’re planning for guests and getting ready for our final summer trip.

What are some memorable moments from your summer?  I would love to hear about them.

Until next ride,

Amy

 

Sunrise in NYC

It’s a beautiful June morning in NYC!  No humidity, perfect 60 degree temp, and the horns aren’t honking yet!  Anyone who knows me well knows I love the mornings.

Why you ask?  It’s the feeling of a new start, the sun peaking over the tall buildings, the calmness before the hustle and bustle, the crisp air, the feeling as though you have the whole day to get things done and in your mind you know it’s going to happen, and lets not forget, the smell and taste of that morning brewed coffee.  There is nothing like going to a corner NYC mom and pops coffee shop where everyone’s on a first name basis!

Ah, the fresh start of a NYC morning. [Read more...]
