Holiday Snapshots Part 2: New York City

The Big Apple! I’ve been in New York a couple of times – once with The Husband – but it was the first time for both kids. Although there are about a gazillion museums in New York I still want to see, we again focused our itinerary on the kids. The weather was a bit of a challenge at times – ranging from 8 C and torrential rain to 28 C and blazing sunshine, but we managed to tick of most of the things, both indoors and outdoors, that had been on everyone’s wish list.

Not your average five year old: The Boy’s number one thing he wanted to do in New York was visit the Guggenheim! So we did.

Another city, another carousel. A treat for walking the whole of the Brooklyn Bridge without complaining.

A stop at the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory is a must when visiting the Brooklyn Bridge Park.

    Hi Jenni,
    Looks like you and your family hit some of the best NYC spots, and this autumn has been so beautiful. I enjoy your photos, makes me want to go and play tourist for an afternoon! P.S. I absolutely love Scotland and treasure my travels through such a beautiful land. R.
