Photos from the weekend

How was your weekend? The crisp fall weather was gorgeous! After a nutty week, this weekend was great and restorative. (Thanks for the sweet comments.) Here are a few more photos, just for fun...
We met this lovely street artist, who Toby thought was Santa. His head almost exploded.
We met some friends at the playground. (Funnily enough, this little guy above was Toby's very first friend.)
Anton has been smiling like crazy! It kills me!
On Saturday evening, we had peanut-butter-and-jelly-sandwich picnic in the grassy meadow in front of our new building (where Toby has had all his birthday parties). Anton passed on the sandwiches and instead ate his hands.
These were the views! Since our building is way over by the water, Alex and I were talking about how feels like we live in the suburbs but in Manhattan. It's a funny mix. Looking forward to sharing more photos of our new apartment once we finally get it decorated.
The scene on my desk on Monday morning made me smile.

What did you do this weekend? Hope you had a good one! Lots of love! xoxo

Santa Claus! :) so cute.

And OH, my boy has the same yellow school bus. Funny enough, it was a present given to him in Croatia. Where, ha...they don't actually have yellow school busses. :)

Have you guys ever considered living in DUMBO? You would love it. There's something magical and ethereal about living in NYC but being so close to the water.

My little one (who's 4 months) loves to eat her hands too! Recently she has been stuffing both in her mouth so often she sometimes gags herself. And then spits up. I'm not lying.

Carolyn said...

Anton and my son are both big "hand sandwich" fans!!!

Scout and Rice said...

Oh I'm jealous of your lovely weather! Here is Seattle it rained almost non-stop for two days straight. We spent most of it cuddled up in bed together playing with iPads and reading books. :)

Love these pics. Such happy faces. It was a beautiful weekend! Camping at Lake Sacandaga, apple cider donuts at Saratoga Apple. I am in love with upstate New York.

Gorgeous pics, all, and look at how both of the boys are growing! How wonderful!

Thank you for sharing - warms my heart to see.

You make NY looks so livable! Congrats on the move. So funny following blogs; I told my husband, 'Cup of Jo is moving!' Like your an old friend :)

Laurel Cyr said...

The stuff of life. Beautiful! The days of babydom are incredible, trying, and all too short. My boy is already 7 months old and I can't believe how fast the time has gone! Congrats on your lovely little family :)

Wow, that seriously sounds like a really beautiful weekend, and the pictures most definitely show it too! I'm glad you enjoyed it.

What a lovely weekend! I picked up Mastering the Art of French Eating per your recommendation and I'm loving it. After reading the first chapter I found myself making plans to meet a friend for steak frites at a french bistro in Portland! I'm loving it, but reading it before bed (as I'm about to do now) is probably not the smartest thing - it leaves me very hungry! Have a great week!

utheychan said...

I love their smile! You are very lucky to have these boys. :) And I am interesting with the shirt that Toby wore, that blue (or purple) shirt. Looks like Batik design of Indonesia. Yes, I am a reader from Indonesia :)

Caroline B. said...

I love your lipstick! What is it?

Katie Appleyard said...

These photos are so gorgeous. I love the shots at the bathroom sink and the shots of what looks like Brooklyn? I miss NY so much :)

Sweet Apple Lifestyle

Amy P said...

Pudgy baby smiles! Love them so much. My son is turning six months in a couple days, and so seeing photos of Anton reminds me of how fast it goes!

Victoria said...

Hi lovey!
Question: what shade of lippy are you wearing in the first pic?
