#SummerintheCity

We just got home from a three week vacation and it’s been soooo long since I’ve updated on the blog! I “forgot” to bring my laptop, and by forgot I mean I actually forgot because I had to pack for four people and I also didn’t pack any socks for Greg but lets not get into that because its a touchy subject in our relationship right now.

Also quick question for other parents (mostly moms): do you pack for every member of your household? Somehow I have been plagued with the job of packing for Greg, usually because he is working while the packing gets done. But I always end up forgetting some important item (socks, boxers, shoes, energy drinks). Is there a way to overcome this? Probably a simple option would be having him pack his own shit. BUT IS THAT REALISTIC? Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

The first week of our trip was spent in NYC. We went to the city back in February (you can read that post here) and we couldn’t wait to come back in the warmer weather. I was a bit nervous before we left because Jack was going through a really awesome sleep regression and I wasn’t sure how it was going to play out over vacation. Turns out walking around for hours all tucked into the stroller was the best medicine. We ordered one of those “skateboards” for our stroller to break up all the walking for Maddy, but she is a trooper and we didn’t even use it that much. That chick is fully charged from sunrise to sunset and all the walking resulted in early bedtimes and sound sleeping. Total win for all parties.

Here are a bunch of pictures from our time in the city! Hoping to go back this fall.

Jack was all set with Coney Island after a few hours. I also think he was pissed we wouldn’t let him eat a hot dog.

The day we chose to walk the High Line was also the day it rained. After a few arguments with Maddy we made the best of the situation and just walked through the rain.

My good friend recommended the restaurant Malatesta in the village, and it was THE BEST MEAL OF OUR LIVES. Could not get enough. Trying to get them to deliver to Boston.

We did one of those touristy boat cruises around the city and it was really cool. The tour guide was awesome and the views of the city from the boat can’t be beat.

I found this picture on my phone and realized Maddy took it one day while we were in an uber. I thought it was a pretty good shot! Maybe she’s the next Ansel Adams.

Did you guys have a nice summer/vacation? Go anywhere fun? We also went to Maine and Cape Cod, so I’ll be posting those pictures soon.

Have a great weekend!
