Taking A Bite Out Of The Big Apple!

 I rarely have the time to stop and smell the roses with the girls and all. Here in NYC though there is just an abundance of things that just catch your eye no matter what!  I just had to take photos and share with you all. After all, it is part of my NYC adventures!
Legoland has a new flagship store at Rockefeller Center and outside their store they built huge apples out of Legos.

It caught my attention because my middle child asked me if that was the “Big apple we were gonna take a bite of?"  Dumbfounded by this question I asked, “what?” 
“Yeah,” she said, “you said we were moving here because daddy wanted to take a bite out of the Big Apple!!” I laughed so hard I almost fell over!

Belvedere Castle in Central Park. Built in the highest natural point in NYC.

We met up with some friends to relax in the shade on a super hot day. We enjoyed some cold wine and champagne. It was super-nice to have some adult time, since I had began to speak baby-talk to my husband. I think they enjoyed playing with my kids too. 

Around the corner from our apt. there is a park called Carl Schurz Park. What makes this park interesting is that it’s not only the home of Gracie Mansion (official home of the mayor of New York) but it has amazing views of the East River.  

We took the girls to Central Park but at a different end of the park. In the middle of the park there was ballerina. At first we thought she was a statue but it was a real person fully painted and in a tutu!

Of course my middle daughter went nuts because she loves everything ballet! My life is definitely full of chaos, tears, and dirty diapers, but it is wonderful to explore the marvels of New York City with my kids!


  1. Wow, I really enjoyed these pictures of NYC. Ive never been so seeing the sights that aren't the touristy spots is wonderful to see. That castle is beautiful. What a great place for a picnic. Your daughters are beautiful. You are very blessed.
