Bryant Park + NYC Library

On April Fools Day, these ladies and I took our kids into the city for a picnic lunch at Bryant Park. The plan was to let them run around the lawn, but unfortunately it wasn’t open yet for the season. But Eva and Grayson still had fun chasing each other around the pavement, and riding the carousel. Before we left, Eva crossed the rope and ran as fast as she could across the lawn. I tried to get her to come back to me, but she just kept running. So, there I went. Chasing my child around the lawn while all of Bryant Park watched. It was so embarrassing. As if we weren’t enough of a spectacle enough as young moms in the city with all our kids. But we all had a good laugh.

Afterwards, we went to the children’s exhibit at the library. You should click here to read about the exhibit because it was SO interesting and beautiful!

The ABC of It is an examination of why children’s books are important: what and how they teach children, and what they reveal about the societies that produced them. Through a dynamic array of objects and activities, the exhibition celebrates the extraordinary richness, artistry, and diversity of children’s literature across cultures and time.

Yum! It was our first afternoon out in the city together since October, so it got us VERY excited for the warm weather and SUMMER! Woo too!
