Scenes from the weekend.

This weekend we celebrated Emily's 10th birthday. It is crazy how fast time flies! Saturday afternoon we opened presents and had cake and ice cream for lunch. That evening we saw The Light Princess on Broadway at the New Victory Theater. Parents, I highly recommend checking this theater out. We have seen several shows there and are always impressed. The tickets are affordable, the theater provides free lockers for all of your belongings, and the cast often comes out after performances to take photos and sign autographs. Emily got to meet the entire cast and asked them all to sign her playbill! After the show we had a special birthday dinner at the Redeye Grill, where Brian and I worked together several years ago. Our friend Gina took amazing care of us and orchestrated the most spectacular Happy Birthday song for Emily. The entire restaurant, along with the piano player and singer, sang to her as a sparkler-topped cake and gigantic mound of cotton candy were delivered to the table. It was amazing!

On Sunday we spent the morning inside watching movies and cleaning up the house. Sunday afternoon I ran some errands in the Flatiron District and admired Gazing Globes, an art installation by Paula Hayes in Madison Square Park. I will share more photos of the beautiful globes later on this week!

    1. Hey Adrienne! Thank you so much for your comment. We had such a wonderful time celebrating both Emily and Brian's birthdays this spring. I was so happy I got that shot of her laughing with her cake- she of course was laughing at Brian while he was singing happy birthday in his best opera voice. I hope you are having a wonderful spring!
