Museum Run :: Embroidered Shirt & Printed Skirt

Hello, my dear friends! Prior to my trip to Spain, the boys and I actually went up to New York City for a weekend. It was an impromptu trip — when #1 son expressed his interest in seeing Greek & Roman mythology figures, my eyes brightened because it was my long-time dream come true!

This was long ago, even before I had a boyfriend, I saw at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, a young mother and her little boy, around 5-ish, admiring a painting together. “What did you see in the picture, baby?” asked the mom, he said something; then she asked another question:”What do you feel?”…after that I moved away because I didn’t want to appear intruding. I could never forget that moment, however, because that was when I felt connected with the idea of having a family and being a parent. I wanted a similar moment for myself.5S6A6234 5S6A6316 5S6A63795S6A6417

When my boy and I stood in the Greek and Roman Art hall of the Met, he was super excited. We looked around for figures he is familiar with — Dionysus, Hercules, Zeus, Hera, Eros…the stories he could tell! We even did a little cameo of one of the statue of Dionysus and a small woman, only the roles were reversed in our case. 😀5S6A6573 5S6A6582 5S6A6575 5S6A6623 5S6A6696

Our 3-day visit to NYC was fun-packed but not super stressful: quality time in ToysRUs in Time Square; museum runs to the Children’s Museum of Manhattan and of course, the MET; Radio City Christmas Spetacular; 9.11 Memorial (as per #1 son’s request); brunch at Cafe Lalo, desserts at Lady M, even a little play time in the Central Park. Don’t want to get too far ahead of myself, but I am looking forward to taking my children to more of these explorative mini vacations, and later on, let them lead me to new adventures. 🙂5S6A6751 5S6A6776 5S6A6730-2
