Friday Fun

On Friday, after all naps were done and accounted for we walked down to midtown to meet Brian.

Brian off work early + perfect weather = the most beautiful evening in the city

Stopping by Columbus Circle for a jump in the fountains. 

Isabella, "I like Times Square."
Me, "It's a fun place, isn't it?"
Isabella, "Mom, I knew this was Times Square!"
(In the last week she's developed a strong sense of places/areas in the city.  I'm amazed.)
Feeding pigeons in TriBeCa.
Enjoying the sunset and green grass in Battery Park.  The kids ran and ran and then rolled and rolled all over this lawn.
Not pictured: Dinner at Max Restaurant.  We found them via yelp, and I'm so glad we did.  The gnocchi alla sorrentina (homemade gnocchi w/tomato sauce, mozzarella & basil) was so soft and tender.  The spaghetti alla chitarra (lamb ragu over homemade spaghetti) was fantastic.  And the insalata di finocchio fresco (fennel salad w/parmigiano & balsamic vinegar) was so fresh, simple and delicious.  (We made the same fennel salad Sunday night.  It will make a regular appearance on our table now.)

Also not pictured: We walked almost all the way home along the Hudson River.  It was such a beautiful, perfect night.  The big kids slept in the stroller, Simon slept in the ergo.  We all slept extremely well once we were home and tucked in bed around 11pm.
