full weekend!

Saturday: We hiked Bear Mountain with friends. Andrew and Isaac each hiked up about half way and were carried on backs and in packs the rest of the climb. We were super impressed with how much they hiked. And although I had my camera with me throughout the hike, it did me little good with dead batteries. Stink.

Sunday: We took a quick trip to a new park on the East River overlooking Manhattan.

Monday: This morning we went the Natural History Museum to look at the Earth and Space hall. It was a huge hit with Andrew. He especially loved the giant planets hanging from the ceiling.

And the sculptures of the Earth and Moon.

Isaac loved finding the letter S.

And don't be fooled by his expression here. He gives the appearance of being a quiet and shy little angel. But in this photo he is standing on a table and the time he spent out of his stroller he was zipping around like a little ping pong ball laughing hysterically. oh that boy. love him to bits.

And even though we didn't travel this holiday weekend, I still have a ton of laundry to do. Why is that?

Oh the laundry! I keep trying to convince my family that they could spend a little more time naked, perhaps!

Oh, yes, the laundry, the ironing, the walking the dog, it just goes on and on!
I ADORE that photo of A looking up ~ just look at magic and awe of his expression.
Oh, and I just mentioned you in a post today. I'm delighted that you are delighted when I leave a comment!

I bet that hall was a hit with Andrew! I would have loved to see that.

Such a beautiful weekend. Loved it. Even with a sick husband.
